Video: A tour of the Darsena


We take the RIB tour to see latest developments at the America's Cup marina
With the America's Cup Acts happening here this year followed by the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series and then the America's Cup proper in 2007, so considerable development has been taking place in the Darsena marina, home to the America's Cup class yachts. On Monday we went out on a RIB with Julian Hocken and Canadian Cup guru Peter Rusch (our thanks to both) to get the guided tour of what is going on in the harbour, to the newly opened bases, the titanic bases of the 'big four', the bases where there is much activity and wjhere there isn't. In this first clip we take a look at the bases and the new superyacht dock and have a bit of a gossip.
