Challenger of Record for thr 35th America's cup, Hamilton Island Yacht Club's Team Australia Principal Sandy Oatley and CEO Iain Murray, announce the new Australian skipper of their 2017 America's Cup challenge in Sydney and launch their Team Australia AC 45.

In the second video, Iain Murray talks to BoTV about the Team Australia and the coming 2017 America's Cup.

It would seem that the boats will be aroound 62-65ft, and there will be a crew nationality clause, but quite what percantage if not disclosed.

For a breath of fresh air into an America's Cup challenge this is a must see.
