Filming of S80 Promo Gets Underway this Saturday 30th January


We are very pleased to have the support and direction of Jonny Fullerton of Grand Prix Sailing. Jonny is a respected International sailing journalist and film maker.

In conjunction with Jonny, we have engaged John & Collette Gibbons of Skyworks here to take on-water film and Drone footage of the fleet commencing Saturday afternoon.

[31/1/16 update : Due to weather conditions, filming of the fleet was postponed for another day to be confirmed]


It would be really great if we could get a maximum number of boats out and put on a real show. So please turn up, put on your best smiles for the camera’s and look like you are having fun.


This will be followed in a few day's time with recording of interview footage with a selection of photogenic skippers and crew.
