As one of the loudest supporters of the Volvo Ocean Race’s continuing effort to get more women aboard the world’s leading crewed ocean race,  we’re extremely happy to see long-time SA contributor Jen Edney on the Volvo Ocean Race’s OBR squad.  But as you’ll see from the above shot, Mark Turner’s media team has completely failed at getting even a modicum of gender parity to the On-Board Reporter job.

What makes it even more odd is the frequency with which the VOR mentions the ‘10,000 ultra-highly qualified applications’ they received for the job. We ask Mark Turner directly: Does this mean that there was only 1 woman out of 10,000 qualified to do the job?  And why do you bother pushing the teams towards bringing female sailors aboard when you can’t even do the same thing for your own OBR crew?

Videographer Stan Thuret gives us this 2 minute tease of a longer NY-Vendee Race movie to come in a couple of weeks.  Pretty stuff from a pretty old boat and an Anarchist skipper we really dig.

Spotty management and bizarre decisionmaking may have marred the history of the Volvo Ocean Race’s On-Board Reporter (née MCM) program, but there’s no disputing that the decision to bring specialist media crews on board for the world’s biggest ocean race was a landmark one.  Everything from the Vendee Globe to the Sydney Hobart Race to the America’s Cup has felt the influence of the program, especially as guys like Matt Knighton, Amory Ross, Brian Carlin, and Sam Greenfield have brought their training and experiences from the VOR into other forms of racing.

After three mistake-filled editions of the program, the 2017 version looks to finally reach maturity under the umbrella of progressive new CEO Mark Turner , especially if the VOR hangs onto some of the more crucial management players in the last race – guys like the indomitable Mark Covell and TV boss Leon Sefton – and embraces the vast changes to the media landscape over the past five years.  The next edition will mark great leaps forward in both the distribution of content from on board and the technology employed to capture it, and you have a chance to shape it.

We like the campaign the VOR just launched to get new blood into the OBR spot – called #ifyoudiedtomorrow, it’s pretty compelling shit.  Given the dominance of SA’ers in OBR spots during the past couple of editions, you guys have a great shot at getting in, so watch the video and get your CV together, and let us know if you do put together something awesome for the VOR choosers.
