The World Sailing Show - July 2016:

With over 1,500 entries and 16,000 sailors the annual Round the Island Race is a spectacle.

But this year’s race was particularly special for one team that smashed race record – The World Sailing Show has the story and footage of the record breaking run. As the Games gets within striking distance, a new type of pressure is building for the competitors. We talk to the man they call the medal maker along with the British Olympic Sailing Team manager about the mental pressure of the Games.

Sailing with a sibling might not seem to be the perfect match, but two Chilean brother and sister pairings will be heading to the Games for a family affair in Rio. And Andy Rice explains why this Olympic class is so popular, yet so hard to sail well. Plus, news from around the world.
