Outstanding TV Globo Coverage Of Open Water Swimming

TV Globo provided outstanding television coverage of the King and Queen of the Sea (Rei e Rainha do Mar) in Copacabana Beach from all different angles and vantage points. Verão Espetacular provided exciting live television coverage:

If race directors are interested in the turn buoys used at the King and Queen of the Sea, they are made of pneumatic PVC Sansuy plastic sheet 0.60mm in thickness, 3 meters in diameter and 3 meters in height. The white buoys cost US$700 and the colored buoys cost US$900.

In order to add a sponsor’s name and logo to the buoys, race directors must also buy the appropriate adhesive from the vendor. However, if race directors have the same sponsor for their events, the vendor can pre-print the logos on both sides of the buoys for an extra US$100.

Highlights from the 2009 King of the Sea competition are shown below:
