Playing National League rugby on that fateful Saturday, the imposing second rower launched himself into a tackle, as he’d done a thousand times before. On this occasion, though, a sudden change of direction by the opponent meant James’ neck was badly impacted in the collision.
It seems a little on-the-nose titling any editorial after the name of the yacht. But given the gravitas of the Nemesis project, I thought I would cut to the chase. Not since the 118 WallyPower have I been so enamoured by a vessel. A 101m autonomous hydrofoil catamaran with a beam of more than 39m is worthy of the Thomas Crown Affair, by my standard.

“It was perfection,” wrote the late Michael Broadbent MW. The legendary wine critic and author, not to mention the man who launched Christie’s wine auctions more than 50 years ago, was describing the equally-legendary private cellar of Dr. Benjamin Ichinose at his home in Hillsborough, California. The cellar was, he insisted, “Absolutely perfect in every sort of way.”

Sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI) is an investment discipline that considers environmental, social and corporate governance criteria to generate long-term competitive financial returns and positive societal impact.

The global market for private security services, which include private guarding, surveillance and armed transport, is now worth an estimated £260bn.
