As winter is approaching in the United Kingdom, the British Challenger for the America’s Cup, the INEOS TEAM UK will be shifting its base to Cagliari which is the capital of Sardinia situated in Italy. Earlier, their base was in Portsmouth. The team will get permission for continuing their testing program and training for the upcoming America’s Cup in 2021. They will also be eligible to be onsite earlier for the first series event of America’s Cup to be held in Cagliari from 23rd to 26th April next year.
