Top of their game

It was a welcome sight to see Sir Ben Ainslie leading from the front out in a very placid and peaceful, if somewhat chilly Palma, Mallorca and bringing to this America’s Cup cycle a new acronym: “HMI”.

In an interview, Ainslie repeatedly referred to the “Human Machine Interface” – that crossover point where technology must relent to the human touch and vice versa.

It’s a catchy one that more than adequately sums up the technology being deployed in this Mercedes AMG-F1 Applied Science set-up that is rooted in data gathering and logical, positive steps being taken forward.

Little matter that INEOS Britannia are the last team to set a sail in this current winter testing schedule, the team looked more than relaxed out on the crystal-clear waters and the human interface, to adapt the phrase, between Giles Scott, Leigh MacMillan, Luke Parkinson and Ben himself looked like a team on top of their game.

“But we’re trying lots of different speeds, lots of different setups as you can imagine to get the data for the designers.”
