I’m down in Maryland on the Chesapeake for a visit – reading through the Baltimore Sun and came across this article on According to the article the Annapolis-based firm broadcasts regattas in cyberspace…an example of Web technology rising to fill a void in the ratings-driven world of network television. We can watch football until we’re sick (go Steelers) but try and find a regatta – aside from the America’s Cup once every four years – on ESPN. As one of the principals in the company notes, “sailing is a very hard sport to convey to a general audience."

All of this aside, it’s hard not to cheer for these two sailing entrepreneurs. Who among us (meaning those who don’t get paid to race) wouldn’t want a job filming regattas from a fast boat?
