The Summer of Sailing 2019/2020

We previously announced the 2019 Worlds will be in Auckland, New Zealand in early December 2019. Complimenting that regatta is the freshly signed 2020 Worlds to be held in Geelong, Australia in mid-February 2020.

Our fleets will be able to head down under for a five regatta series between two fantastic sailing venues for an intense bit of racing and training in the final build up to Tokyo 2020

Geelong Welcomes the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 for the 2020 Worlds!

Geelong welcomes Olympic sailors for 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships in 2020

Three of the highest profile Olympic sailing classes will converge on Geelong in February 2020, with the 2020 49er, 49erFX & Nacra 17 World Championships set to be hosted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on the beautiful flat waters of Corio Bay.

With the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Australia is the perfect location for these elite sailors to compete in the 2020 World Championship and make their final preparations before heading to Japan.

The event, which will be held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club from February 8 – February 16 February 2020./.. read on

Massive Viewership at Shanghai Cup

Documentary from the 2018 Shanghai Cup.
The Shanghai Cup was a fun regatta this year again. 11 international teams and the local Chinese team raced 12 races over three days. The lake used was fantastic, as it’s a circle that is about 30% bigger than a race course area, so the water stayed super flat while winds grew over 20 knots. Teams had a blast, and so did the public.

The stats are a little difficult to decipher, but it seems like there was a reach of 750,000 people over the multiple online platforms, including 122,000 simultaneous live viewers at the peak!

Plans for 2019 are coming together. The regatta will be right after the regattas in Japan, and should include racing on both the lake and the Bund (downtown Shanghai).

The Shanghai Yacht Club sponsorship of the Nacra 17 class provides tremendous support to the growth of the class and a route to professionalizing Olympic sailing beyond any other avenues currently open.

Rio 2016 Commemerative Poster for FX

Check out this commemorative poster from the big regatta in Rio 2016!

In the inaugural games for the 49erFX, the women of skiff lit up the shores of Brazil in spectacular fashion. The regatta came down to a single race for all the medals, and only a couple seconds separating gold and silver.

This artful print is great for your Yacht Club, a sponsors hallway, your trophy room, or the wall of friends, family, and training partners.

Shop Poster
The perfect gift for family during the holidays upcoming or to thank a past, current, or future sponsor.

Should the posters prove popular we’ll build them out for 49er and Nacra 17 as well.
