This is sailing's Premier League . . .
200 Olympic-class sailors compete annually on West Kirby’s marine amphitheatre in one of the World’s favourite events for three days in May.
Five thousand spectators and thousands on the web follow 300 short, sharp frenzied races in three-boat teams jostling on an area of a football field to earn the coveted title: "Wilson Trophy Champion".
For this is team racing; this is the balletic cousin of a venerable sport.
Frantic and frenetic, the sailors spin breath-taking skills caressing their boats through a needle's eye within a hair’s breadth of touching at grand-prix speeds.
All powered by nature’ s winds and the will-to-win. Right in front of your eyes.
