I contacted Mr Gruitt on social media to see when he was going to provide a slideshow but he implied that he was putting something together for a publication and I'd see it shortly but nothing!
I was at the show filming with Mark Jardine, two videos went up on the Saturday with 5 or 6 viewable on Y&Y.com at the moment. I do not recall any social media contact about a slideshow, I wasn't photographing the show so woulnd't have ever agreed to that.


Tom, I sent you a Facebook message asking if you were going to put your photos up from the show, but that's by the by.

The point I was making is that often the sailing community want to see the pics even if they were at the show, because it's easy to miss stuff. It's also good to start discussions around specific boats or features on boats.

If you look in the right places you'll find a rich vein of content, just because its online doesn't mean it falls into your lap.

Silly me for thinking that I might be able to go to a news source for some journalistic content on the biggest annual trade show rather than the puff piece PR stuff pumped out by suppliers (and to a lesser extent CAs) scattered across the internet.

There's no subscription to Pistonheads, it's just a website you visit when you want to read about car stuff, and it has a forum tacked on the back of it.  I could draw a few parallels with the setup here, one key difference though is the Y&Y website "news" content is predominantly user/supplier generated and on PH it's predominantly internally generated.


Your right of course, and perhaps Y&Y should bring all those videos together in to editorial pieces for those that cant find or bother to look for source material.

The overall performance of the manufacturers and class associations on media content has improved, still along way to go though.  It would require a sizeable and well oiled team to cover the show with decent content over two days.

Nice Moth interview. Especially the elderly chap looking at the boat during it!

This year I've seen nothing so far other than the grumbles about the Flying 10.

The expectation is that media will be available instantly, after all I guess many people came back from the show, dumped all their pics on Flickr etc. And shared with their mates. Media businesses like Y&Y need to be going one better than your local club amateur photographer and getting the content out almost live.

I think waiting for a magazine doesn't really work these days Jim. The multi media content should all be out there on the internet by now in my opinion.

For example, contrast the coverage of the dinghy show with Pistonheads coverage of the Geneva motor show which happened days apart.

Coverage in the paper version has, for the past few years been equally lamentable.
I seem to recall less than 10 pages, over two issues last time
