ORACLE TEAM USA's first AC72 sail (video)


ORACLE TEAM USA's first AC72 sail (video)
ORACLE TEAM USA's first AC72, 17, sailed for the first time last month. The initial commissioning and testing process was started with the boat displaying an early demonstration of its performance potential. After two hours, the session was stopped due to a daggerboard failure in the starboard hull. Boat and crew returned safely to the team's Pier 80 base. The team is now assessing its options to resume testing as soon as possible. About the Americas Cup: The America's Cup is without a doubt the most difficult trophy in sport to win. In the more than 150 years since that first race off England, only four nations have won what is often called the "oldest trophy in international sport." For some perspective, consider that there had been nine contests for the America's Cup before the first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896.
