This is the weekly Sailing highlights show, The World on Water, July 08, 2022. The Superyacht Cup Palma 2022, got off to a flying start with a quartet of J Class yachts, conducting a superb symphony of sail racing, out on the sparkling waters of the Bay of Palma, to launch the latest edition of Europe's longest-running superyacht regatta. Day 2’s finish of the first race of the 2022 ORC World Championship, has not only put results on the scoreboards of the three classes racing at this event, but also given the participants a full experience of all race conditions offered here in northern Sardinia.   British Olympic Sailing Coach, Jon Emmett, was at Kiel Week and he spoke to ILCA 6 Gold Medal Winner Mara Stransky of Australia and ILCA 7 sailor Kaarle Tapper of Finland. Njörðr, the Norse god of the sea and the wind was clearly smiling upon both the 44Cup Marstrand, and local team Artemis Racing, for the first day of the 2022 44Cup’s third event, off western Sweden’s holiday hot spot of Marstrand. New Zealand Race Day at the Superyacht Cup Palma Some big changes in fortune, along with a change in wind direction, saw results in the Superyacht Cup Palma fleet set the scene for a winner-takes-all finale after a day of frenetic activity out on the Bay of Palma. The Corinthian Yacht Club National Women's Invitational Team Race for the Thayer Trophy, the US's only 3 against 3 women's team racing regatta, in keelboats with spinnakers, took place  in the waters off historic Marblehead Massachusetts, with six teams going head-to-head in two days of tough competition and challenging wind conditions. From south-westerly winds gusting up to 20 knots, and one of the sharpest sea states the class has endured, dropping to five to six knots, and the lightest conditions sailable by the nimble RC 44, the 44Cu Marstrand's, penultimate day, provided a complete test for the teams off west Sweden’s holiday hot spot. The World on Water's Christophe Favreaux talked to Sailing Week's Founder and President, Luca Rizzotti, at this year's Sailing Week about his new project, "The Sailing Youth Series" in conjunction with the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Just one race was sailed on the fourth day of the 2022 5.5 Meter World Championship at Hankø Yacht Club in Norway. The win went to Jean Genie,  who put on a dominate display in the tough conditions.    In a testing final day amid challenging conditions the ultimate outcome of the 2022 Superyacht Cup Palma could not possibly have been closer. The destination of the overall Superyacht Cup Palma Trophy remained in doubt until the end of the Saint Regis Race Day, with the end result only decided on count back.
