AC History: Peter Burling arrives on the AC scene – 2012 video with Ainslie, Barker, Burling, Coutts

SAN FRANCISCO – This video is from October 2012 when Peter Burling, fresh from winning a silver medal at the London Games, was introduced to the media by your Ed. along with the other skippers just prior to the October 2012 AC34 World Series regatta in SF. By far the youngest skipper at the event at age 21, Pete was recruited at the last minute by Team Korea to be their skipper after their previous helm had a less than stellar regatta at the August World Series event. Making a cameo appearance sitting at the table behind Peter is the "dean" of the yachting journalists, the esteemed Bob Fisher (GBR).
