Media Registration Hours
After filling in your accreditation form, you can come to the Regatta Village at Port de Plaisance to pick up your media kit and officially register at the media desk. There are two days on which we allow you do to the registration:
Tuesday February 26, 2019 from 10.00 – 18.00 hrs
Wednesday February 27, 2019 from 10.00 – 18.00 hrs
Please make sure that you can make it in time for the media registration, otherwise your position on a boat might be given away to someone else.
Media boats are available for accredited media personnel only. The initial allocation for media boats will be made during registration. Any changes to the schedule need to be given to a member of the media team by 8:00pm the evening before the scheduled trip. This can be done at the media booth or via telephone. The number will be given at registration.
Media should be at the waterfront of Port de Plaisance at 7.30 am every race-day. Registered media assigned to media boats must be present no later than 7.45 am. Those not present on time will lose their place on the media boats. Space is limited, boats will leave Port de Plaisance no later than 8.00 am. Lunch and drinks will be available on the media boats. We advise you to bring sun tan lotion and any other sun protection you require as it can be very hot out on the water.
**Note for Freelancers without letters of assignment. There are no media boats available for Freelancers without media assignments. Should there be any cancellations or no-shows, then these spots will be made available on a first come first serve basis. There are no guarantees.
For further information on the press conferences please email our Media Coordinator.
Provisional race results will be available daily at the Regatta Village at Port de Plaisance, and on the internet as soon as they are made available to us by the Race Committee. On the final day, race results for that day will be publicly posted as usual. The press will however be given the final cumulative results as soon as possible, so they may conduct interviews.
