For the first time in history, Italy will be hosting a World Cup Series regatta. The Italian city of Genoa is preparing to host over 700 sailors between April 15-21 at the 2019 Hempel World Cup Series.

The Fiera di Genova, which hosts the International Boat Show every year, will welcome world-class sailors across eight of the ten Olympic events.

Racing in the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 will commence on Monday, April 15 and conclude on Saturday, April 20. Meanwhile, the 470s, Laser, Laser Radial and Finn will start on Tuesday, April 16 and wrap up on the final Sunday, April 21.

Medal Races on the 20th and 21st will be streamed live on World Sailing's YouTube Channel.

For many athletes pursuing an Olympic campaign, this regatta is an important training opportunity on the track to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. Visit this page throughout the week for daily updates on the U.S. athletes.
