Sailing summit will be streamed live online

The International Sailing Summit will be streamed live online next Monday for the first time in the event’s history.

The summit’s theme, “Waking up the Sailing Industry — How Sailing Needs to Modernize, Diversify and Develop to Attract and Retain Participants,” will stress the importance of modernization and innovation.

The summit will take place in Amsterdam on the day before the Marine Equipment Trade Show opens.

Sailing businesses around the world will be able to see presentations by industry experts and sailing stars, including Olympic gold medalist Iain Percy; Molly Winans of Spinsheet Magazine; and Peter Johnstone of Gunboat.

Organizer British Sailing, a British Marine Federation association, is working in partnership with SailRacer and SportsXsream to use the latest in online technology to help share the benefits of the summit by providing streaming to sailing enthusiasts.

“During the event, audiences can follow the event live, and after the event the site will remain and work as an easy, accessible frame to find the replays of the recording from each speaker slot, including the presentations and all relevant documents,” SportsXstream’s Michael Jørgsholm said in a statement.

Live streaming will be available by visiting the ISS website from 8 a.m. (GMT) on Monday.
