INEOS Team UK back out on the water

After three months off the water due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Britannia is flying once again.

The past few months have been a difficult time for the team, as it has been for everyone around the world. Trying to manage the risks and dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic whilst having to deal with the issues around the America’s Cup team has been a challenge.

This week, after over three months on land, we have been delighted to be able to get back to business and back out on the water. In the ongoing situation, however, it’s very important that we minimise the risk to our team and the community wherever we can, and that is why we have put together a new strategy we call Zero COVID days.

The strategy covers everything from how we behave in our home lives through to how we operate in our base and in our community. Hygiene is a big focus, for example, and we have given all team members INEOS hand sanitisers and Henri-Lloyd face coverings. Alongside that are our team’s social distancing policies which we can now monitor closely through social distancing devices we are using through a new partnership with a company called Mafic.

These Mafic devices are wearables that can be attached to your arm or our Spinlock PFD (personal flotation device) that help us identify any hotspots where people are getting close to the two-metre social distancing barrier and ultimately help us make sure we are as safe as we can be in our working practices.
