Let us begin this month’s episode by visiting Greece and the beautiful city of Thessaloniki, which played host to the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 European Championships. Just a few weeks after the Tokyo Olympics, it was time for the European champions to be crowned at the Nautical Club of Thessaloniki, beginning a new Olympic Cycle that will lead them to Paris 2024.

A couple of months after the European Championships, it was time for the World Champions to be crowned in the pinnacle event for these classes. Oman acted as the home for the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 World Championships. The level of excitement was massive as it was the first big, world event following the Tokyo Olympics. 

Next, we stay in Oman for the country’s premier offshore race. Sailing Arabia – The Tour returned in 2021 for its 11th edition, with teams representing Oman and Europe racing at four venues along the nation's coastline in a combination of coastal raids and in-port races.

Finally, we return to Greece once more. The highly anticipated Hellenic Match Racing Tour returned in 2021 for its 7th edition. Eight of the best Greek crews gathered in the Yacht Club of Greece for a three-day event that would showcase the country’s sailing dynamics at its finest. Match racing has always been a format that creates extremely competitive races and nail-biting conclusions. This year, the crews were more than ready for the challenge.
