From Saturday 05 March tickets will be available to purchase for the last World Cup event before the 2016 Rio Olympics.
From the 06 – 12 June 2016 the Sailing World Cup rolls in to Weymouth and Portland for the fourth leg of the 2016 series and you could be there to cheer on the British Sailing Team in their final showdown before the Games in August.
Hosted by the RYA at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, which hosted the Olympic and Paralympic sailing competitions four years ago, the event will showcase over 600 of the best sailors in the world and you could have a ring side seat in the ‘seaside’ inspired spectators area.
“Last year we had over 600 visitors join us at the venue to soak up the atmosphere and cheer the sailors on, so this year we are making it bigger and better and looking to provide a fantastic send-off for the sailors at their last major event before the Games”, commented Event Director, Bas Edmonds.
Take in all the action
Take in all the action in the boat park as the sailors prepare their boats for racing and get close to your favourite British sailors as they prepare to take on their international rivals on home waters. Visitors will also be able to watch the racing live on the big screen (Saturday and Sunday only) and have front row seats to the medal presentations (Sunday only).
There will also be a number of shore-side activities, as well as the opportunity to get afloat and try dinghy sailing, windsurfing and stand-up paddle boarding for free on both Saturday 11 and Sunday 12. A number of different entertainment activities for all the family are also being planned, so why not pack a picnic and grab your deck chair and join us for all the action. (Seating is provided in the spectator area but is limited).
Tickets are available for the final qualification day on Saturday 11 June and the Medal Race Day on Sunday 12 June. You can also visit the venue for free from the 06 – 10 June during practice sessions and qualifying, but note, there is no live streaming of the racing at the venue on these days.
