Follow the Action

September 3, 2013


There are a number of ways to follow the RCYC Team at the 2013 Invitational Cup Regatta:

The NYYC Invitational Cup Program
The official NYYC Invitational Cup Program is available for PDF download by clicking here (it is a 30 MB file). The program is full of regatta information and has a great feature on the RCYC Team.

The Schedule pdf from the NYYC can be found by clicking here.

There will be numerous Tweeters in the Twitterverse covering the regatta, 3 we recommend to follow are:
@TeamRCYC: We will be posting via Twitter, follow us and get the latest team updates as well as on-the-water updates from some of our RCYC spectators.
@InvitationalCup: The NYYC Regatta Media Officials will be posting via Twitter as well, follow @InvitationalCup and get their latest Tweets.
@NYYC_org: The NYYC will be Tweeting at this address.

Like the NYYC Invitational Cup Facebook page and visit the site clicking here.

NYYC Website
Be sure to check in at The New York Yacht Club’s Website by clicking here for up to date information from the host club. They will also provide a list of other media covering this event. Daniel Forster will provide daily photo galleries on the NYYC Invitational Cup website as well as at RegattaNews.

Virtual Eye
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.

Live Audio
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 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.

    Well done team RCYC! Nice to see that we are doing so well again. Had hoped to be in Newport for the event but stuck in London. As a member of both RCYC and Royal Thames the results are very satisfying!
