Marshall All-weather Cameras Help NYYC Train For The America’s Cup

Marshall CV503 & CV226 cameras boost NYYC American Magic’s ability to test and analyze new racing strategies and techniques on the Gulf of Mexico.

The 37th America's Cup will take place in Barcelona in 2024, with NYYC American Magic as the New York Yacht Club's (NYYC) challenger for the upcoming race. To help enhance training, the team sought assistance from Marshall Electronics cameras to capture unique footage for performance evaluations in extreme conditions.

Designed to withstand the effects of mother nature, the Marshall CV503-WP micro and CV226 lipstick cameras provide a professional solution for broadcast and proAV applications when conditions are less than perfect. Housed in a miniature IP67-rated body, the CV503-WP and CV226 offer flexible interchangeable lenses, easy remote adjust and match control, and protection from the elements. Not only are these all-weather POV cameras durable, but they also deliver detail, clarity and color-accurate shots from challenging positions. When training in salt-water environments at high speeds, it’s no surprise that the CV503-WP and CV226 were optimal for the NYYC American Magic training sessions.

Utilizing both standard and custom brackets, twelve CV503-WP cameras were installed throughout the layout deck and hull of the NYYC American Magic vessel, PATRIOT. PATRIOT is an “AC75”, also known as an America’s Cup Class 75, a 75ft foiling mono-hull sailboat. Marshall’s CV226 is used in smaller, more discreet places, undisclosed to protect competitive advantage. The team can then watch full videos and review highlights from their practice sessions, providing an innovative tool to learn from inside the hull.
