KTA News:Media Partnership for KTA and Marine Scene Asia

Well some great news before we reach the next round of the Asian Championship Tour; the KTA is very pleased to be able to announce a new media partnership with the online TV company Marine Scene Asia.

Marine Scene Asia is a specialist sailing channel that produces a monthly programme called Go Yachting which covers a wide range of yachting and boating happenings around the region. It also specialises in sail regatta programming and it was at the recent Kings Cup Regatta in Thailand where the KTA and Marine Scene Asia first made contact. So to follow the first of the KTA bringing kiting to a major sailing regatta, it now has the first kiting channel to appear on specialist sailing site.

It is a positive development that reflects the growing interest in kiteboarding as it becomes a potential future Olympic sailing class and both Marine Scene Asia and the KTA felt that this partnership would offer an ideal opportunity for the sailing community to become more familiar with the kiting scene.

The new programming kicks off with the first competition round of the season the ‘KTA power by Aqua Boracay’ and will continue to follow the fortunes of the tour and other competitions as we continue through the year.

Co-founder of Marine Scene Asia Duncan Worthington has this to say about the company,

“We are Asia-based and proud of it. Our remit is the marine scene in Asia. This will include not only regattas and boat shows, but also the latest happenings in the Asian industry, destinations, facilities and elements of the marine lifestyle. Competitive sailing is a niche sport in terms of TV coverage and the Internet is allowing sailing to reach a larger audience and events are seeing the benefits of IPTV as a cost-effective way to reach new, targeted markets”

For the KTA and kiting we think this is a great step and one that is hopefully just the start of many more links with sailing and the marine industry at large. A positive start to the year  of the Dragon – the year of the ‘Water Dragon’ as it actually is – which means that it’s a year to launch new projects and boost positive thoughts.  So we can work with that and you can check out the results with our new media partner to see how things develop.
