NO SECOND PLACE, a six-episode feature, produced in conjunction with Red Bull Media House and the America's Cup, offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the teams competing in the 2013 America´s Cup during the Summer of Racing in San Francisco.
This documentary-style production goes inside the teams, boat designs, training regimens, rules, the speed of the sport, strategy and teamwork, among other elements.
The first episode, titled Racing to Win, sets the scene by showcasing the stunning power of the new AC72s and the day-to-day life of the athletes as the America's Cup teams prepare for the culmination of the summer's racing in September.
ORACLE TEAM USA is preparing to defend its title, but challengers from New Zealand, Italy and Sweden are all gunning for the trophy too.
These elite sailors are constantly pushing the limits of both themselves and the AC72 and this opening show delivers perspective from team members as they break down what it will take to raise the America's Cup, the oldest active trophy in international sport. There are national bragging rights at stake and there is “No Second Place".
