July's episode of the World Sailing Show catches up with the Dutch sailing team ahead of the Allianz Sailing World Championships, The Hague, in August and finds out the secrets to their recent success.

After winning four of the six classes at the World Cup in Almere, and following success at Tokyo 2020, the Dutch team continue to push each other, learn and will be looking to replicate these achievements at the Allianz Sailing World Championships, The Hague - and then at Paris 2024.

The World Sailing Show also visits The Ocean Race as the fleet leave Aarhus in an 800-mile sprint to The Hague, The Netherlands, with competition for places heating up ahead of the final race to Genoa. It was 11th Hour Racing who triumphed, winning a third successive leg ahead of Holcim, with WindWhisper opening up an unassailable lead in the Sprint Trophy.

The next leg didn't start as hoped for by either 11th Hour Racing or Guyot environment - Team Europe, with a collision just out of port forcing both to return for repairs. Team Jajo faced a surprising collision of another sort as a pod of orcas got too close for comfort. 11th Hour Racing recovered after an appeal for redress and sailed into Genoa with a narrow lead, sealing victory and becoming the first US-flagged team to win The Ocean Race.

The fleet of the 70th Rolex Giraglia in Saint-Tropez also features as they race to Genoa. There are interviews with the winners after late drama saw the leaderboard shift on correction.

Elsewhere, Foiling Week celebrates a decade on the waters of Lake Garda with a special exhibition highlighting the event's commitment to innovation, new technologies and a celebration of all ten foiling classes.

The World Sailing Show also heads to Chicago for the first round of SailGP Season 4. Team Australia were looking to start strongly but it was their Kiwi rivals who took maximum points in the winner-takes-all Final.

Produced 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.
