See what Tom Slingsby had to say about Tuesday's unveiling of our @americascup class race yacht...#repost from @tslingsby -  We had a great launch party last night for our AC35 race boat. No bicycle pedestals on our boat. We were back and forth for months on this concept. The gain is possibly better power output on the pumps and the loss (in our opinion) is the dynamics of getting in and out of the cockpit quickly and efficiently and also a possible aerodynamic loss. It really was a  close call on what to choose. I guess in June we will see who got it right! @oracleteamusa 📸 @carlo.borlenghi
