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.

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.”

Shipping Overview: We no longer have the Rowing Club as a venue. The containers must be unloaded, then stored offsite. The unload location is: Lot 71, Seminole Boat Ramp 2710 S. Bayshore Drive Miami, FL  33133 USA Offsite storage can be arranged privately through your forwarder (or through the contact in the link below) but we are also looking into a city option for a nominal fee.   The unloading site does not have a loading dock (shelf), and it will not be possible to use the roll on/roll off delivery trucks like we used at Rowing Center.  There are no side loader trucks  and cranes are your responsibility, but Rock-It Cargo (see link below) will attempt to combine deliveries and minimize crane expense. There is not a forklift onsite, but there are nearby marinas that you could coordinate with.   There are many warehouses in the Miami area that could accept your containers for unloading and possibly storage.  Your forwarder may already have a relationship with one of them.   The delivery address and boat ramp is where the 49er, FX and Nacras will be sailing out of, there is launching from the ramp.   Let me know if you have any additional questions after referencing http://miami.ussailing.org/competitor_information/shipping/ for other resources Email the regatta office with the timing of your container.
