Video Highlights: World Cup Series Miami
Published on January 30th, 2020
The schedule at 2020 Hempel World Cup Series Miami had qualifying races for the 182 sailors from 45 nations from January 20 to 24 with Medal Races on January 25.
The 31st edition for the event was a bit small, with only 7 of the 10 Olympic events due to scheduling conflicts with Southern Hemisphere championships, but the competition was no less vital.
This full 52-minute highlights show includes interviews with 470 Men sailors Jordi Xammar and Nicolas Rodriguez (ESP), Laser Radial sailor Vasileia Karachaliou (GRE), and RS:X windsurfer David Mier Y Teran (MEX), as well as features on tracking used in sailing, US Sailing Olympic Director Meredith Brody and the US Sailing Centre venue, and a coral reef restoration project in Miami which sailors took part in.
The World Cup Series is an annual circuit of Olympic sailing for elite and professional sailors, and a key touchpoint for fans and media to connect to the sport of sailing and develop support for athletes on their road to Tokyo 2020 Olympics and beyond. Over 2,000 of the world’s leading sailors, representing 75 nations, have competed in the World Cup Series since its inception in 2008.
