The World Sailing Show – April 2020
Published on March 30th, 2020
From non-stop around the world racers, to Olympic campaigns; from seasoned professionals, to grass roots sailors, The World Sailing Show provides a monthly view of the racing world. Here’s the April 2020 show synopsis:
This month the World Sailing Show aims to bring some light relief from the terrible pandemic sweeping the globe. We have stunning images of Caribbean sailing, big boat action from the 52 Super Series in Cape Town, and we check in with the America’s Cup defenders Emirates Team New Zealand in Auckland.
The sport of sailing has seen its schedules decimated by the COVID-19 emergency. From Olympic classes to the America’s Cup, sailors and fleets have been forced ashore. We have a round-up.
• Racing abandoned – sailing navigates the Coronavirus
• America’s Cup – one year to go with defenders Emirates Team New Zealand
• 52 Super Series – full action from the opening regatta
• RORC Caribbean 600 – the winners
