Harold Cudmore who hails from Cork, Ireland spoke with Louay Habib for an hour-long show focusing on the Admiral's Cup for the 11th edition of the RORC Time Over Distance Series.

In the 1970s Cudmore was one of the first sailors to travel the world to compete at international yachting events, especially match racing. In 1986 he became the first non-American to win the Congressional Cup. In the America's Cup Cudmore was heavily involved in several British campaigns during the 1980s. He was also head coach of the 1992 winning campaign America3 and coach for the all-women's campaign in 1995.

Between 1977 and 1993 Cudmore took part in seven editions of the Admiral's Cup - Racing for Ireland, Great Britain, Australia and Germany. In 1989 he was the mastermind ashore for the victorious British team. To this day, Harold Cudmore travels the world, racing in a wide variety of inshore and offshore events. His amazing abilities as a yachtsman are only matched by his talent for storytelling!

Next week (Friday 19 June): Jon Holt/Greig City Academy and members of GCA Sailing Club/Scaramouche Sailing Trust.

You can also watch the RORC Lockdown Series interviews live every week on RORC Facebook page, Friday at 1700 BST

Each week on RORC Facebook Live, Louay Habib interviews sailors and masters of their art in the world of yachting, exploring epic races, top pro-techniques, and much, much more. Interactive discussions with those at the top of their field, together with videos, pictures and a chance to listen to their epic stories. Time Over Distance is designed to inform and entertain any serious offshore sailor. We hope that the RORC Time Over Distance library might become a highly regarded resource for years to come.
