  1. I once sold a Laser for more than I bought it... and a Spiral.... The 470 on the other hand......
  2. Yes all about to change here in Malta. At the YC waiting for Rambler to finish. Have been putting up daily recaps/reports, yesterday's while sailing myself - been a bit of a wait
  3. Smashed my phone screen when I was packing the container after my worlds on Saturday. Far out!! Worst typo ever - like when Carrie Bickmore said Qantas incorrectly :p Screen is fixed now - went straight to the shop when I saw that! Will try touch base with PRB. They are here in the Village. Was live for Multi line honours, Rambler over the line, George David on shore, Scallywag finish and Wizard finish. Just interviewed Sehested as the Polish Volvo arrived. Cheers - SG x
  4. Just less likely to get drone clearance when the air is full of major broadcast helicopters. Trust me - I tried this year to get a drone up....
  5. I need airfares, accomm, my manager to say yes, a sponsor and a shirt
  6. At media briefings and at the race briefing we are told no live vision of anything to do with “racing” from the moment we are on the water at midday, through until 3pm.
  7. Sorry if I didn’t read properly. Also hard now as sharing information or advice on plans probably means that it will get taken off me and produced in house, like on the Big Boat Day, and now with the finish.... Our info is our only IP really, and the CYC is on a path to use their internal staff to replicate what they pick and choose alongside 7’s coverage.
  8. Not possible because of the below. I am not able to stream ANY moving pictures live and there is an embargo until two hours after the start. All above is completely correct, but the 7 copyright only covers the start. If you knew the full deal you would be as horrified as I am. Why I said above that I need your support while I am half in and half out so to speak. There is no way around it in the short term but to work with them.
  9. I have done just that before the start every year for the past seven........ The CYCA signed some sort of agreement for all visual rights about 12 years ago......... I risk getting sued going against them so I need the CYCA to get themselves out before I can do anything.... But yes letter stating that I should be doing more are helpful! The CYCA think they did a good job on social media this year, which they did..... but there is good/ok and great... so saying to do more social isn’t enough, they need someone who knows that they are doing thanks - doing what I c
  10. I laughed out loud to the Clean comment. People are staring!! Wherever you are Clean !!!? I am sure you have way better things to do!
  11. Ps apologies for the massive post above but it was 30+ pages!!!!
  12. Agreed. I am working on my debrief for the CYC and my plan for next year now (whether that will be with the organisers depends on them letting me do it a little bit my own way too). I am putting together my feedback, and bits and pieces of the constructive stuff I have read here and in my comments/messages. Hey we are all thinking it - but I really am trying to action it! Lots of words and comments are one thing, actually working with the organisers to try make it better is another - and I am doing the best I can in that regard. Yeah... I was on the ground for 60 events last year. 50
  13. I just got to the end of the thread So here goes! Awesome work firstly by anyone who called the IB 60 over the 52 on IRC. One of my favourite interviews was with Winning Appliances, which I haven't seen here... I know right???!! To be clear for the start, I have never brought vision from on the water... Only audio. This year I wanted to make more of a point of not being able to bring vision, and was lucky enough to have a spot with the ABC, which they let me stream and bring to you in vision as well. Was pretty cool to be able to share sailing with t
  14. I'm up to page 31 in the main thread. More "criticism" from @random and @despacio avenue - man I love my job Thanks for the back up guys - I do take it all on board, because you can always learn something. This year, and this event, in particular more than any other (and yes I did 60 last year), is so bloody tough politically and in terms of rights.
  15. Thanks mate. I have to say there have been a few days recently where I have almost called it. BUT - I just love sailing, and sailors way too much it seems. Hopefully I will be around for a while, you guys - the audience, and sponsors pending
  16. Oh please that would be such sweet bliss. I am in the process of replying to the main thread, up to page 21........
  17. Ha - love it. And I don't think there will be a Zhik cap even on myself for a while. PS - onto page 21 of the main feed. Pissing my self laughing at the chat between you and inebriated. Gold. I always read the threads, have been sailorgirl on SA since just after I started my blog... 2005 circa... and I always find time to reply. During a race is just not the time - I have shit to do. Thanks for re-wording your feedback, always happy to take constructive criticism on the chin. Will keep it in mind for my next interviews, hopefully you can also keep your feedback to constructive in natu
  18. I was waiting for it for sure. Was the best place to be. Is always good going live as well, captures the essence of it all. Have had a few directed at me, there is one above in this thread, got my most recent via email a few hours ago. Seems to be part of the job now. Which is definitely sad, and not what I thought was going to be part of the deal with next to no pay, and no social life but hey, as I said, lucky I am tougher than most realise.
  19. I like this thread better than the 2018 one. Read the whole thing in under 10 minutes
  20. Yeah this thread is pretty good. As I said above, I have them in my inbox and in person now, I don't have to go far The other thread is another story, dealt with this one first! I am happy for the questions, and to be accountable, which is why I read these threads, as much as my family and friends hate me doing it!
  21. Ok I am now caught up on this thread. Yes I went live - first actually - with the news direct from Shipwright Arms where WOXI were having lunch in one room, and BJ in the other. Was the best place to be given that there is no way I could have gotten in the protest room, and there was nothing to say until there was a result. Here is where I interviewed BJ on arrival and yes Harburg told me about the AIS: Thanks for understanding that. Regardless, I did what I could, more than most, I appreciate your support @Maw and others who have had my back x They did shar
  22. Still digesting everything, giving myself some time to breathe and catching up on sleep. Will come back to the good (and bad) within this thread when I can
