America's Cup Uncovered - Episode 14 (video)



America's Cup Uncovered - Episode 14 (video)

All eyes are on San Diego as we countdown to AC World Series Nov 12 - 20. But first, we make a visit to Brittany, France for some cross training with Loick Peyron and France's Energy Team. As the sun sets over France, the day is just beginning in San Diego; we tour Broadway and Navy Piers and check out the course area with AC Commentator Annie Gardner. Back in Europe we visit Green Comm Racing's Vasilji Zbogar at his home in Slovenia. Vasilji shows us his Olympic sailing medals, and takes us out for a sail in trying conditions. October was a busy month for San Francisco; Oracle OpenWorld, the biggest technology show on the planet overlapped with Fleet Week. All good preparation for when the world's best sailors come to San Francisco Bay in 2012 and 2013.
