Irish Sailing professional Maurice Prof O'Connell is working in the Bahamas this week on the broadcast team that is covering all five days of sailing of the Star Sailors League Finals live from Nassau. The regatta starts on Tuesday the 3rd of December and will end on the 7th.
No stranger to the small screen, Prof O'Connell, who works as a professional sailor and coach, and one-design expert with North Sails Ireland, provided the in-studio commentary and analysis with Digby Fox for live action on StarSailors.com last May.
There will be four days of qualification with up to 14 races in the Bahamas. Next Saturday there will be a quarter-final, a semi-final and the grand finale.
