Xmas Day Racing Fix

If you are one of those sailors who are always complaining that our sport doesn't get enough media coverage, then I have a Xmas present for you. Sail-world.com will be providing three hours of live streaming audio coverage on the web of the start of the Sydney Hobart Race. The broadcast will run from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm Eastern Summer Time (Australia) on December 26th. If my calculations at time and date.com are correct, this translates to 7:30pm EDT on December 25th in the Eastern US.

So give the kids their presents on Xmas morning, cook and eat your Xmas dinner in plenty of time, then gather the family around the computer for an evening of sailing entertainment.

Cool. Thanks. Will definitely catch that!

Maybe I should buy an A/V output cord for my computer so I can actually watch it on TV.

Don't get too excited litoralis. As my post says, this is only an audio commentary. No video.

What use is that? I am imagining something like horse racing commentary: "The boats are entering the starting area...#242 is heading for the pin but #125 is coming up from the rear. And they're off...#222 has done it again...what a squirrel start!"
