Pres. Ron Mitchel with speaker Steve Killing - America's Cup 21.24

Steve outlined past America’s Cups from 2021 up to next year 2024. He described how as the ‘oldest Sports Trophy” in the world it pits the Defending champion against the Winner of the Challengers. Steve went on to share pictures that showed the change from the traditional Yachts to the Catamarans of recent times. A major change in the Race has been the development of dual “foils” whereby the boats can “fly” as the term goes.
With further pictures of actual races we saw the challenges that Racers face and how penalties are administrated.
