Sir Russell Coutts is very positive and optimistic that the negativity in the Bermudian spirit will soon die down and Bermuda will overcome all hurdles to successfully conduct the 35th edition of the America’s Cup. There are threats to the safe conduct of the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda and the threat is from the Bermuda Industrial Union.

He believes that the whole of Bermuda will unite to make the AC a rousing success.
