Title:Editorial
Article Abstract:This issue carries a report of the establishing of a new record for the fastest crossing by sea of the North Atlantic, by a 91-metre wave-piercing catamaran. The Editorial discusses the concept of the Blue Riband of the North Atlantic and the Hales Trophy. It covers the history of the Blue Riband and some of the significant vessels involved and argues that the fast ferries that are now crossing the Atlantic in record times are a totally different type of vessel and not relevant to the Blue Riband.
