The main feature of the March episode of the World Sailing Show returns to the Canary Islands for the Lanzarote International Regatta where 360 sailors from six classes took to the water for eight days of races.

Big winds, even bigger waves and constant rolling ocean swell made for interesting conditions, and if that wasn't enough of a challenge then dust storms from the Sahara took it to the next level just in time for the medal races.

Also encountering extreme conditions were the crews of SailGP Sydney. What was supposed to be champagne sailing in Sydney Harbour was blighted by technical issues and turbulent storms which saw drama on and off the water. The only day of racing belonged to France, and after being forced to cut the event short, the crews will be looking to recover ahead of the next round in New Zealand later this month.

World Sailing's global women's sailing festival, Steering the Course, is back for 2023. The World Sailing Show heads to Rio de Janeiro for Brazil's first all-female coaching course where 15 women from across the country came together for five days to develop their coaching techniques, learn from each other both on and off the water, and show what is possible for sailing in Brazil.

Elsewhere, there is an in depth look at the 14th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 where 70 boats and 600 sailors from 30 countries embarked upon a 600 nautical mile sprint around the islands of Antigua, St Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla, Montserrat and Guadeloupe before finishing back in Antigua. After 31 hours of racing, the first pair home were separated by just 11 seconds. Racers continued to arrive over the next day with only three non-finishers and are already looking forward to the next edition in February.

There is also a round up from the world of sailing including the second in-port race of The Ocean Race in Cape Town, German boat builders Greenboats receive their 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award, iQFOiL World Series heads to Miyake-jima Island in Japan, the 44 Cup kicks off in Muscat, and the second event in the GKA Kite World Tour heads to Salinas Del Rey, Colombia.

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.
