Lights, Cameras, Action!

Star EuropeansThis week, Kathleen could be found, not on the water, but in front of the camera at the Star Class European Championship in Gaeta, Italy.  Sitting along side America’s Cup commentator Louay Habib, Kathleen gave play by play commentary to an international sailing audience.

“I totally didn’t expect this.  I was in Gaeta training on my board, waiting for Augie [Diaz] to finish the event before heading down to Talamone to race in a Snipe regatta together. They needed a second person in the studio and somehow, it ended up being me.  A one day gig became three.  It was a fantastic experience and the media team made my  job easy.  They were great to work with.”

The Star Class is one of the oldest and most prestigious classes in the sport of sailing – a class where legends come to make their mark.  The media team for the Star Europeans was organized by the Star Sailors League (SSL), one of the few professional circuits in the sport.  Look for Kathleen in front of the cameras at the next SSL event in Grandson, Switzerland this September.
