SHOW #126 ISAF Sailing World Championships

 Shirley Robertson goes behind the scenes at the ISAF Sailing World Championships in Santander, Spain. With 1,200 sailors from 81 nations competing across the 10 Olympic classes the event can be bewildering to the uninitiated, but Shirley focuses in on the teams that are likely to shine at the next Olympics in Brazil.

Team Brazil are led by 5-time Olympian Torben Grael. One of his greatest medal hopefuls is his daughter, Martine, while another is 41-year-old Robert Scheidt who, like Grael, has 5 Olympic medals to his name already.

The most successful team at the last Olympics was Australia and Shirley talks to the gold medallist, Nathan Outteridge, who is trying to combine an Olympic bid with an America’s Cup programme, as well as meeting World Sailor of the Year Mat Belcher who is gunning for a 5th straight World Title.
