British America's Cup boat GBR 75 on show later this year

National Boat Shows have announced that TeamOrigin, the British sailing team intending to bid for the 33rd and 34th America’s Cup, will have their new training boat ‘GBR 75’ on show at this year’s Southampton Boat Show. The team will also be present at the ExCel show next January.

Syndicate head Sir Keith Mills said: ‘Featuring our first fully liveried TeamOrigin race training boat at the Southampton Boat Show is the perfect platform to gain the public’s support behind our bid for sailing glory.’

The TeamOrigin race boat will be moored on the Hydropool marina for the first three days of Southampton Boat Show, and visitors will be able to meet the crew.
