Yesterday’s capsize-filled funfest at the 49er Worlds gives way to a forecast today that’s slightly more reasonable as the fleet splits into Gold and Silver…12-18 knots are on call with meaty seas from the North and plenty of action from some of the world’s best sailors and the future stars of the AC and VOR.  Clean and team are live from 10:30 local/1130 CET.  Watch and share, and catch up on your interviews over at the Class FB page.

Clean and the 49er/Nacra 17 media team are calling it all live today, and with real breeze on for the first time in the Euros, we’re finally going to see some upwind foiling starting at 1100 CET.  49ers run in the afternoon, so don’t miss it…or if you do, just press ‘play…’  Isn’t the modern era wonderful?

Talented and shredded sailor chicks, tales of stolen cars and inter-squad rivalries, and a guy who can’t seem to lose as long as he has a female driver are the guests on today’s Adidas Morning Show at the 2017 49er/FX/Foiling Nacra Euros.  Check out Clean and the team, LIVE from the deck of the 1972 Olympic Sailing admin building as Day 2 of the event begins.  Check out Facebook for more action from the fleets.

Our Sailor Chicks of the Week are 49er FX team Rebecca Netzler and Klara Wester from Western Sweden. Sure they look good, and yeah they kick some ass on the chick’s skiff, but how about the form of this dismount during last week’s Princess Sofia in Palma?  While we can’t score the landing, Klara gets a solid 10 for amplitude and flight time, and the successful attempt to create a show for the crowd when the capsize became unsaveable. and despite the DNF they took in the medal race, the blonde-and-blue girls took 4th…

Get to know them better or support the team on their website here, and Becca’s got all the pics from the flight sequence – as well as tons more – on their Facebook page, which we highly recommend you follow.  Or if you’re under 30, there’s IG.

Excellent shot from our old friend Jesus Renedo/Sailing Energy

Martine Grael Wins 49er FX in Palma

Check out the moves from Martine Suffiatti-Grael, daughter of Brazil’s ultimate rock star sailor Torben Grael as she takes her first Sailor Chick of the Week award!  The young Brazilian, with Kahena Kunze on the front, took the win yesterday by over 30 points as the Arenal Training Camp Trophy wrapped up in Palma.  This event – the prelude to the Pricess Sofia Olympic Class event – has exploded in popularity recently despite a tiny budget, pulling a strong mix of next week’s World Cup competitors and young sailors who want to share the same line.  The US team didn’t enter, though after Miami we have high hopes for them at next week’s event, and French and British sailors dominated the event with Spain taking some scalps as well, most notably in the 30-boat Nacra 17 class.  Full results here.

In other Palma news, the World Cup re-branding continues to prove how incompetent ISAF can be, with costs continuing to explode, still more format changes for seemingly every event, and dismal worldwide interest except in a few sailing-crazed nations.  To make matters worse, most of the live coverage from Palma promised to the public is now gone along with title sponsor MAPFRE; the Spanish company chose to spend their millions on a new Volvo Ocean Race campaign rather than throwing good money after bad on a dinghy regatta with a comparatively tiny ROI.   This is the last year of the Palma event’s contract with sailing’s international overlords, and if the island still has to come up with the money that ISAF wants to remain part of the ‘World Cup” for 2015, our sources tell us the awesome Mediterranean venue will be out of the running.  Frankly, as great a venue and event as the Palma regatta is, we’d be surprised if the event isn’t just as big without ISAF as it is with them.

Thanks to one of Europe’s best sailing photographers – Spain’s Jesùs Renedo – for the shot of the wonderful Martine, and get over to her campaign’s Facebook page for more info.
