Jack Griffin: 35th Americas Cup Bermuda 2017
On the eve of the 35th edition, we talk with Cup Experience Founder; Jack Griffin from his home in Geneva, Switzerland about 'all things' Americas Cup. From the venue differences between San Francisco and Bermuda, to which teams are most likely to make the Louis Vuitton Cup Finals, to Jack's pick for the Americas Cup 2017 winner. This episode recaps the final moments of each of the last 30 years of Americas Cups and then Jack drills into who the form teams are for this years event, who is most likely to surprise us and whether Emirates Team New Zealand's cycle powered innovation will be the difference. With major changes in the course format and weather in Bermuda, we could see the return of the upwind tacking duels of old - but this time in high speed catamarans, doing almost 50 knots and up on foils for 100% of the race.
