Over five days of intense racing, sailors will battle for a place in the top 10 and a chance to compete in the intense Medal Races Series on August 2.

Each athlete will be pushed to their limits across three demanding race formats:


Sprint Slalom: An electrifying 4-to-7-minutes race where all competitors will race simultaneously on a downwind course, testing their skill and speed.

Course Racing: A tactical 16-to-23-minutes Upwind-Downwind challenge requiring sailors to navigate the day's weather, sea conditions, and the unique site effects of the bay.

Marathon: A tough 60-to-90-minutes endurance race, where athletes will fly from the Olympic Marina to the Frioul islands and from the entrance of the Calanques to the Corniche.


The top 10 will then advance to the Medal Races Series, promising a breathtaking Quarter, Semi and Grand Final.



Athletes are acclimating to the race site, taking full advantage of the Olympic Marina's 'Soft Opening' from June 17 to July 12. This period is a crucial opportunity for competitors to familiarize themselves with the venue's key locations, fine-tune their equipment, and study the intricate wind conditions of the Bay of Marseille.

It's a gradual but essential process, helping them prepare for what will undoubtedly be the most important competition of their lives.
