Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(October 9-13, 2006) The Asian counties are simply unable to host a World Championship without also having unbelieveable parties. This region has a long history of going over-the-top with their festivities; even the Scuttlebutt team remembers the 1989 Snipe Worlds in Japan, where each evening the competitors boarded buses to travel to a new town that was hosting a party. We heard that the festivities at the 2006 Pre-Olympic regatta in Qingdao were epic, and this video of the Opening Ceremonies at the 2006 470 Worlds in Rizhao, China is a great example of the length that they go to. We are betting that you have never seen this kind of event in the US.
