Ken Read’s predictions for the 35th America’s Cup

Ken Read’s predictions for the 35th America’s Cup

Bermuda will host the 35th America’s Cup from May 26 to June 27, with six top teams battling it out to win sport’s oldest prize. As the first race looms, we ask Ken Read, ACTV commentator, president of North Sails and two-time America’s Cup helmsman, to give his predictions…

It’s been said before, but it’s still true: the fastest boat always wins!
