Post of the Week
We have always found Gary Jobson to be highly overrated as a TV commentator for this sport. ESPN ran a documentary created by Jobson about the 100th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac. Apparently it wasn’t very interesting and anarchist lakepirate weighed in with this:
Saw it yesterday, watched it because it was on TV and about sailing, was just about what I expected, boooooring.
There is absolutely no way this would get people into the sport. Not sure if it was due to the race being slow, the choice of which boats to put cameras on, or the editing, but any and all personality was drained from the racing.
