On this week’s “World on Water” global sailing news show:
In this episode, the gloves are off and all the 35th Americas Cup teams are launching their final race yachts and guess what? The Kiwi team pull a blinder with pedal powered winches! Is this the “Wing-Keel” moment for this challenge? Sailing has changed as Oracle has bronze surfers in the crew and ETNZ has Olympic Bronze medal cyclists. We await the first trials. It’s time for the RORC Caribbean 600 and we preview and cover the race start, it’s Day 110 in the Vendee Globe and at the other end of sailing the boys and girls fight out the Opti Australian Championships. Phew, another big week globally in sailing and you see it all here in the “World on Water”.
