'It’s fantastic to be here in San Francisco and have the opportunity to line up with Oracle and to do it on the America’s Cup race course. We learned a lot from our sailing with them. We learned that we have a lot of improving to do so we are taking it on.
'It’s going to be a full team effort. We have the shore team, the design team and everyone is enthusiastic and we are going to roll up our selves and get into it before we get back out on the track.' explained CEO, Paul Cayard.
Sailing Team Director, Iain Percy explains the benefits and reality of sailing with Oracle. 'With this new version no one really knows. We all have our ideas and when we get out there and first sail with the boat it become clear whether everything was right or wrong. We have a few modifications to make.
Everyone who has sailed Lasers at their club knows that sailing on your own is very tough. You don’t double the quality, you ten times the quality.'
