In addition to the dates already set, there are also some big confirmations for these races. The Spanish boat of Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barcelo, 2020 49erFx World champions, the Brazilian boat of Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze, Rio 2016 Gold, the Dutch boat helmed by Annemiek Bekkering and Annette Duetz, 49erFx World champions 2018 and 2019 and, still, the Americans Stephanie Roble and Margaret Shea, bronze in the 49erFx World Championship and a promising team from Singapore but resident in Cascais, of Kimberly Lim and Cecilia Low, are some of the vessels that have already confirmed that they will compete in Portuguese waters.

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.
