The best way to watch the races is to get onboard one of the fantastic charter sail boats in Key West. However, that does not mean that race committee officials compromise quality just to give the competitors some action. Tuesday at Quantum Key West 2015 brought dicey conditions that forced principal race officers make numerous tough decisions. Party Girl, sailed by Jens Altern Wathne of Norway, won the day in Melges 24 class with a fifth and a second - earning the Lewmar Boat of the Day Award. Two races were held in a light, patchy 6-9 knots, meaning that the tacticians had their work cut out to seek out the best pressure on the course. Race one was claimed by Jason Carroll’s ARGO Team, a fine achievement in their competitive debut in the GC32 class.
However at the end of play on the opening day it is ARGO with two time Melges 32 World Champion Jason Carroll on the helm that leads Marazzi by a point. Today it was only possible to foil downwind so those leading into the top mark were able to extend away down the run. Lane, Sanders, Cox and the entire SBI production crew pulled together three outstanding Livestream broadcasts in Key West. Picture a sports network television production booth, at least the kind you’ve seen in movies, during a live broadcast.
Now, picture last week’s Super Boat International Livestream broadcast production booth for the organization’s 2015 Offshore World Championship powerboat races in Key West, Fla. The front table is reserved for the on-air talent, meaning broadcasters Stan Lane and Tommy Sanders with an elevated flat screen monitor ahead of them, and an occasionally frantic guy named Rodrick Cox. If it all looks chaotic and free of unnecessary frills that’s because it is chaotic and free of unnecessary frills, and yet the Livestream broadcasts from this year’s SBI Key West Worlds were far and away the organization’s finest efforts of the season. Five camera angles, including those from two scissor-lifts and one helicopter, definitely upped the Livestream broadcasts’ production value.
According to Cox’s analytics, 75,000 to 90,000 viewers in 104 countries watched the Livestream broadcasts from the SBI Worlds.

Cox credits SBI president John Carbonell with spearheading the Livestream efforts, as well as JM Associates, which will produce three television shows from the 2015 SBI Worlds, for sharing its assets to enrich the broadcast this year and last.
Matt Trulio is an award-winning journalist who has covered the high-performance powerboat world since 1995.

Advanced tickets are available, as are chair placement numbers for those individuals with 3-day passes who are interested in early seating.
The fair will host a variety of livestock events, including the the Beef Heifer and Bull Show and Rodeo. Because of the consistent conditions off the Conch Republic, there have been very few lost race days. Fair and equitable racing is the hallmark of this event and organizers always make sure to adhere to that tradition.
There were some delays, a few false starts and even one abandonment, but by the time the day was over all three divisions had completed two races in shifty winds that ranged from 5 to 7 knots. Clarke stayed hot with a third bullet to begin Tuesday before cooling off and finishing seventh in Race 4.
Marazzi’s team came home third, which the Swiss former Olympic Star helm put down to taking too much risk which resulted in the boats on the right side of the first beat finding better pressure. Erik Maris with his French crew on ZouLou is third and newbie Alex Jackson on Leenabarca is fourth.
There are only three rectangular tables with folding chairs under a pop-up canopy on a breakwater called the “Outer Mole” just a few feet from the water.
But the real differentiators were the people who made it happen, namely Cox, the on-air talent and the broadcast’s dedicated crew. He wrote for Powerboat magazine for 17 years and was the magazine’s editor at large until it ceased publication in 2011.
8th kicked off the week long event with a parade of the race boats throughout downtown Key West.
Join the Marley family in celebrating the spirit of Bob Marley with a day of great entertainment. Come to Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin, and Strictly Sail at the Miamarina at Bayside to see the latest that boating offers!
Upwind, in 6-8 knots if you catch a little bit more you are around 4-5 knots faster immediately.
However ARMIN STROM Sailing Team, which is the most experienced GC32 crew competing in Key West, came good to win race two.
The only light comes from a multitude of screens, each in its own tidy black console and fed by its own camera covering every conceivable angle of the game. The screens display the video feeds from five different cameras on the course, and it’s Cox’s job to choose and assemble the best angles—the ones that most effectively tell the story at any given moment—as each race progresses.
But within the constraints of budget, logistics and the simple fact that a bunch of raceboats strung out on a 4.5-mile course are a challenge to cover, much less make into a compelling and cohesive program, SBI’s Livestream broadcasts, from the Key West Worlds were outstanding. The boats accompanied by some serious fancy toys, will be kept in Truman Annex for the week. The Annual food drive will be in full force, with a donation of 4 cans of food required with each admission ticket. The jungle of wires running between the middle and front tables is impressive and a little scary, as is the snake pit of power cords that run in every direction on the ground. And behind it all, calling out camera numbers and angles through a headset of his own, a director pulls it together into a real-time visual narrative. Two of the more popular classes include Superboat and Superboat Unlimited, as those are the races that generate some of the fastest lap speeds on record (see below).
