When normally consistent summer weather turns shitty for days on end, when your Race Officer has a heart attack two weeks before the biggest event in club history, when the breeze you do get seems to always line up directly against the biggest tide of the month, and when a major international news team runs over the double world champion in a RIB, what the hell do you do?
You thank your lucky stars you have this guy running the show. Meet retired Royal Australian Navy Commander Peter Osbourne, and listen to how an expert talks to the press when things go wrong. Seriously – everyone in race management or event PR should watch this video, and learn.
Nice work from Petey Crawford on the two-cam shoot.
