The latest episode of the World Sailing show goes behind the scenes to look at the first weeks of testing ahead of the 2024 America’s Cup in Barcelona. Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli’s LEQ12 test boat is currently in Cagliari as they get used to the systems and controls while familiarising themselves with tactical moves to prepare for the main event.
There is a special look at this year’s Rolex Middle Sea Race and a rundown of recent events including the 470 Worlds, 52 Super Series, Route du Rhum, Women’s Match Racing Tour, and Yacht Racing Forum in Malta.
There is also an in-depth look at the GKA Kite World Tour in Taiba, Brazil, where 2022 Freestyle World Champions were crowned and Frenchman Charles Brodel made history by landing the first contra loop front roll board off and back roll kite loop board-offs on a hydrofoil in a competition.
Elsewhere in the show, we look at the only team – so far – to lift the SailGP trophy, newly-crowned World Sailing Team of the Year, Team Australia SailGP skippered by two-time Rolex World Sailor of the Year Tom Slingsby as their quest for a third consecutive title continues.
