Interesting too to contemplate that Rise and Rise of China, who are impressing on the RS: X scene, while they will be gaining more VOR experience aboard. With ever growing interest at media level, the Chinese push into sailing continues to grow. By the time of the 2020 Olympics in Japan, they could be a very serious player.

Now as the summer holidays roll in so do the Nationals and state titles in a host of events, make sure your publicity officer is poised ready to send news to Sail-World.com
