Fans of super-exciting Olympic classes racing will be able to stream action from the 49er, 49er FX and Nacra 17 European Championships live, it has been announced.

The crucial final four days of the regatta, held at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy from May 13 to 19, will be broadcast live online thanks to a new partnership with production company Icarus Sports.

The broadcast will cover the final two days of fleet racing, staged in Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay, plus the all-important medal races to decide the medal winners in each class.

Icarus Sports will also produce highlights and news packages for external media which will reach more than a billion people in the months following the event.

The regatta is set to be one of the biggest of the 2019 season, with more than 400 sailors expected to attend. It will be the first time Olympic classes racing has taken place in the UK since 2016.

It also comes at a crucial time of the Olympic cycle, and a number of nations will use it as a selection event ahead of Tokyo 2020.

“Bringing the best of fleet racing to our fans is a constant goal of the classes,” said Marcus Spillane, president of the 49er, 49er FX and Nacra classes. “Showcasing the best sailors on earth in between Olympic Games is vital to telling the story and journey of how these champions come to be.”

The Olympic sailing world reconvenes next week on the Spanish island of Mallorca, where we will see over 1,200 athletes competing across the ten Olympic classes at the annual Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia Iberostar regatta, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Olympic regatta held on the Bay of Palma marks the beginning of the 2019 European season for the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra17. While this is not an Olympic selection regatta, the Trofeo Princesa Sofia is always an important event in every sailors calendar. Many teams will have been away from international competition since late in 2018, or in the past few months competed in only the Miami World Series event in light and tricky conditions. The Trofeo Princesa Sofia regatta is an early performance indicator for the season ahead, allowing teams to get back into Olympic level competition prior to the rigorous European schedule. This is made all the more important given many teams are pushing for national selection ahead the Tokyo 2020 games, to be sailed in Enoshima Japan in late July next year. Trofeo Princesa Sofia is an event that comes without the added pressure often associated with the World Series, European or World Championship events. Sailors and spectators can expect action packed class racing in one of the best sailing venues the world has to offer.
