Last years’ contest was won by Rob Dickinson, thanks to his great video featuring team AkzoNobel during the Volvo Ocean Race. Who will succeed him this year?

The winners will be announced and celebrated on 26 November at the Yacht Racing Forum in Bilbao (ESP).

The objective of the Mirabaud Sailing Video Award is to celebrate the best sailing videos produced each year, as well as their authors. The winners will be selected by an international jury according to the following criteria: 

General appreciation

Quality of production

Technical difficulty


"Videos showcase beautiful images, but above all they are about telling a story", says Nicolas Mirabaud, Managing Partner of Mirabaud. "Video offers a unique medium for freedom and creativity. As with sailing, to tell a story, there is no limit to innovation, imagination and creativity. Don't hesitate to surprise us and be original."
