H. F. Morin Scott and Colin Mudie, known for their sail training vessels Royalist, Lord Nelson and Young Endeavour, have designed Champion of the Seas, a 420passenger cruise ship which they anticipate will break many ocean speed records for vessels under sail. Two companies, Skysail Cruises Ltd. in the UK, and Royal Skysail Line, Inc. in the USA, have been formed to float the project. Because of the highly advanced design and technological improvements in sail design and ship handling, there will be only 27 seamen among her crew of 180.
