Adventures Weekly on 5 November 2020 included a special show line up with the entire Stars + Stripes Team USA; Taylor Canfield, Mike Buckley, Victor Diaz de Leon, Erik Shampain and Michael Menninger, fresh from their win in the 70th Bermuda Gold Cup, which this year was also the World Championship for the World Match Racing Tour. The whole team joined Nic to chat about their latest win (their third Bermuda Gold Cup and second World Championship), their team strengths, the “new normal” and how the event was able to go ahead in Bermuda, social justice, and the incredible meaning and heritage of their team name Stars and Stripes.
Tomorrow, Nic will be chatting with Jessica Watson, who in 2010 became the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world in her continued 2020 series catching up with “die hards” in the sport of sailing. This should also be an interesting chat ahead of the start of the Vendee Globe race in just a few days time.
Don’t forget our weekly themed trivia competition brought to you by Pantaenius Yacht Insurance! Each weekly winner, who along with winning a prize pack from Pantaenius, will also join each of the winners of the weekly video competition for our major prize draw in December, while we are in Hobart (hooray!) at the end of 2020!
