Drummond gets his due

Design Director Mike Drummond is to be inducted into the America's Cup Hall of Fame in September. 

A statement announcing the list of inductees noted: "Mike Drummond has over 20 years America’s Cup experience as a design engineer, principal designer and navigator. He has been a part of four America’s Cup winning teams and continues to serve as BMW ORACLE Racing’s Design Director following victory with the American team in the 33rd America’s Cup."

Mike is one of five Kiwis going into the Hall of Fame this year, along with American Halsey Herreshoff.

Our hearty congratulations go out to Mike, on behalf of the team, for what can only be described as a well deserved honour.
