The Real Bananas. An Interview with Andy Green
Andy Green was lead Colour Commentator for the 2007 America’s Cup for US Network Versus and in 2009 for the America’s Cup World Feed. Along side Tucker Thompson, Andy Green is providing America’s Cup fans world wide with an exciting and up to the minute view of the 2013 America’s Cup.
While in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to catch a little bit of the 2013 Louis Vuitton round robin racing. While there, I witnessed Teams Oracle and Luna Rossa making their way around the course and by my last day in the city, all 4 were out practicing. Believe me, the AC72 is more than impressive and with the Golden Gate Bridge and rolling hills that line the bay, It’s a view that would take anyone’s breath away.
With the America’s Cup village set up at Marina Green and the America’s Cup Park at Pier 39, the spectating opportunities are vast and entertaining as well. Despite the fact that only one boat was sailing at a time, America’s Cup commentators, Andy Green and Tucker Thompson were able to provide the crowd with valuable information about the race, model of boat, and tid bits about what it’s like to sail on San Francisco Bay.
While visiting the Puma Lounge, I took a minute to chat with Andy Green, 11th Hour Racing Ambassador, to get his perspective on the 2013 America’s Cup.
