Round Britain 2008

Is anybody going to be taking pics/video on the Race? It will probably not be covered on TV in the US. Any ideas so that folks this side of the pond can see it.

There is a video being made by i believe Ian May from the 2 scoops team.

We have been given three 1030 Olympus cameras which we will be fixing to the boat and taking video and snap shots as we go round

If there is any TV coverage in the UK it will not be long before it finds its way to youtube…

I am doing the leg from Bangor in Northern Ireland to Oban in Scotland with Gordon Compton, and hope to hop onto different boats as we make our way through the Caledonian canal, I will take as much video and as many photos as time and battery power allow!

I have written a preview in Sports Boat and Rib magazine which should be out today, and there will be a report on the race the magazine after next. The website is quite informative as well, and you will be able to follow the boats "live" via a tracking system.

2 months behind schedule for starters. Won't go into detail but we had to design and build the consol. fitted it at the weekend so the sparky can finish of the electrics he reacons 5 days work left.

We need to have the boat in the water by Friday so the Mobile marine equipment can be fitted.

I have cameras i use for Thundercats being positioned over the boat plus helmet cams all wirelessly running to a storage drive in the console then at the end of the day i will upload the streamed video via a Panasonic "Tuff" book army spec laptop, uploaded then at the end of the day onto riblife and the racing website being built. Also we are looking in getting a special peice of kit which will allow you to view live whats going on.

We have a very clever web programmer working at RIB International and i think he is using it as his time to shine.

I have my Iphone also that if i have a chance will take any photos i can and email them back to the office to be uploaded. Although I think this will be hard at over 60 knots.

I understand live streaming video to be just that - live. It seems you will be uploading recorded video in the evening - still great to see how rough it is!

The only way of doing a live feed from out there is via satelite and that's expensive! Of course if you can get a 3G signal you could get a low res signal through, but that wouldn't be cheap either ......... unless you know different?

Milford Haven

Does anyone know what time the boats will be arriving/leaving Milford Haven and where the competitive legs in/out of MH will end/start?

I've looked at the web site it all seems to be very vague. The course would appear to have no turn marks etc, which makes it difficult to be an “on the water” spectator. Surly not the best way of attracting sponsors either, I was thinking of going to take a look somewhere off the east coast but where and would be safe to do so?
If anyone reading this knows more please do tell

Jim

I would suggest that the start and finish lines are the best place to see all the boats at the same time. You may have to use some local knowledge to work out where the boats are most likely to pass.

Cheers

Mark

P.S. There is only one mark, which you need to keep on your right, all of the time.

Rb 999

Getting ready for the Round Britain - all pretty tight on time - but don't think we are the only ones in that position!

Anyway - a shot of the boat - the first Technohull into the country- racing in last weekends Cancer Charities race.

Adam

All the best to everyone frantically getting prepared!

it looks likely that I will be on the west coast of kintyre for the tuesday (Bangor --> Oban) leg. Are most of the boats likely to go round the east of Jura? ...is there a reasonable prospect of seeing some boats in the sound of Jura - if I make the missus watch for hours and not see any action because the fleet either goes round islay or through the sound of islay I will be in trouble. Sound of Jura seems most logical to me - but what do I know!
