INEOS TEAM UK: Exclusive behind-the-scenes

Britannia in full flight

The America’s Cup is a technology race. This means that even though the main event is happening on the waters off the coast of New Zealand, the race to the best design is happening in the shed, behind closed doors.

Today, Matt Cornwell, former world champion sailor and Head Rules Advisor at INEOS TEAM UK, is taking us on an exclusive tour of the INEOS TEAM UK headquarters in Auckland to meet some of the unsung heroes behind the Britannia.

Listen to Grant Simmer, CEO, Ollie Pendleton, design engineer and Max Starr, CDF analyst, as they discuss the Cup, rapid prototyping, systems & sensors, aero & hydro, and more!
