#KeepingYouCovered

64 videos in total, a three-hour pre-start live show talking with over 35 boats through the fleet, start commentary for ABC Grandstand, a world first with live offshore drone coverage of the middle to smaller sized yachts off the coast of Sydney, over 15 hours of live coverage including finishes with over 50 yachts right throughout the fleet in Hobart… This was the core of the “Keeping You Covered” campaign led by Nic Douglass, the Sailor Girl for this year’s 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart with the help of Pantaenius Sail & Motor Yacht Insurance, and supporters Musto Australia, Harken Australia, the Cronulla Sailing Club and the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania. 

Check out the release of the highlights package below, with appearances from Nic’s hand-picked team of media professionals, including Ronnie Simpson (Droney), Tiana Wittey (Side-Nic), Nev Wittey (The Beneteau Whisperer), and Steve Barker (The Voice).

Here we go! The highlights from our #KeepingYouCovered campaign for the 75th Anniversary of the Rolex Sydney Hobart!

SYDNEY

Adventures of a Sailor Girl is on the ground in Sydney to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race that we’ve ever done! Supported by our presenting sponsors Pantaenius Yacht Insurance, Musto and Harken, we have an entire team of sailing media professionals to bring you dock side interviews, live broadcasting of major press conferences, the start on Boxing Day and innovative live coverage offshore of Sydney once the fleet has cleared the Sydney Heads! After the fleet has sailed out of sight, we will fly to Hobart and get ready to do the whole thing over again at the finish in Tasmania!

We’ve already interviewed sailors from over 30 boats in the fleet, and just like our main sponsor Pantaenius, we are #keepingyoucovered from the little 34-footers to the most flash supermaxis and everything in between! Stay tuned to our website and social media channels to stay up to date on what’s happening and how to follow along throughout the entire Sydney to Hobart, and how you can have a chance to win some awesome prizes that we will be giving away throughout the event!
