The bumper end-of-year December 2022 episode of the World Sailing show leads with an in-depth preview of The Ocean Race, which gets under way on 15 January 2023 in Alicante, Spain.

Following a nine-stop route, the new-look event will round Africa's southernmost point before crossing the Pacific, navigating up the eastern seaboard of the United States to cross the Atlantic and returning to Europe after more than six months at sea.

Other highlights include:

  • Emirates Team New Zealand setting new land speed record pace
  • A look back at a record-breaking year for Para Sailing
  • A round up of the year's biggest events across all classes around the globe
There is a special look at the growth of Para Sailing this year as World Sailing and the sailors around the world eagerly await the International Paralympic Committee's decision on whether the sport is reinstated to the LA28 Paralympic Games.

Elsewhere, the show catches up with 37th America's Cup preparations where Emirates Team New Zealand pilot Glenn Ashby has just sailed the land yacht Horonuku faster than any previous records, clocking a phenomenal 222.4kph.

There are also recaps of an eventful year on the water with the key moments in the Princess Sofía Regatta, Sailing World Cup, the GKA Kite Big Air World Championships, SailGP Season 2 finale, and much more.

Produced by Sunset+Vine and released every month, the World Sailing Show shares the latest news, events and captivating stories from across the sport with audiences around the world. Each episode is available to watch for free on the World Sailing YouTube channel.
