What’s the big deal with the America’s Cup? Why do people care so much, and what makes this race so special? Jack Griffin shares the history of the Cup, what it takes to win the race, and what to expect at this year’s event in Bermuda. Griffin is Editor of Cup Experience, a unique newsletter and website dedicated to audience engagement for the America’s Cup. His book, Turning the Tide, provides the definitive account of how Oracle Team USA mounted their comeback to defend the America’s Cup in San Francisco in 2013. Jack is also the guest curator for our upcoming exhibition, Speed and Innovation in the America’s Cup.
