A New View
It’s not easy to get a good view into the world of big dinghy regattas. There’s very little coverage of most major events, and when we do see video, it’s generally short, YouTube-ized stuff that may look good, but rarely does it inform.
So it’s good to see a new look from a new company, in this case from Icarus Sailing Media, which is producing feature-rich broadcasts from various Olympic and Junior Olympic regattas. This one is from last month’s Junior Olympic European Qualifier from Imperia, Italy, and provides a half hour of narrated action, interviews, and computer simulations. It ain’t perfect, but it’s more complete than anything we’ve seen in a while, and we hope these guys stick with it.
