A look back at the honor of hosting America's Cup and Oracle Team USA as we meet with sponsors and brand to bring the #Davantithriller series to life in book and film form.


Read about their champion inspiration and in-game focus.



It's been an outstanding week getting ready to welcome sailing fans and visitors for America's Cup, the first on fresh water, held on Lake Michigan in Chicago.


The winds were fantastic on Friday and light on Saturday, but today we're getting ready for #SuperSunday with excellent conditions and double points!


I'm grateful for incredible POVs for the races. Here's a clip from a conversation with Matt and Joey on competition, capsizing and hanging on:


 We also had a chance to talk about my upcoming motivational book and thrillers series!

[UPDATE: Two leadership and branding books are out now. Thriller series and film in negotiation!]

 Artemis Racing of Sweden won the Louis Vuitton America's Cup world series in Chicago.

Congrats & skål!



It was exciting to connect with many America's Cup, sailing and gourmet friends over the weekend races and festivities. We're getting close to book launch so I'll sign off for now. Here's to brighter horizons!
