The World Sailing Show – June 2016
Published on June 24th, 2016
The World Sailing Show provides a monthly view of the racing world. From non-stop around the world racers, to the intensity of Olympic campaigns, from seasoned professionals, to grass roots weekend warriors, The World Sailing Show will get into the latest action afloat. Here’s the June 2016 show synopsis:
We take a look at two very different routes to the Rio Games.
Multiple Finn World Champion Giles Scott has four boats, three training partners along with one of the world’s leading coaches and technical experts in his team. Meanwhile, Nacra 17 sailors Nikola Girke and Luke Ramsay are self-funded, have no training partners and were sailing a borrowed boat at the Sailing World Cup in Weymouth and still made it to the medal race.
We also hear from Olympic expert Andy Rice as he explains what makes the Finn tick and why sailing it is like playing rugby.
America’s Cup Update:
Chicago it was crash and burn as the America’s Cup World Series fleet scorched around the course. Plus, we go behind closed doors to see Artemis Racing’s secret race boat in build.
Plus, news from around the world.
