VIDEO: Racing on TeamOrigin's new TP52


A taste of what its like sailing with our lads
Yet another new feature of the Audi MedCup this year is that average punters (such as the Editor of thedailysail) are able to sail on board the boats as a passenger at the back end not only during the practice races, as was the case in previous years, but during races themselves. We made use of this fine offer during the first day of racing to sail with Ben Ainslie, Mike Sanderson and the TeamOrigin posse - including Alinghi's Warwick Fleury and Juan Vila - when they promptly scored their best result of the regatta! If the footage is a little confusing - there were two starts and you get the full impression of just how aggressive they can be.
