World Sailing – which is the governing body for all competitors in our sport, whether we like it or not has 5 “special” events.

Those are the America’s Cup, Extreme Sailing Series, the World Match Race Tour, the Volvo Ocean Race and some Windsurfing event. Sorry, I don’t know what that event is as it holds no interest for me.

So, bearing that in mind, and with AC, ESS & WMRT already on 2 hulls, if the Volvo Ocean Race selects a multihull for 2020 then the closest World Sailing special event to what the majority of sailors do (sail monohulls) will be an air-rowing, sorry –  windsurfing event which many sailors don’t even consider sailing anyway.

At least in Formula One Grand Prix the race cars and road cars have the same number of wheels. – Shanghai Sailor.
