eSailing Nations Cup

A Nation v Nation knockout challenge
 

Congratulations to the British team for winning the 2020 eSailing Nations Cup!

World Sailing and Virtual Regatta, the leading digital sailing platform, launched the eSailing Nations Cup 2020 in July, a nation versus nation knockout challenge to crown the best eSailing nation in the world.

Open to nations who have registered for an eSailing National Championship, the eSailing Nations Cup saw thirteen national teams of ten participate in mass fleet races and then an initial knockout round before advancing to Quarter and Semi-Finals. The initial ranking round took place on Saturday 10th October with the GBR team taking a brilliant second place.

This top 3 result saw them straight through to the quarter finals where they took on Germany. Following this win team GBR had a tense battle with the third seed Italian team, winning 5-4 putting them against the favourites, Spain, in the final. After a great start in the earlier races put Great Britain ahead 4-1 it was team captain Deja Vu that won a photo-finish one v one to seal overall victory.

The RYA selected 10 highly skilled and talented eSailors to represent GBR using the World Sailing's 2020 RYA eSailing Nation’s Cup GBR Team selection criteria . You can catch up on all the action on World Sailing's eSailing World Championship Facebook page.  Please find World Sailing' Nations Cup Notice of Race here.
