SAN FRANCISCO – Our AC35 Pre-Race Show via Facebook Live proved so popular that we will begin a weekly Facebook Live show today, July 11th, and every Tuesday henceforth. Tuesdays with TFE will be a multimedia show similar to what we did for AC35, but covering the "big four" yacht racing events – America's Cup, Olympics, Vendee Globe and Volvo Ocean Race – as well as other major regattas, particularly those that are the "signature events" of major yacht clubs around the world. On today's show we will bring you the latest Transpac news as well as a preview of this weekend's start of the Chicago-Mackinac and next week's 51st annual Governor's Cup.
Tuesdays with TFE will begin promptly at 1100 PDT and run for 30 minutes, including our usual Q&A with live viewers via Facebook commenting.
Note that the show will run on SAILING ILLUSTRATED's Facebook page – www.facebook.com/saillingillustratedblog – not your Ed.'s personal facebook page as we did with the AC35 show. Please navigate to our SI Facebook Page and "follow" the page. That will give you a FB notification whenever we go live.
If you cannot join us live, Tuesdays with TFE will, of course, be available for replay on the SI Facebook page as well as on our main website – www.sailingillustrated.com.
Please join us for what should be a light and lively 30-minute show today and every Tuesday.
