The America’s Cup Jubilee was an extraordinary event, not just for those taking part but for the many spectators. The images and stories were stunning.
APP Broadcast are producing the America’s Cup Jubilee Official Film, an insider’s guide to the most spectacular regatta of modern times.
APP Broadcast gained privileged access to the heart of the event from exclusive interviews with Olin Stephens, Russell Coutts and Bill Koch, John Bertrand and Dean Barker, to on board footage from Endeavour, Australia II, GBR 52 as well as many other leading boats.
On the Race Around the Island APP were in the air and afloat at key vantage points, capturing the sight of Stealth steaming around in near record time, the J Class dwarfing the fleet, the replica of America rounding the Nab Light Vessel and the massed fleet converging on the turning mark off The Needles.
There was the America’s Cup Jubilee Ball – more than 2,000 people entertained in the historical setting of Osborne House, culminating in the Phillips Auction where Bill Koch fended off all comers and bid £310,000 for 31 bottles of vintage Hennessy cognac.
It was a vintage regatta and the Official Film will be vintage stuff from the first moment the Maori dancers arrive at dawn with the Cup itself to the final finishing gun when the Prada sailors celebrate a breathtaking victory.

- Stunning aerial and multi-camera footage from the historic Race Around the Island
