MaxComm’s team is back in Geneva, pleased with the success of the Yacht Racing Forum, the world’s leading conference dedicated to the business of sailing and yacht racing. The event took place in Malta on November 28-29.
The forum is MaxComm’s flagship event. It gathered 300 key actors from within the international yacht racing community in one place to discuss the future of the sport and debate about its’ current issues such as safety, design, marketing, new technologies etc. Most of the sport’s leading figures attended the event: Andy Hunt, World Sailing CEO, Ken Read, North Sails President, Håkan Svensson, World Match Racing Tour owner, Ed Baird, America’s Cup winner, Ian Walker, Wouter Verbraak, etc. The team at MaxComm is very pleased with the feed back from the delegates, close to 100% positive.
Alongside the forum, on Tuesday 29 November, the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image jury has rewarded Jean-Marie Liot and his fantastic picture of Morgan Lagravière training for the Vendée Globe. Nico Martinez, a spanish photographer, received the delegate’s award. The public’s award went to Christophe Huchet, with more than 4000 votes on Facebook. This contest has generated more than 1’000’000 views on social medias.
Our team would like to thank everyone who made this great event possible!
