RSA TV Coverage of the Volvo Ocean Race

volvo ocean race logoby Richard Crockett

I have just receive the official TV schedule of broadcasters who will be flighting coverage of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Initially I could not find any South African stations listed, so before letting the old blood boil I searched more carefully and found good old RSA listed under ‘Pan Africa’ with M-Net-Supersport as the broadcaster.

Despite a thorough search on the Supersport website to find exactly what was being broadcast and when, I could find absolutely noting other than there will be some VOR coverage on CNN Channel 401 as part of the MainSail programme. Whether this includes the In-Port Race on Saturday or not is unclear>

I have made enquiries with Supersport, and will publish the schedule should I receive it. But don’t hold your breath!

If anyone has additional info in this regard, please pass it on.
