In this episode of Point of SAIL, Principal Editor Adam Cort talks with Andrew Campbell, the “flight controller” for the New York Yacht Club’s American Magic challenge in the 36th America’s Cup down in Auckland New Zealand. In their conversation, they discuss everything from what it takes to get an AC75 full-foiling monohull airborne to the way Campbell’s experience as an Olympian in the Laser class prepared him for this exciting new kind of sailing.
