    Volvo Dun Laoghaire makes Christmas TV line-up

    December 11, 2007

    Volvo Dun Laoghaire makes Christmas TV line-up on RTE 1 Saturday, December 22
    at 4.20pm

    Competitors at this year’s Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta will get a chance to
    re-live the action this Christmas, as RTE broadcasts a half-hour documentary
    feature on the event.

    The production, entitled The Regatta, was shot over four days during an
    event that attracted over 500 boats from 11 nations. It takes viewers both on
    board the competing craft, and behind the scenes, to examine the challenges
    thrown up by organising such a large-scale event on the bay.

    Involving over 3,000 competitors, and 25 different classes, the Volvo
    Regatta was one of the largest participant sports events held in Ireland this year.

    Made by Baily Films, the company behind earlier critically-acclaimed
    water-based documentaries The Bay, The Harbour, The Estuary and The Navy.

    The Regatta will be broadcast on RTE 1 on Saturday, December 22, at 4.20pm.
