Olympics "DMKO": WS releases a video explaining the "Double-handed, Mixed-Gender, Keelboat Offshore," the new Olympic sailing event for 2024; to put it politely, the reviews have been mixed; your thoughts?
SAN FRANCISCO (#1193) — Using the Olympics for the first time as a regatta to test a new yacht racing event/format that we call "DMKO" for short, World Sailing has released an "explainer" video. It has received largely and surprisingly, even to your Ed., caustic comments on Facebook, YouTube and elsewhere. Join us on today's TFE LIVE and give us your comments — on both the event and the video. As always on our Sailing Illustrated Facebook page at 1300 Pacific / 2000 UTC, or watch a replay there afterwards.
