Close to 100 guests gathered to meet the team and have a close up view of the state of the art AC45, including the wing, which the team will race in the America’s Cup World Series events.
Bob Billingham thanked the guests for their support the team has had over the last ten months here in Valencia, before Helmsman Terry Hutchinson explained a bit about the road ahead and Santiago Lange talked through the precise process to pick the wing and get the AC45 ready to sail.
“Who would have thought we would be back in Valencia with a multihull preparing for the 34th America’s Cup, when we won the Louis Vuitton Cup here in 2007,”
said Helmsman Terry Hutchinson, reflecting on a conversation earlier today with Navigator Kevin Hall.
Guests enjoyed the opportunity to speak with the sailing, shore and design team members on hand about the AC45 and the upcoming America’s Cup World Series event which will take place in Cascais (Portugal) from 6-14 August.
