America's Cup Uncovered is a weekly magazine video program is designed to show America's Cup fans the people, places and stories that are the backbone of the America's Cup.
Featuring behind-the-scenes sneak-peeks, athlete profiles and up-close action on and off the water, America's Cup Uncovered will take an in-depth look at the 34th America's Cup edition over the next two years, offering an exclusive window into one of the most prestigious events in sport.
This week on America's Cup Uncovered we are in Naples, Italy for the first America's Cup World Series event of 2012. Italian fans proved to be as passionate as ever for the America's Cup, with the crowd along the waterfront over the first holiday weekend (April 7-9) estimated at 250,000. Nine AC45s made the start line, including the debut of two Luna Rossa entries, helmed by Chris Draper and Paul Campbell-James. We also catch up with our newest and youngest skipper Nathan Outteridge as he heads out on the water for his first AC World Series competition with Team Korea. Then we'll share not to be missed action from Naples as the AC World Series kicks off in spectacular conditions.
