Vision, images, voice and words. Last night we posted news from Sail-World NZL’s Richard Gladwell’s coverage of the launch of the newest America’s Cup boat NZL-92.
Online news is becoming multi-dimensional. You can read about it, look at the pictures or watch the launch vision online now, provided. As broadband continues to spread and get faster, news and information from the sailing scene will get faster and faster.
This southern hemisphere summer will see a string of firsts as Sail-World brings new technology to your screen.
Our advertisers list continues to grow. This week we welcome Peter Goldsworthy’s Getaway-sailing.com
The Getaway-sailing.com Volvo 60 will be racing in the Hempel Paints Gosford to Lord Howe Race next week and we look forward to bringing mid-race news and images from the fleet.
The Australian Navy’s friend Tony Bullimore is headed this way in an attempt to break Dame Ellen’s Round the World record. He will start off Hobart and hopefully complete his circumnavigation in less than 70 days.
Check back later in the day. In a few hours, we will see the start of the HSBC Coastal Classic from Auckland and the battle of the 50 footers looks like it will be very interesting.
