AC34 accolades and ISAF updates—Sailing news from the U.S. and beyond

The 34th America’s Cup may have foiled its way into the history books, but there are still plums to be savored, namely mainstream recognition for the impressive broadcast work that was enjoyed by fans around the world. News recently broke that AC34’s media broadcasts have received five Emmy Award nominations, including one for Outstanding Live Sports Special. These new nominations follow the previous news of an Emmy Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement that the event received for AC LiveLine.

'When we started planning for the 34th America’s Cup in 2010, one of the initial priorities was to create an exciting television experience for viewers,' said Stan Honey, Director of Technology for AC34. 'These nominations from the media production of the America’s Cup in 2013 are a clear signal that the America’s Cup is now being recognized as a compelling television sport.'

And in Southern California, the racing action has been intense at the Farr 40 Midwinters (March 26-29), which are being hosted by the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club in San Pedro. According to reports, the 16-boat fleet got off to a rocking-good start in 16-18 knots of breeze.

'It was a great day on the water,' said Kevin McNeil, skipper of 'Nightshift'. 'It was really blowing out there so it was a challenge. It's all about preparation and crew work. We spent four days tuning up before the regatta and that made all the difference.' Get the full report from the Farr 40 Midwinters, inside this issue.
