Sailing Bits and Pieces From Around the Web 2011-06-20


The following were the tweets we sent during the week. It was week when the America’s Cup announced their new team line up with Energy Team looking strong.
The capsize was probably the most tweeted thing in sailing during the week, proving that all people love a wreck…
  • The cynics in the office can’t help thinking this one was on purpose for the youtube views. http://fb.me/14YY70ThV via @SandervdBorch#
  • RT @fredeagle: A better hashtag for Energy Team is #energyteamfr Exclusive to the Peyron #AC34 challenge. #
  • RT @audimedcup: Welcome from Marseille Audi MedCup fans! 52 Series practice race today… http://t.co/sLO4CfW #MedCup#
  • Lots of people looking for information about the AC World Series in Cascais – sorry we can’t help. No programme that we know of cc: @34thAC#
  • Good to see activities for non-sailors. RT @RoundtheIsland: …and this one’s for our lovely spectators at the #RTIRhttp://t.co/NWJpGOs#
  • We’re not a news site. So our considered response about the ac world series teams will come in due course #
  • Was it staged? America’s Cup Iain Murray ‘chuckles’ about Coutts capsize “It’s a Hollywood script, isn’t it.” http://goo.gl/tj9uJ #AC34#
  • Perhaps we should ‘report’ a few more ‘premature facts’ – not really our style though… What do you think? #
  • Looking forward to catching up with a whole bunch of interesting people at the Round the Island Race press conference next Friday. #RTIR#
  • @JamesJetsOften thanks for the #ff – it’s going to be fun…. in reply to JamesJetsOften#
