On air in Dubai

The BMW ORACLE Racing sailing team had an off day on Thursday, but mid-bow Brad Webb and navigator Ian Moore pulled community relations duty in the evening.

The pair went live on ARN talk radio during the 'afternoon drive' show with host Tom Urquhart, to promote the team and the Louis Vuitton Trophy ahead of the first day of racing on Sunday. The radio show was set up at the Barasti Beach bar at the Dubai International Marine Club, who is hosting the LVT in Dubai.

Tomorrow will be another day on the water for the guys with the first official practice day. On Friday evening, skipper Jimmy Spithill will participate in the opening press conference. Be sure to look for photos tomorrow evening to see his locally inspired entrance.
