The British America's Cup challenge trials boat (T6) incorporates Formula 1 technology and this was evident as it sped across the Bay of Palma. The British team, INEOS Britannia, are busy horning their skills ahead of the big race next year in Barcelona. Their Palma-based trials vessels will play a key role. The 40-foot test boat will play a vital role in the team’s programme through to the next America’s Cup, to be raced in Barcelona in the summer 2024. T6’s work will commence with an extensive testing period, primarily aimed at validating the team’s design tools and testing key componentry ahead of the design deadline to start the build of the team's race boat.
