“You can’t film everywhere, some stuff is secret”, Francesco Bruni, Helmsman.

What goes on inside the cockpit of an America’s Cup test boat is one of the most intriguing areas of the modern America’s programme. In the latest episode of ‘Artemis Racing: Road to Bermuda’, Francesco Bruni provides an insight into some of the technology behind our first development boat of the campaign, Turbo 1.

Systems Engineer, Matt Davis, continues, “A lot of the technology we use comes from F1 and high level motorsport. The interface between the driver, or helmsman, and the onboard system is optimised to his requirements”.

The episode also includes an update from Skipper, Nathan Outteridge, on the state of play with less than 8 months to go to the finals of AC35, and Loick Peyron provides the inspiration to a squad of young aspiring sailors in Toulon, thanks to Argo Group.
