Video: America’s Cup Documentary Part #5

December 18, 2017 | 3 Comments

“Part 5 of this 9-part documentary is all about the doors that were opened for Bermudians who stepped forward to be involved and for businesses that were tasked with delivering to a standard that they’d not previously experienced,” the ACBDA said.

“Creating opportunities for Bermudians was one of the key reasons for bringing the America’s Cup to Bermuda and those doors opened and continue to, before, during and after the America’s Cup.

“Part 5 features local videographer and producer Lamone Woods as he takes us through his experience and what he learned along the way.

“This is the story of a ‘naysayer’ who discovered a lot about his profession and himself through the experience, and who quickly recognized the personal benefit and life-long value of contributing toward Bermuda’s success with this event.

“This part speaks to one of the many legacy aspects of Bermuda’s America’s Cup – the social aspects that would not have occurred if Bermuda hadn’t been the Host Venue.”

    Wow and I was told that this was a waste of time and money. Now I am a believer the AC was good for Bermuda, it affected people and gave them experiences they would never have had, it brought jobs, it provided a stage for Bermudians to show the entire world what we can offer. I wish I had not listened to those voices in my head that said there was nothing in this for me.

    Another enjoyable episode. Really interesting to hear the opportunities that Mr. Woods had from “putting himself out there.” Also, that some young men who worked with him got exposure to using $400,000 equipment.

    That’s priceless! One of the many legacies from this event.

    In the beginning lots of us thought NAH, not going to happen. No way Bermuda can do this. Well, if you get a bunch of can do people together things happen, even with the crowd saying it will be a terrific waste of money.

    Well these can do people dragged the fence sitters over to their side & those who wanted involvement were off & flying.

    I hope lots of copies of this instalment were sent to Alaska Hall.
