Taking the pain out of chase

Being in the chase boat team for an America’s Cup team can be both exciting but gruelling with all the attendant side effects of body fatigue, back pain and injury from constant impact. The new partnership between the American Magic racing team and SHOCK-WBV is set to take the pain out of chase.

Suspension seats and OMEGA seat inserts are among the first batch of equipment shipped out to the American Magic base in Pensacola USA. Immediate fit out will see the equipment in operation on the chase boat fleet later this month.

“American Magic set out to find the best performance shock mitigation seat on the market to upgrade our chase fleet for the 37th Cup and found that in SHOCK-WBV’s new LT Series seats,” explained Dustin Burrell, American Magic chase fleet captain.

“We sought a seat to give our team the best platform to perform their roles at 60 knots even in large sea states. Comfort and crew safety is a priority for the 25 crew members on the water daily, and WBV has answered that.”

Burrell explained that by using the Omega Shock mitigating seat insert, the newly designed LT Series suspension seat and Fox shock technology, American Magic crews will be able to spend multiple hours a day on the water without suffering body fatigue, back pain or repetitive injury.

“It is fantastic to be working with American Magic in their pursuit of winning the 37th America’s Cup”, said Daniel Henderson, sales director at Sea Sure SHOCK-WBV. “To have all three parts of our product range selected by American Magic for their chase boat fleet shows that we have the range of products that is needed to cater for different seating types onboard high-speed craft such as Chase 1.”

SHOCK-WBVs latest LT Series is manufactured under licence by Sea Sure Ltd, in the UK.
