Medal Races in Hyères will be broadcast live on the ISAF website on Sunday 26 April with Weymouth & Portland following on 14 June 2015.
Andrew Preece, Managing Director of Sunset+Vine|APP said, "We have worked with ISAF over a number of years to produce coverage of the ISAF Olympic Classes World Championships in Perth in 2011 and in Santander in 2014. In conjunction with our distribution department Sunset+Vine International we also distributed live programming to 24 broadcasters and 45 territories worldwide. We are thrilled to once again have been selected by ISAF to deliver this coverage.
"Our goal is to now work with ISAF to establish the ISAF Sailing World Cup globally and to provide Olympic classes coverage - news and live - to broadcasters around the world in the buildup to Rio 2016."
Gary Jobson, ISAF Vice-President said, "ISAF is delighted to be working with Sunset+Vine|APP for ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères. They delivered an exceptional show for the Santander 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships and we look forward to working with them again. They have a tremendous track record in producing sailing events of the highest calibre and ISAF are excited about broadcasting Medal Races live at an ISAF Sailing World Cup round for the first time."
Racing is underway in Hyères with elite level fleets putting their skills to the ultimate test with 40 of the world's best in each class. ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères marks the first occasion where fleets are decided based on the ISAF World Sailing Rankings and a qualification regatta. A four day racing series will build up to the Medal Races on Sunday 26 April where titles will be won and ISAF Sailing World Cup Final spots snapped up.
The world's top 30 sailors from the 2 February 2015 ISAF World Sailing Rankings release were invited to Hyères with the remaining ten receiving their spot at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères qualification regatta, Trofeo Princesa Sofia.
