2023 ESAILING WORLD CHAMPION TO BE DECIDED AT LIVE FINAL
AS A PART OF 55TH BARCOLANA REGATTA
Eleven of the world’s best eSailors from six countries – including three-time 49er world champion Bart Lambriex – will battle it out in a live final of the 2023 eSailing World Championships and a grand prize of $10,000 USD courtesy of Virtual Regatta.
The eSailing World Championship Grand Final will be streamed live on the World Sailing YouTube channel from 3pm UTC on 6 October 2023.
Dutchman Lambriex, who finished third last year, will be looking to add the eSailing crown to the 49er title he won in August’s Allianz Sailing World Championships. But Lambriex is just one of a high-quality field which also includes defending champion Alexandre Kowalski of France, Great Britain’s Arthur Farley, who was second last year, and 2023 Olympic Esports Series winner Tim Carpentier, who is one of four French eSailors in the final.
Each player has competed in a season-long campaign beginning in January where thousands of players from around the world took part in three stages. Competition was whittled down through more than 63,000 races across 32 challenges to leave just 11 remaining.
Each player must complete across a variety of races using Star, Nacra 17, Laser, J70, 49er and F50 boats, with the final race worth double points to take home the title.
