The Sailing World Cup comes to Miami in 2019
Sailing World Cup regattas are one of the most important sailing events of the year.
Every year, sailors and crews that usually compete in the Olympics and Paraolympics games face each other to win the World Champion title.
Many categories of sailboats participate in the world cup, such as windsurf, Laser, 49ers e 470 for both men and women categories.
During the race week, the hosting cities are packed with fans and supporters, who come from all over the world to see with their own eyes the best sailors compete for the Sailing World Cup.
Today, our blog will give you some useful information about how to follow the sailing world cup 2019. This will be a very important edition for Italy, as it’s its first time as a hosting country. As already happened in recent years, Miami will be a host city too. In January, in fact, Round 2 will take place in the beautiful waters of Florida.
How to follow the Sailing World Cup Miami 2019
Participating in first person
The Sailing World Cup always brings to town not only the best athletes, but also fans and tourists. Seeing the regattas with your own eyes will be a unique experience, and also a fun, different way to spend your holidays.
The most common way to access the event is; once you are in the town, head to the coastline near the sailing area and support your champions from there.
Otherwise, you have another more exciting option: rent a boat and see the whole event from a premium seat! Renting a boat will allow yo to sail near the regatta area, find the perfect view point and support your favourite crew from short distance.
Every regatta sets different rules and limitations for boats, don’t forget to check them!
It’s really important to start looking as soon as possible for the perfect boat and mooring. We suggest you to start looking for boats for the first two regattas in Enoshima and Miami. First come, first served! Take a look at our guide for renting a boat in Miami.
Every year, lots of events, activities and festivals are organised all around the harbour to make the tourist’s experience even better! You will have much to do between one race and another!
Following from home
If you can’t go and see the event directly at any of the harbours, you can still follow it from the comfort of your home. The best way to view it is of course through the official channels.
On the Sailing World Cup official site, you’ll find fixtures, boats and real time results of each regatta. You will also find links to the official social media networks and YouTube channel that broadcast the races live.
