The Mirabaud Sailing Video Award 2020 puts the spotlight on ocean racing!

Herve Borde (Nefertiti) is awarded the Special Prize for their iconic video of the Vendee Globe 2016-17, filmed in the southern Oceans, while Artur Sikorski ( receives the Public Award.

"It's the only video I gave a score of 10 on all three criteria", says Martina Orsini, photographer and member of the Jury. "It isn't about a single race, but a collection of ocean experiences. The editing, the choice of images and the music are absolutely perfect. Of all the videos received, Martin's is the only one that managed to value the images so well. He is excellent and fully deserves this victory!"
