Brad Butterworth lifted the lid on fascinating stories from the America's Cup, Steinlager II and a special feature on Rambler 88 in the ninth edition of the RORC Time Over Distance Lockdown series of interviews.

He has competed in seven editions of the America's Cup in the afterguard, winning the America's Cup four times in succession. Butterworth's winning streak of 16 consecutive races is unequalled. He was watch captain for Peter Blake's Steinlager II, winning all six legs of the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race. In recent year's Butterworth has been tactician on George David's Maxi Rambler 88, taking line honours in the Rolex Fastnet Race, Rolex Middle Sea Race, and both line honours and the race record for the RORC Caribbean 600.

Louay Habib interviews Brad Butterworth for an hour-long show featuring: pictures, videos and stories from a phenomenal career.
