The World Sailing Show – September 2018

Following hot topics in this month’s WSS video:

1:01 Hempel Sailing World Championships Part 1

2:09 The rise of Japan

6:33 New to the podium

12:15 TP52 World Championships

17:37 Extreme Sailing Series Cardiff

18:50 Hempel Sailing World Championships Part 2

The Hempel Sailing World Championships was always going to be a big deal, but it wasn’t just the silverware and the sailors that drew the crowds in Aarhus, Denmark. With two years to go until the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this was the first opportunity for nations to qualify for the Games and a key opportunity to start putting theory into practice for teams. Make no mistake, Aarhus was a big deal for all and the World Sailing Show was in the thick of it.

This month we also head to Portugal for the TP52 World Championships and an exclusive guided tour of the world’s most advanced keelboats, as well as checking in with the Extreme Sailing Series in Cardiff.

wss918I used to love the simple elegance of the TP52 in SL. Too bad she sailed like a train on rails and her script was never appropriately updated and she was soon forgotten after a very short racing career.
