America's Cup Update With Member Matt Knighton


Chicago Yacht Club checked in with member Matt Knighton and SoftBank Team Japan as they compete in the America's Cup in Bermuda. Matt says, "The tension of the past 48 hours has been pretty high at the America's Cup. The epic conditions raced in Tuesday were spectacular to watch on the water - at times you could barely make the yachts out on the race course and we were getting deluged on the photo boats! Still had big grins on our faces. We were right next to ETNZ when they flipped and it was insanely fast when it happened. Just now ETNZ re-launched their boat though we suspect they'll be heavier than previously given how quickly and extensive the repairs were made. On SoftBank Team Japan, we're running the same setup we have been this whole week as the boat is the fastest on the water at the moment. Looking to put away the Swedes today to advance to Japan's first ever Challenger Finals berth."
