Battle of the boats

How technology won the America’s Cup: this 1 hour IPENZ lecture, hosted by Beca, was presented by two America’s Cup engineers who explained the technology behind the revolutionary AC72 boats and how Oracle made a miraculous comeback from 8-1 to 9-8, clawing back Team New Zealand’s lead to defy the odds and win.

Hear about the lessons learnt from each team in the 2013 America’s Cup series, rated as the best ever by rival Kiwi design engineers Andy Kensington, from Emirates Team New Zealand, and Neil Wilkinson, from Oracle Team US, as they toured the country visiting Whangarei, Tauranga, Dunedin, New Plymouth, Auckland and Napier in this IPENZ Centenary lecture from May 06 to May 22 2014.
