Video: America’s Cup Documentary Part #6

December 19, 2017 | 5 Comments

“A unique aspect of the America’s Cup in Bermuda was that the racing teams, their support crew and their families came to live in Bermuda for an extended period, well before the event. They integrated into our community taking part in local events and supporting many charities, organisations and social programs”, the ACBDA said.

“Of course the AC Endeavour Programme and the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup – TeamBDA were the most memorable. Take a walk down memory lane and re-live the excitement of TeamBDA winning their race in the finals.

“In Part 6 of this documentary series, we describe the significant community impact of the America’s Cup and hear from just a few of the many people who benefited.

“Dimitri Stevens, an accomplished sailor and the helmsman of TeamBDA shares his experience of coaching young kids in the Endeavour Program and he speaks to the importance of Bermuda’s school children learning to enjoying water sports.

“Narrated by Bermuda’s most acclaimed actor, centenarian Earl Cameron, CBE, this retrospective documentary demonstrates the national pride and lasting positive impact of Bermuda hosting the 35th America’s Cup.”

    The 66 million investment into the AC was worth every penny.
    The long term effect on tourism from the AC will impact us for years to come.

    “In Part 6 of this documentary series, we describe the significant community impact of the America’s Cup and hear from just a few of the many people who benefited.”

    This must be propaganda from somewhere, because the official position of the PLP Government is that the America’s Cup was a waste of taxpayers’ money to benefit a few foreign billionaires and some Bermuda millionaires.

    The AC Endeavour Programme is a wonderful legacy gift to Bermuda.

    It has created access to sailing for many members of our community who historically had no pathway nor invitation to learn how to sail and the results are heartening.

    It is lovely to know more Bermudians are finding enjoyment on our waters as a result of this investment.

    Thank you to all involved.

    Another enjoyable episode. Love the smiles on the Endeavour kids faces and reliving Team BDA taking the first race.

    Two legacies from a world event all of us who attended definitely won’t forget soon.
