Have your say

HUGE masts built in Portchester have been fitted to the largest sailing yacht in the world.

The structures were manufactured by Magma Structures at Trafalgar Wharf, as part of a three-year project for the vessel, called Sailing Yacht A.

International reports say the yacht has been spotted in Kiel, Germany, as it was tugged from a port basin in preparation for its test voyage.

The masts left Portchester in June, and were sent to Germany.
