Scuttlebutt Poll:

Which sailing show would you watch?
September 17-18, 2012

With so much discussion about improving the manner in how sailing events are broadcast, Scuttlebutt got curious about what people would prefer to watch. And to keep this simple, we considered only the three sailing events with the highest international profile:

  • America’s Cup - match racing in catamarans

  • Olympics - one design racing, 9 fleet race events and 1 match race event

  • Volvo Ocean Race - around the world race in crewed keelboats

  • We conducted this poll in 2010, but since these events have now been broadcast either online or on television (or in the case of the America's Cup, the AC World Series), we were wondering how the poll results may change.

    So here's the scenario. You are home on a Saturday afternoon, relaxing on the couch, and channel surfing on the television. You find that there are several sailing shows on at the same time, and all of them are equally well produced.

    If these three shows where on at the same time, which one would you watch?

  • 40.50% - America's Cup
  • 34.03% - Volvo Ocean Race
  • 25.47% - Olympics
