Louis Vuitton World Series - Press Conference - 8 Sep 2009, 2:30pm
Our apologies but it was impossible to stream the presentation for a very simple reason that was completely beyond our control. Guess what, there was NO internet available in the press conference room.
Valencia Sailing will fly to Paris later today in order to attend Tuesday's press conference in Louis Vuitton's offices. Yves Carcelle, president of Louis Vuitton, Christian Estrosi, mayor of Nice, and Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team NZ and World Sailing Team Association representative, will officially present the "Louis Vuitton World Series", the newly founded yacht racing circuit.
We will try to provide live streaming of the press conference, using the services of LiveStream. This will be done for the first time on this website and as a result we don't know yet how it will work. So, please bear with us.
The conference is scheduled to start at 2:30pm, Central European Time, and if you are interested in watching it just visit Valencia Sailing 5-10 minutes earlier. You don't need any special software, the live stream should appear at the top of the site.
Regardless of the success or not of our streaming test, you are more than welcome to send any questions you might have.
