Do you have any idea of how invisible sailing is to the majority of the public? A couple of years ago I had lunch with Russell Coutts, here in Hong Kong. When I casually dropped this epic piece of news in front of a friend later that day, he said, “Russell who?”
During the recent Extreme Sailing Series event in Singapore, the Straits Times ran a big piece – half a page, with photo – of a charity dragon boat race that took place as a sideshow to the main event... and mentioned the Extreme 40s in the last column inch. Same same in Hong Kong – coverage of the Extreme Sailing Series constituted a big picture of Sir Ben Ainslie's boat, a short interview about the next America's Cup, and a two-line mention of the ESS at the end.
Which just goes to prove, if proof were needed, that if you need sailing news and information, then the place to go is www.sail-world.com!
