The December 2022 episode leads with an in-depth preview of The Ocean Race 2023, which gets under way on January 15 in Alicante, Spain. Following a nine-stop route, the new-look event will round Africa’s southernmost point before crossing the Pacific, navigating up the eastern seaboard of the United States to cross the Atlantic, and returning to Europe after more than six months at sea.
Other highlights include:
• Emirates Team New Zealand setting new land speed record pace
• A look back at a record-breaking year for Para Sailing
• A round up of the year’s biggest events across all classes around the globe
There is a special look at the growth of Para Sailing this year as World Sailing and the sailors around the world eagerly await the International Paralympic Committee’s decision on whether the sport is reinstated to the LA28 Paralympic Games.
Elsewhere, the show catches up with 37th America’s Cup preparations where Emirates Team New Zealand pilot Glenn Ashby has just sailed the land yacht Horonuku faster than any previous records, clocking a phenomenal 222.4kph.
There are also recaps of an eventful year on the water with the key moments in the Princess Sofía Regatta, Sailing World Cup, the GKA Kite Big Air World Championships, SailGP Season 2 finale, and much more.
