Having overcome the odds and returned PATRIOT to the Prada Cup racecourse, American Magic faces down a must-win final series in Auckland. A fully (and quickly) repaired, re-wired and re-rigged U.S. AC75 and her crew fight to keep their dreams alive in the face of technical unknowns and an opponent that has been busy developing speed while PATRIOT was trapped in her shed. Across just two short days, the exhilarating, unforgiving and, sometimes, utterly heartbreaking nature of sailing at the highest level is on full display.
To all of American Magic's supporters back home and around the world, thank you for taking this journey with us. We saw, heard and felt your encouragement of our team during many hard hours of designing, boatbuilding, testing, and racing. We have been honored to be your Challenger.
