First Extreme Sailing Series Programme Broadcast
One event down, four to go until the 2010 Extreme Sailing Series Champions will be crowned in Almería, Andalucía, Spain, but for those that didn’t manage to join the crowds in their thousands in Sète, France for the opening event of the 2010 circuit, they can watch all the action on Bloomberg TV across Europe this weekend, and on Dahlia Sport in Italy.
At 1530 (local) on 26 June (repeated at same time on the 27th) across Europe including UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany, Bloomberg TV will broadcast the first of five programmes about the 2010 circuit. Dahlia Sport in Italy will broadcast at 1925 (local) on 26 June, repeated on the 30th at 2230.
Produced by Sunset&Vine|APP, the programme features all the on-water action which saw Yann Guichard’s Groupe Edmond de Rothschild win the opening event in definite style with one race to spare. A behind the scenes look at the two teams from Oman Sail reveals that despite being the closest of rivals on the water, they share tactics and experience in joint-coaching sessions off the water and how the removal of multihulls from the Olympics has benefitted Mike Golding’s Ecover Sailing Team.
The 25 minute programme will be broadcast internationally across 24 networks, reaching 120 countries in 13 languages. The five-part series will be aired on channels including Sky Sports (UK, New Zealand, Ireland), Sport + (France), Fox Sports (Australia), CNBC (pan-Europe) and Al Jazeera (Middle East) as well as in-flight onboard five airlines including Air France, British Airways and Lufthansa.
