A reflective look at the much criticised Britannia 1 . . . The INEOS Team UK’s first boat to the AC75 design rule for the 36th America’s Cup.
Britannia 1 is now slowly making her way to New Zealand where she will be the back-up boat for the British team’s challenge for the America’s Cup in early 2021.
The second AC75 version – Britannia 2 – has been heavily rumoured to follow the design trend set by the New Zealand and Italian AC36 teams with a more ‘skiff’ based design.
