World Sailing Show - August 2019
WATCH THIS MONTH'S NEWS HERE:
The GC32 World Championships sees the fastest, flying cats foiling for honours in Lagos, Portugal. The Worlds attracted the best sailing talent from Olympic royalty to America’s Cup winners. Sir Ben Ainslie leads INEOS Rebels UK, while Team New Zealand’s Glenn Ashby is a late addition to the squad of defending champions Team Tilt. Meanwhile it’s been a busy month in Puerto Sherry, Spain, hosting both the 52 Super Series and the Para Sailing Worlds. In France the superstars of single-handed ocean racing are joined by a growing band of international sailors in the race that breeds the new generation and brings names like Peyron, Desjoyeaux and Gautier back year after year – La Solitaire du Figaro. On Lake Garda the world’s best slalom windsurfers were tearing it up in the RDD One Hour Classic and setting records in the new foiling class. And America’s Cup challengers Luna Rossa have launched a new scale prototype flying monohull test boat.
