Put the big boats back in big blue water, have live on board sound and video on each boat and have several helicopters flying close to the boats with some of todays stabilized cameras like IMAX and put some awesome sound tracks in the race film. Then show this full event racing along with sponsors commercails on big IMAX type screens in theaters with great sound systems and sell advertising space to the sponsors and admission to the showings as a way to pay for the filming,production, race, purses, insurance etc.
I know I would pay $25-$35 for a ticket to something like this and I think the rest of the fans around the world who love to watch the sport would too. Even the sales of the video would be good for the awesome home systems that a lot of viewers have today.
I think its a lot better than sitting on a beach somewhere watching some boats race around a small course at distances where you can barely hear the boats let alone see them.
Think about how many people watch Football on TV versus at the game and how much better the coverage is?!
What do you think? Maybe its an idea whose time has come!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar
I Like it.

You guys don't spend much time down in the General Racing Discussion, do ya?

Nothing I'd like to see more, but the drama is very thick.

Sounds like Lake Erie.... we have square waves.... 4 ft high and 4 ft apart...up, over, and down.. makes for interesting boating!
