I did not even know it was going on!!!

AMAZING boats!! 22 knots of boat speed with a true wind of 2 knots!!!

Best of three races is disappointing though, It's over after 2 races.

Thanks Rich,

Jim

Outragous sailing machines - boring sail boat race

You could argue that this is the true spirt of the A/C deed of gift - a test of technology

But apart from some interesting starts andone close crossing in todays upwind leg - it was just a case ofBMW Oracle being faster

"the wing is king"

Would like to see then go back to Louis Vitton cup format -and more evenly matched boats
