PORTSMOUTH, GBR (#1046) – Our third, and unexpected, "photo of the day" of Sir Ben's yacht – which we understand is a modified Quant 28 that was splashed yesterday (Friday) and apparently load tested dockside then some more while being towed.

The photo is a Sailing Illustrated world exclusive, with thanks to photographer Jelle Dingemans (NED). If you share this photo, please credit SI and Jelle Dingemans. Photo below is a digitally zoomed version of the original, above.
