At the 2017 IBM Interconnect Conference session, “Driving Intelligence to the Edge in Powerboat Racing with Watson IoT Edge Analytics” presented by IBM’s Tom Sarasin and DataSkill’s CEO Nigel Hook, Hook switched hats by putting on his [virtual] crash helmet and announcing that this June, his offshore powerboat team and driver, Jay Johnson, will challenge the current endurance world record from Key West to Cuba and that they will also set a new, round trip world record in Hook’s #77 Lucas Oil SilverHook. This record, the Lucas Oil Ocean Cup – Key West to Cuba, will be the second Ocean Cup presented by Lucas Oil, the first established in 2013 as the Lucas Oil Ocean Cup – Golden Gate to Queen Mary.
