The PRADA Cup – known as the “Challenger Selection Series” – will be held…
The Prada Cup
The Prada Cup starts tomorrow, and all eyes are on the Challengers, the teams who showed their hands at the America’s Cup World Series in December. Teams went away after the Series to work on their strategies, make improvements to their boats and use the learnings to improve on all levels – all this in line with claiming the right to challenge ‘Emirates Team New Zealand’ for the America’s Cup trophy. Shirley Robertson, Ken Read and Nathan Outteridge give their analysis on the Series.
The PRADA Cup starts on Friday, January 15. Three Challengers will compete with the winner qualifying to race against the America’s Cup Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand in the America’s Cup Match. Panerai is the official time keeper to the event. Debbie Hathway talks to Alessandro Ficarelli, product development director for Panerai, ahead of the Prada Cup.
