About the Race
The Nord Stream Race is the largest yacht race in the Baltics, and pits the five best national teams from Finland, Denmark, Germany, Russia and Sweden against each other in an epic 1,000 nautical mile offshore race, visiting each of the participating countries along the way, to determine the ultimate title of “Best Yacht Club in the Baltics”.
Starting in Kiel, the teams will compete in identical, Finnish-designed ClubSwan 50 racing yachts in multiple legs, stopping in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg. In addition to each of these offshore legs, there will be inshore races held at each of the stopovers, with the yachts racing close to the main harbours creating an exciting event for spectators to enjoy. The results of the offshore legs and inshore races will be combined to produce an overall winner.
Representing Finland is the sailing club of Esbo Segelförening with ten highly skilled young sailors supported by Dream Broker, the leading online video software company from Finland. Dream Broker is especially excited about supporting the race, as one of the crew members is Oliver Hartas, Content Producer at Dream Broker. An experienced sailor originally from Australia, Oliver was asked to join the team as Trimmer, and is especially proud not only to represent Dream Broker, but to have the opportunity to represent Finland as well.
Dream Broker is proud to support the team in their endeavour because it aligns strongly with the values and principles of the company. Making waves in the Baltic Sea and the software industry alike, the strong sense of ambition, passion and heart drives both entities, to new horizons that would not be possible without meaningful communication. Their online video software product, Dream Broker Studio, is leading the industry in revolutionising business communication with the power of video.
Now more than ever, maintaining great communication is key for every organisation and industry, and video is the most effective medium, making up of 82% of all internet traffic. Working remotely also relies heavily on cyber secure video communication, and Dream Broker Studio enhances all aspects of business communication in a fun, natural and productive way. The team will not only be using Dream Broker Studio to post live updates during the race, but as a case study, Oliver will continue working, even from out to sea, thanks to the power of Dream Broker Studio.
