RINA Webinar – INEOS TEAM UK: Developing the ultimate racing monohull for the 36th America’s Cup

1 July, 2020 @ 15:00 - 17:00

Led by Sir Ben Ainslie, a previous America’s Cup winner and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, INEOS TEAM UK was formed in 2018 to bring the America’s Cup home to Britain. We are delighted to welcome Nick Holroyd, Chief Designer at INEOS TEAM UK as our guest speaker for this webinar.

The America’s Cup is the oldest international sports trophy in the world and the most expensive to win. It is a competing platform where the most advanced marine technologies, strategic decision-making, and sailing skills all meet in the dramatic performance of racing flying yachts. The AC75 Class Rule, which defines the parameters within which teams can design an eligible yacht to compete in the next Cup, has introduced some ground-breaking regulations. Not only has the type of craft changed dramatically, from multihull catamaran to fixed-configuration monohull, but new limitations on prototyping and physical testing were introduced that compel teams to fully rely on a digital twin to develop their boat.

Register now to learn how and why digitalization has become paramount in the race to develop the next winning America’s Cup yacht.
