Don’t miss this Saturday’s (29 December) BBC 1 Grandstand which features the opening of the GBR America’s Cup Challenge base in New Zealand.

The programme, which starts at 1325, features interviews with GBR Chairman Peter Harrison, General Manager David Barnes, Sailing Manager Ian Walker and Design Coordinator Derek Clark – as well as Ben Ainslie who is sailing for the American OneWorld team.
