On this month’s show, we begin a new series in preparation for the Olympics this summer. We start by looking at the favorites for medals in the 470 and bring you our guide to the sailing venue in Enoshima.

The Rolex Sydney Hobart is a highlight of the sailing calendar, but the 75th edition was particularly special with the largest fleet in many years. We tell the story of the race and hear from the winners.

The longest intercontinental race in the southern hemisphere gets off to a flying start. We’re aboard the Maserati multi 70 to find out how Italy’s favorite sailor, Giovanni Soldini, plans to win the Cape to Rio race.

For the first time in its 63-year history, the Finn Gold Cup has been won by a New Zealander – we find out how he did it.

We are in Australia to witness one of the most dominating performances ever at the Moth World Championships.

  • We begin our series of sailing previews for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games
  • The Cape to Rio transatlantic race is launched.
  • Finn Gold Cup action
  • The story of the 75th race from Sydney to Hobart.
  • Olympians and America’s Cup sailors face off at Moth Worlds

Characteristics


On the way to Tokyo 2020

Our series ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics begins with a look at what conditions we can expect in the waters off Enoshima. This month’s featured class is the 470. We take a look at the favorites to win medals and focus on Australians Matt Belcher and Will Ryan as potential champions.


Rolex Sydney Hobart

The Rolex Sydney Hobart is a highlight of the sailing calendar, but the 75th edition was particularly special with the largest fleet in many years. We tell the story of the race and hear from the winners.


Finnish Gold Cup

More than 60 sailors from 22 nations came to Melbourne with the aim of becoming Finland’s world champion and winning the legendary Finn Gold Cup. In the blistering Australian heat, a sailor won it for his country for the very first time in 63 years.


Cape2Rio race

The longest intercontinental yacht race in the Southern Hemisphere took place in the shadow of Table Mountain. Small boats and cruisers depart first for the 3,600-mile voyage. A week later, the big names went wild and the records should fall on one of the multihulls. We’re aboard Giovanni Soldini’s Maserati Multi 70 as the Italian sets off from Cape Town to break his own 2014 race record.
