Sailing Anarchy Senior Editor Mr. Clean finally tracked down double gold medalist Malcolm Page, the new spokesman and Chief Marketing Officer of World Sailing, to get the inside story on all the controversies piling up in ISAF’s inbox.  Page didn’t always give a complete answer but he didn’t back down, and a 20 minute chat turned into nearly an hour-long interview on the lawn at Coral Reef Yacht Club.  Want to know the latest directly from ISAF/WS about the Israel visa scandal and World Sailing’s response?  How about the name change?  Rio pollution, the loss of spectator stands, the Zika virus, the million-dollar-a-year World Sailing TV plan, and watching the Olympics?  It’s all here, along with much more.  Rather than take the time to mix the video with the audio, we’re presenting this one as an audio-only podcast; you can listen above or download it for later from Mixcloud.

NOTE: Those of you looking to watch the live broadcast of the Miami medal races on Saturday need to either get a VPN or make sure your cable includes ESPN.  Contrary to what Mal told us during the interview, the live stream is NOT available in the US unless you have pay TV, but strangely, it’s not even on pay TV – it’s only available through online broadcaster ESPN3.  So the first shot at livestreaming this cycle in the USA begins with a non-measurable, highly restrictive internet broadcast that seems likely to reach a few thousand people at best.

Not a great start to the brilliant World Sailing TV plan to take over the world, but that’s what happens when you pay a 65-year old man to distribute your media in 2016…
