In many cases, sailing isn’t good enough to be a complete sailor: filming, taking pictures, writing and talking to the radio is part of the sport; the sailors train for it as they practice jibing in 30 knots ; they must know how to film, edit, make a statement and much more.

Look at the Vendée Globe sailors: it is part of their event rules to produce and distribute videos. Some of them are fantastic and deserve an Award: this is the reason why we decided to include a specific section in the Mirabaud Sailing Video Award, dedicated to professional sailors who film their achievements as part of their « job description ».
