Sail-World New Zealand: 9 August 2011

UKP10,000 fine coming up - a racing vessel collides with the 124,000-ton Hanne Knutsen Cowes Week - 7 August 2011  
Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for 9 August 2011

The Battle of the Events continues with the Extreme Sailing Series in full flight literally in Cowes, Isle of Wight. An Emirates Team NZ crew are struggling to get to the front of the fleet in the fresh winds which are testing even the most experienced crews.

Overnight there was another cartwheel - which took place right in front of the thousands of fans who crammed the Cowes foreshore. We have the video of the incident and also a full sequence of images of the mishap in this edition of Sail-World.

In Cascais, Portugal, the first round of the America's Cup World series is on pause, after the opening two days.

It is hard to tell yet whether this event is really delivering. Certainly those at the event think so - based on really a single day of decent breeze. Emirates Team NZ is leading the points table on the back of the preliminaries, but the the match racing yet to come.

For those offsite, with no public TV broadcast (and therefore no ability to record for those asleep or at work), the only way to see the event is in the very early hours of the morning on a webcast, or via a delayed link to YouTube.com which is available at the viewer's convenience. We have all the replays in this edition of Sail-World.

The quality of this coverage in terms of images and on board audio is very good. The Day 2 coverage is solely onboard - and viewers have the option of either following a feed that is substantially on board with Oracle Racing's Russell Coutts, Murray Jones and friends, or follow the alternate - which takes us on board Emirates Team NZ with Dean Barker and Ray Davies.

All very viewable and the images (HD), and audio are great. But the lack of a quality graphics system, on Day 2 - so the viewer can see where yachts are relative to each other, is a serious shortcoming. This replay version is for the serious sailing fans.

Another big benefit of the replay webcast is that it allows viewers to go on board and hear for themselves how a top professional crew works together - and you couldn't get much better than riding with Coutts and Barker.

Bob Fisher has been fortunate to sail on the back of two of the AC45's and reports from Cascais for Sail-World. The doyen of sailing journalists, has turned into an AC45 junkie, and is now developing a serious habit in Cascais. He'll ride with anyone that has an AC45 - and why not?

In Weymouth the Pre-Olympics are in their early days. There have been some encouraging results for New Zealand's NZL Sailing Team, but there is a long way to go in this regatta. We will be updating daily on www.sail-world.com on this and the other key sailing events around the world and New Zealand.
