It's been just over four months since the launch of INEOS Team UK and we've achieved a huge amount within this short timeframe.

We have officially entered the next edition of the America's Cup, representing Royal Yacht Squadron Racing, strengthened the team's challenge by recruiting some of the best America's Cup sailors and designers and revealed our first test boat, code named T5.

Last Friday [31st August] all the team's Skippers and the America's Cup community came together in Cowes for the first time in this edition. Emirates Team New Zealand CEO, Grant Dalton also made two announcements; sharing the AC36 Match Dates and also the race course. See below further info on both.

Meanwhile we are continuing our GC32 race programmes, with the senior team competing on the GC32 Racing Tour - coming away from the first two events with podium finishes - as well as the young INEOS Rebels competing on the Extreme Sailing Series, racing with Leigh McMillan as mentor. It's been great to see both programmes developing.

With just over 900 days to go until the 36th America's Cup match, we feel INEOS TEAM UK is in a really strong position. We have the right people, the backing of Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS, it's now down to us to execute a winning campaign.

Thank you for all your continued support.
