  • Treat for people watching at cowes today. Abu dhabi volvo 70 blasting up and down in 30 knots of wind. Great view from #exss vip tent. #
  • Bumper 'edition' today – stories from the Volvo Ocean Race, Cowes Week, Extreme Series and America's Cup. Keep an eye on http://goo.gl/Jrrzc #
  • Cut and paste sailing 'journalism' alive and well. Many sites saying Artemis Challenge winner Vincent Riou won the last Vendee. He didn't. #
  • With link that works on Twitter. RT @34thAC: Live stream is live! http://www.americascup.com or youtube.com/americascup #ACWSCascais #
  • Some of the promised graphics appearing on the #ACWSCascais video feed. Nice little cocktail flags to remind Artemis they are Swedish. #
  • Guess what race fans – "if you come to Cascais, you won't see the yellow lines painted on the water." #ACWSCascais #
  • @dangriffey Yep. What's on now is pretty cool and sailing commentators don't have a monopoly on saying stupid things. in reply to dangriffey #
  • The America's Cup is buying Google ads. (might be free as part of Youtube deal) – Finally doing some marketing. #AC34 #

  • Just saw that. What is kph ? RT @BAUDRYCH: #ACWSCASCAIS are speeds indicated in Km/H or Knots ? Kph is ????? #
  • Toyota doing well out of the sponsorship of the emirates team NZ daggerboards. In most shots from most angles. #acwscascais #
  • I think one of the pieces of music they are using on the coverage of #acwscascais comes preinstalled on the flip video camera. Familiar. #
  • Is the defender in trouble? Beaten by @EmiratesTeamNZ and @ArtemisRacing in the only race that mattered. #acwscascais #
  • Crowds pouring in? Are you watching the same feed i am? Measured in 10s rather than thousands. #acwscascais #
  • @matchracedialup 7 tweets with the #acwscascais tag in 20 minutes not really a trend. in reply to matchracedialup #
