America’s Cup: Skippers Talk the Talk

Published on October 16th, 2015

Hamilton, Bermuda (October 16, 2015) – This weekend offers a preview of the America’s Cup teams in Bermuda as the third series in the Americas Cup World series will be held October 17-18. Nic Douglass provides a report and video from the activity today in Bermuda….

The official practice race day at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series events also means the official press conference.

There was a good bit of banter today; with Nathan Outteridge covering a few of the issues Artemis Racing had at the last event in Gothenburg, Sweden but how the team is moving forward. Also between Sir Ben Ainslie and Jimmy Spithill on defender versus challenger advantages and also who has the most claim to Bermuda as a home venue…

You will have to watch to find out the particulars…

Given the weather was very light today, this for me was the most entertaining part of the day. For me personally, it was really great to see the skippers all in Bermuda ahead of 2017. They really are great guys and representatives of our sport to the mainstream.

Let’s just all hope there is some wind tomorrow so we can see them battle on the water rather than on land (as entertaining as it can be)!
