iShares Cup Extreme 40 series on TV

Extreme 40’s provide plenty of action on their race circuits Extreme40 .org http://www.extreme40.org

Filmed, produced and directed by sports TV specialists Sunset&Vine|APP, the iShares Cup Extreme 40 six-part TV series is hitting TV screens around the world over the coming weeks.

Programme 1 will air for the first time in the UK on Setanta Sport on 5 July and on Sky Sport on 11 July. In Ireland the programme can be seen on Sky Sport on 11 July and in France, the first show goes out today on Sport+.

Sky New Zealand will be airing the first episode on 8 July and Sun Sport Florida in the USA has already shown the first show.

So far, 11 broadcasters around the world have chosen to broadcast the iShares Cup TV series covering the UK, France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, USA, Australia, New Zealand, the pan-African regions, Middle East, pan-Scandinavia, Finland and the Baltics.

Programme 1 covers the first round of the iShares Cup that took place on Lake Lugano on the Swiss/Italian border. The action kicked off immediately, in the first race of the first day as America's Cup defenders Alinghi capsized in dramatic style after being caught out by a severe squall that ripped through the fleet in seconds.

In Programme 2, the iShares Cup circuit moved on to Hyères in France. The infamous Mistral ensured racing was testing for the crews and exciting for the spectators. There was plenty action, including a spectacular pitch-pole by American team Tommy Hilfiger.

But it was Ed Baird and the Alinghi crew who fought off a strong challenge from 2007 iShares Cup defending champions, Rob Greenhalgh and crew on Team Origin, and went on to make a great come back.
