Priority will be given to media with confirmed assignments and places distributed fairly throughout the period of the regatta to allow everyone a chance to get out on the water.

We will also do our best to accommodate your requirements to provide press coverage from onboard a yacht during the regatta, however please note there will be very limited places available.
