Sail for Gold 2011

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston is at The Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy while Tracey Clarke looks after matters in the studio.

As Sail for Gold comes to a close, Sir Robin talks to those responsible for staging the international regatta.

Also this week, Shelley Jory-Leigh returns to powerboat racing as the Superstock season starts in Jersey and Neil Sackley takes a ride in one of the competition boats.

Tracey looks ahead to the international SeaWork exhibition which opens next week in Southampton.

And our series looking ahead to the 80th anniversary of the Round the Island race continues as Neil takes a spin on L’Hydroptere which is hoping to break the multihull course record during this month’s race.

Plus Alexis Green has the detailed weekend sailing forecast.

The Solent is famous for its rich maritime heritage and the H2O Show covers all aspects of life on the water - leisure, business and sport. Whether you're a sailing professional or just like watching the boats go by on the Solent, the programme will have something to appeal to you.

The H2O Show is also available as a podcast and you can get news and features from the programme on Facebook and via Twitter.
