World Match Racing Champion backs Bermuda's bid as venue for the America's Cup

The Royal Gazette. By Colin Thompson.

Bermuda’s bid to host the 35 America’s Cup has received a ringing endorsement from one of the world’s top match racing skippers.

Taylor Canfield, the reigning Alpari World Match Racing Tour champion, says that the Great Sound will provide the perfect arena to showcase the foiling wing-sail catamarans that are capable of reaching speeds of up to 55 miles per hour.

“I think Bermuda would be a great venue to host the next America’s Cup,” Mr Canfield said. “Bermuda has great weather, it’s a beautiful place and I think it would be incredible racing in the Great Sound, which is like basically a natural stadium for the style of racing they are looking to do. I think it would be pretty cool to see it there.”
