Thomson Reuters Aurora stars in Nov 4 ESPN sailing program
Sailors and sports fans should stay near the television set on Friday evening, Nov 4, when the Thomson-Reuters sponsored 66-foot ocean racer Aurora will be featured in one of three ESPN sailing programs produced by sailing legend Gary Jobson, a regular on Aurora as helmsman and tactician.
Whether you are a yacht racer, a cruising sailor or recreate on a Sunfish, you will enjoy exciting footage from Aurora’s 2011 season of racing in the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of the United States and Canada. Thanks to the seamanship and dedication of a mostly non-professional crew, the Aurora sailing program collected numerous trophies this year, radiated good karma and sportsmanship, and established Thomson Reuters as a premier sponsor of world class sailing events. New Thomson Reuters ads featuring the stunning Aurora under sail will also be aired for the first time during the three-hours of prime-time sailing on ESPN Classic, which starts at 7 p.m. EDT (2300 GMT.) The programing details:
ESPN Classic, Friday Nov. 4:
7:00pm Best of One Design Racing
8:00pm New York Yacht Club World Invitational Cup
9:00pm Racing for an Ocean Record (this is the show on Aurora)
