Hyères and the palm trees, symbol of the city, is appreciated by competitors and their support, for the climate, the easy access with the international airport at walking distance form the port, and for facilities as easy accommodation, at reasonable price compared with other cities of Riviera Coast.
The racing areas offers a wide range of wind conditions, with smooth sea breeze, sometimes Mistral, strong northerly with flat water, or easterly wind bringing big waves and rough sea. These changing conditions make the sport difficult but cannot be better for preparation of the teams.
Located in the heart of the event venue, the media centre enjoys great views over the bay and all the racing areas. This central point favours the contact between media and sailors and is equipped with fast internet connection. Media releases and interviews in French and English are distributed daily.
Rights free news feeds containing interviews and b-roll of sailing action will be available from Wednesday 23 April through to Saturday 26 April on the ISAF FTP. A log Sheet will be attached.
Fully-produced highlight packages will be available from 23-26 April.
