Update 7 February 2017 Full report on the opening ceremony in Bermuda here.
They put the boat in the water, but.. There were no daggerboards to count towards the limit. Also no rudders for spies to see!
Watch a replay of the livestream:
Ben’s wife Georgie Ainslie does a Facebook livestream from Bermuda every Monday. This week we’ll see their base opening celebration – no doubt with the traditional Bermudian roof-wetting ceremony. They will “reveal” their AC Class race yacht, but will they put the boat in the water? Any daggerboards in the boat when it is afloat count towards the four board limit.
More video here of the celebrations, including the ceremonial champagne christening of the yacht and rum roof wetting of the base.
