Published on December 18th, 2020
After day two of the Prada America’s Cup World Series in Auckland, New York Yacht Club American Magic is at the top of the leader board but tied with Emirates Team New Zealand at three wins and one loss each. Ken Read of North Sails is in New Zealand and joins Sail Newport on Monday, December 21 at 6 p.m. ET, for a special online presentation. It will include his view, as a former AC skipper and one of the best sailors in the world, of the boat handling, strategy, tacking duels, penalties, and wins and losses.
The virtual Challenger Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The event will be double-packed for sailing fans as Rich Wilson, the legendary Vendée Globe sailor will follow Ken with an update on the drama of the around-the-world race currently underway.
Brad Read will emcee the presentation.
