America's Cup

Prada Cup – Day 1

And then there were two… wins that is! INEOS Team UK MUST have been good this year to get a whole lot of boat speed from “Santa” over Christmas! But seriously, great job to the whole team as Ben Ainslie said:

“I’ve gotta say, that race was for the rest of our team back at the dock, our designers, our engineers, our shore team, boat builders, they have had just an epic two or three weeks turning this boat around… and for our friends at Mercedes GP for helping us to turn this around”.

Here are my welcome and debrief AC Chat & Wrap shows, the first of which aired today including racing footage and interviews thanks to the America’s Cup and COR. 

Looking forward to having some great guests over the course of the Prada and America’s Cups, including John Bertrand, Tom Slingsby, Andrew “Dog” Palfrey, and Katie Spithill to unpick the racing, talk about the tech, and basically just wish we were also there in Auckland watching some great racing live! 

Welcome to day 1 – AC Chat & Wrap
