Daniel Forster will provide daily photo galleries on the NYYC Invitational Cup website as well as at RegattaNews.
For 2013, the Invitational Cup has selected Virtual Eye to bring the event closer to everyone. Virtual Eye was born during the 1992 America’s Cup and has realistic 3D animations and the ability to switch between multiple camera angles and display a variety of data for each individual boat, Virtual Eye is the next best thing to watching it live. The player live can be found by clicking here, and will also be available at the NYYC website.
As an enhancement to the Virtual Eye tracking, live audio commentary will be provided by the New York Yacht Club’s sailing director—and America’s Cup umpire—Brad Dellenbaugh and Sail Newport Executive Director and former J/24 World Champion Brad Read. Flanking the fleet on Zodiacs, they will provide their perspective of the racing as well as insight into one-design tactics. In addition to live streaming, this audio will be available via VHF (channel to be determined) for spectators watching the racing from the water. The live audio can be found by clicking here, and will also be available at the NYYC website.
The t2p.tv video team will be on hand to film the event, providing daily wrap-up videos that will include onboard footage and post-race interviews. The daily video will be available at the NYYC website.
