TV Filming

BIG NEWS Giles Scott (ex Hollowell member) currently with the British Americas Cup team is racing in Bermuda Fri 26th. The BBC would like to come down on Thursday 25th 6pm and do a VT from the shore. THAT'S NOT ALL - Friday 26th - A LIVE BROADCAST ! Big screen telly, watching the races as it happens and capturing our reactions.

LATEST UPDATE: You need to know the while it is the BBC filming the showing is on BT SPORTS. Also, there maybe issues about the live broadcast - at the moment it is still at the club house BUT this may be subject to change.


Thursday 25th May

6pm start. Lots of boats on the water - please can members consider coming down and rigging their boat and sailing. Thursday racing as usual. Back on the Water course also the same evening. Junior/ Youth Team on shore (organiser Graham Smith). Interviews on shore with Simon Cray and others. Pre-recorded interviews for showing on Friday.

Friday 26th May

As yet, we do not know the start time. Looking at the Americas cup website racing is due to start at 17:00hrs on 26th that's 21:00hrs here. This will be a LIVE broadcast from Hollowell Sailing Club. Yes big lorry with 'dish' on the roof in the car park. Big screen in the clubhouse with us watching (and cheering). Live transmission from Bermuda. We have issues that week as a group of our sailors are bumming around the Channel. So we are looking for 'rent-a-crowd, please bring your friends - if you have any! PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THIS FOR OTHERS TO TURN-UP. A shot of a full Hollowell club room will be amazing publicity.
