Carbon boats and carbonated beverages are both part of the 2021 America’s Cup, but many sailors are thinking there must be another sponsor announcement coming soon to add to the mix.
More importantly, New Zealand has launched their second boat, which took its first sail and, like all the boats, seems to have the basics all dialed in.
It will all get much more interesting once they start lining up against each other. The first racing between the teams will be the Prada America’s Cup World Series Auckland and Christmas Race coming up on December 17-20. At this time, due to COVID, Americans are not allowed to travel to New Zealand to see the America’s Cup, but they can enjoy a Coke and something.
