Sure it's not the only game in town - there's the Weymouth and Portland International Regatta, the RS Feva Worlds and a little closer to home the SMU-RM Western Circuit Regatta in Singapore. But for sure there's going to be a lot of attention paid to the opening event of the AC World Series, in Cascais. Maybe the racing will look something similar to an Extreme 40 event, but for sure the sheer quantity of broadcast and coverage technology being brought to bear is going to grab some headlines. Does it work? Watch, and find out.
