Yacht Sailing Races to Participate in California

California is a place where people love to go for sailing races. There are four main points in California where offshore sailing races happen, but the sailors can go only in one direction. They get hit by land on the eastern side and experience the nastiness of the weather on the west. On the other hand, when the sailors try to go to the north, they get upwind. Going towards the south direction can be a no-brainer for them.

Whenever any sailor, whether experienced or inexperienced stands in California, they think of the comfort index before everything else which they can find on the southern side. And if someone really moves towards the south, then the condition becomes even better for the sailors.

Gamagori Japan Sailing Venue

The World Cup Series that recently concluded in Japan was one of the Olympic events out of eight ones planned for Gamagori. The Men’s Skiff or the 49er was sent out on the day when there was no wind. However the conditions were not enough in a competitive race to be held. The scores hence remained the same after on day two as from the first day. This series in Japan suffered due to fickle winds. Gamagori is a coastal city that has about 80,000 people as its population. It has been suffering bad weather for quite some time.


Local sailors attribute the fickle wind conditions to the reason being between seasons. They state that this time of year is usually warm, but this year the current conditions have been different. Many local Japanese sailors were optimistic to sail in this venue and were hopeful to showcase some good achievements during the event.

Many were happy that outsiders were coming in to compete in this international event and getting to experience the local water conditions here. As the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games preparations are underway, this event will certainly give many a chance to acclimatize themselves to the waters by the coastlines of Japan. For the Japanese sailors it is also important that they get practice to compete with international teams over the three years that will lead to the next Olympic Games. There is a new sailing facility that has been built that is state of the art and where an international tournament called Tasar World Championships was held from 30th July to 6th August 2017.

Gamagori is being promoted as a sailing venue in Japan through Enoshima is the chosen venue for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Davidson’s View Of Competitive Sailing

A designer syndicate which is based in New Zealand is hoping for a return to the old sailing styles when the Auld Mug is held here in 2021, the predetermined 36th edition of the America’s Cup.
One of the pioneers of the old style of sailing is Laurie Davidson. He retired while being at the pinnacle of the sport. However, at the present age of ninety he stays abreast of the advances the sport has made, from boats with keels to catamarans that run on foiling technology.

Davidson currently lives in his home in Long Bay from where he can look out at the Hauraki Gulf. This is the location where the sport will see one of the oldest international trophy events being held, likely in a period of four years. His home has a coffee table that has nautical tomes. Even at ninety he has a sharp mind that understands the way the Emirates Team New Zealand has been operating in their latest yachting tournaments. Davidson made some commendable designs such as Black Magic NZL 32 which won in the San Diego sailing event held in 1995. It also helped team New Zealand to defend the trophy they acquired in 2000.
