In total, in the two races, four continents are represented - America, Europe, Asia and Oceania - in a total of 15 nationalities will sail in the bay of Cascais.

These two events that precede the Tokyo Olympic Games and have the support of the Turismo de Portugal, Visit Cascais, Cascais Town Hall, Cascais Marina and Vista Alegre.
