America’s Cup : ORIENT EXPRESS takes maiden flight

Persistence and tenacity were the order of the day for Orient Express Racing Team on Thursday who were eventually rewarded by an early evening flight that radically step-changed their whole challenge for the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup. It was a long day, dogged by technical issues that every boat has on a maiden voyage, but they stuck to the task and got the job done, eventually docking-in as the sun disappeared over the Montjuic mountains with smiles broader than the Champs Elysee.
