The future home of the Cup?
Sir Keith Mills and TeamOrigin have grand designs on the America’s Cup. TeamOrigin will be challenging for the 33rd and 34th Cup races and have stated their ambition to bring the Auld Mug back to the UK for the first time since 1851.
Grand plans but one of the questions being asked is, should TeamOrigin win, where would the 35th Cup be based? Falmouth? Plymouth? The Solent or maybe West Scotland?
Maybe then, we should not read too much into the fact that TeamOrigin have just acquired new offices, their new base, in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
