The problem is that the general media only cover the major pro sports like baseball, nascar, football, etc. sailing, formula 1, world rally etc never gets any mention
It s a real shame because the online coverage is excellent

Should anyone have an interested contact in the sponsoring groups:
There has been an absolute ZERO publicity available in Fort Lauderdale re this event. My St Pete based son called me to speak of the fantastic race coverage then on-going. I had heard nothing-NADA--up to that point. Bad Mistakes by someone.

We passed byf the in port race while on charter this afternoon. We ve been to the village a couple of time this week nice set up but they got a fraction of the crowds they had at other stops.
Very little media coverage... It s a shame because it is a nice event and easy to follow now with technology. Some of the footage is really good and set in daily

The boats are all outfitted with WiFi using a private network to the support vessels. I was following the outfitting of the electronics used for this race some really cutting edge stuff for boating.
