Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(November 12-16, 2007) The 2006/2007 World Match Race Tour will soon conclude their longest season ever. In an effort to work around the 32nd America's Cup in April-July 2007, the tour revised their schedule to avoid conflict, and created a 15-event season that began in July 2006 and will conclude at the Monsoon Cup in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia on Nov 28-Dec 2, 2007.

The 2008 tour will return to a shorter schedule that will likely begin in the spring, though it expects to maintain the Malaysia event to officially crown the World Match Racing season champion. Below are two outstanding shows that provide great insight into the event, the sailors, and the intricacies of this area of the sport.
