America's Cup: AC45 Closeup - Pre Flight Check and Launch + Video

Artemis Racing prepare to leave for a Practice Session

Sail-World's America's Cup Editor, Richard Gladwell, presents this 'fly on the wall' and commentary on the load and launch process required to get an AC45 off the dock following Artemis Racing as they prepare to launch their AC45 before a practice session.

For those who haven't seen the AC45s launch first hand, this is a good option, and we don't expect to get this close with the AC72's
