World Sailing's eSailing World Championship Final and the eSailing Nations Cup Final will be broadcast live on the Olympic Channel and across World Sailing's channels on 6 and 7 November.

On Friday 6 November, Great Britain and Spain will go head-to-head in the inaugural eSailing Nations Cup Final starting at 21:00 UTC.

Great Britain captain, Mike O'Donovan, and Spain captain, Carlos Paz, will lead their teams of ten in a best-of-nine race series. Different classes, fleet sizes and racecourses will be used to test the teams' depth and performance, with the best all-round team claiming the title of best eSailing nation.

The third eSailing World Championship Final will commence at 21:00 UTC on Saturday 7 November. The top eight qualifiers plus the eSailGP champion will compete in a seven-race format, which concludes with a deciding Medal Race.

Both Finals will be streamed live on the Olympic Channel and across World Sailing's channels.

Scott Over, World Sailing's Commercial Director, commented, "We are delighted to receive the support of the Olympic Channel to broadcast two huge eSailing events this coming weekend. Participation and engagement within the eSailing community continues to grow.

"We believe we are the first eSport to be broadcast live on the Olympic Channel and their support marks another positive step forward for the global awareness of eSailing."

Philippe Guige, Founder and CEO of Virtual Regatta, World Sailing's eSailing Partner, commented, "Through our partnership with World Sailing, the global presence of eSailing continues to expand and grow each month. We are excited to be working with World Sailing to bring the eSailing World Championship and Nations Cup Final to the Olympic Channel and showcasing the discipline to their global community of sports fans."
