America's Cup

The spectacle of the America's Cup concluded in September in San Francisco Bay, bringing to a close the high stakes game of capital enterprise and extreme sporting. In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill will argue that extreme sport is no sport at all and will give examples of recreational sea experience the world over that showcase traditional vessels and maritime culture for everyone,  as a means to provide access and entertainment while building community.
