American Magic Testing Manager Anderson Reggio provides insights into the on-the-water operations for the U.S. Challenger for the 36th America’s Cup.
Dozens of team personnel follow DEFIANT onto the water each day the boat goes out, including shore crew, coaches, safety specialists, designers, alternate sailors, and more. Launching, managing, protecting and analysing an AC75 is a full-team effort executed with care, precision and purpose.
“We can have upwards of 45 people on the water on a given day, including the sailors. It’s a massive undertaking.”
