A glorious day on the Gold Coast, its bump in time at Sanctuary Cove. The TetraMedia team is here in force, with eight videographers, journalists and photographers. We will all be based on Booth 40 in the MarineBusiness-World pavilion, the giant hall you first enter into the show, we are next to RFD.

Our emphasis is on video, as you will increasingly see. Some have already seen our Video gallery on the top navigation on Sail-World and over the next four days you will see lots of interviews from here.

Looking at video, catch the interview with Nathan Outteridge at the SB3 Worlds.

If you have an iPhone, you MUST get the Grog's animated knots app. We love it, this week we will be publishing an interview we did with Grog himself .....
