The Australian National Maritime Museum’s is excited to be counting down to 23 May when its iconic 1,700 square metre roof will transform into an underwater wonderland in Aquatic nights during Vivid Sydney June 2014.

To complement its Whale Season, the Aquatic nights rooftop projection and soundtrack will take inspiration from marine environments. Audiences will experience the majesty of ocean life in all its forms from graceful whales to playful dolphins and mysterious creatures of the deep.

Set to an aquatic-inspired soundtrack the roof will pulse to the ebb and flow of ocean currents. This thought-provoking spectacle demonstrates the diversity of our amazing oceans and how we interact with this incredible eco-system.

Created by The Electric Canvas the Aquatic Nights roof projection will premiere on 23 May 2014, and run nightly from 6pm – 11pm until 9 June 2014 with synced audio across Pyrmont Bridge.

Vivid Sydney goers are also invited to kick back and enjoy a program of free live music and DJs on selected weekend evenings during the festival when its waterside café, Yots, will transform into an aquatic inspired pop up bar serving tapas. The line up includes bands and DJs such as rock-pop four piece The Maze, funk/reggae powerhouse Tommy M and the Mastersounds, one of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters Neil Murray and club DJ sensation I Am Sam.

Aquatic Nights is inspired by the museum’s Whale Season featuring two major international exhibitions. Amazing Whales - Evolution and survival from Paris immerses visitors in the world of whales and highlights the importance of conservation to their future survival and Beautiful whale – life-size photography by Bryant Austin is a remarkable photographic exhibition where visitors come face-to-face with giant underwater images of whales at sea.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
