The World Sailing Show – May 2016

Why would a moustache make you go faster offshore? We find out why some of the world’s top solo racing teams are sprouting weird shaped foils out either side of the 60ft racing machines and why they have got this nickname.
We also head to the Big Apple, New York, to see America’s Cup racing on the Hudson River against the spectacular Manhattan backdrop. This was the first time that Cup boats had raced here for 120 years.
Women sailors were queuing around the block when a new Olympic class was announced for the 2016 Games. Three years later and the learning curve has been steep, but the results impressive. So who’s in the frame for a medal in Rio? Olympic expert Andy Rice lifts the lid on the women’s skiff and gives his predictions for Rio. And on the subject of the Games, there’s one nation that has been in the top three medal winners for years, but now they want more, Gold. We find out how they are planning for success out as we head to the Sailing World Cup in Hyères.
Plus, news from around the world.
