"I wanted to let them know they'd just won the America's Cup," said Ellison. "And that's what I told them; that's what I said." The victory brought to a close the America's Cup in San Francisco.

The America’s Cup Sailors and their Flying Machines

America's Cup: How Oracle Saved the Cup - WSJ.com: "Oracle Team USA, the resilient crew of sailors who capped an epic comeback Wednesday to win the America's Cup, had spent hundreds of hours at sea over the past three years preparing to win this 162-year-old yacht race. But in the end, the victory came down to one of the oldest methods of rescue in team sports: calling a timeout to make adjustments. The defending America's Cup champion Oracle team, which is financed by billionaire Oracle Corp. founder Larry Ellison, struggled early in the final, falling behind Emirates Team New Zealand 8 races to 1. Then, something clicked. The Oracle boat began to dominate, erasing deficits on San Francisco Bay with ease and accelerating to win by sometimes yawning margins. It finished the comeback Wednesday to take the first-to-nine-wins series, 9-8...."

Larry Ellison glows under shine of America's Cup | Reuters: " . . . "This regatta has changed sailing forever," he beamed at a news conference, flanked by Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill and the 162-year-old trophy. Sailing has been in Ellison's blood for about as long as Oracle has. When he moved in the 1960s from Chicago to northern California, where he would eventually launch Oracle Corp, the future tycoon lived on a modest sailboat moored in Berkeley Marina until he ran out of money and had to sell it. In 1998, Ellison was aboard his maxi yacht Sayonara when its won the 630-nautical mile (724 mile) Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, which turned tragic when a storm killed six people and destroyed several boats. . . ."

After Comeback for the Ages, a Last Dash for America’s Cup - NYTimes.com: "The America’s Cup has produced no shortage of strange scenes in its 162 years. There have been capsizings, shattered masts and shattered spirits, but it has never produced a reversal of fortune quite like this year."

America's Cup a billionaire's game, John Bertrand says: "As for the current series, Team America on Wednesday levelled at 8-8 after winning seven races in a row and leaving the series to be decided by a sudden-death race this week. Bertrand said it appeared that the American's had benefited from intensive out-of-water testing during the series, which New Zealand had led 8-1. "The bottom line is that the Americans have found another gear," he said. "They've done a lot of work with the technology at night with all the super computers and so on and they are sailing, I suspect, a shade faster in these conditions.""

Oracle Sweeps Two Races to Tie America’s Cup - NYTimes.com: " . . . The America’s Cup is the most famous yachting race, both for its long history and for the powerful personalities that have been drawn to it: from the British tea merchant and graceful loser Thomas Lipton to the brash media mogul Ted Turner to Mr. Ellison, the goateed software billionaire who has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on this cup campaign. Despite its high profile, the America’s Cup has rarely been a close race. The majority of the matches between challenger and defender have been lopsided affairs short on close finishes and telegenic appeal. This Cup match is the longest in history — at 19 days — and also the closest in 30 years. In 1983, Australia II and Liberty faced off in another winner-take-all race off Newport, R.I., and the Australians came from behind to end the 132-year American winning streak. The Australians had rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win that series, 4-3, but no America’s Cup team and few teams in any sport have rallied from a deficit as big as the one that Oracle was facing last week. “The Cup has never seen anything like this,” said Bob Fisher, the 83-year-old writer and America’s Cup historian from Britain."

British sailor Jeff Cole feared drowned after falling from his yacht - Telegraph: "Experienced yachtsman Mr Cole, 62, set sail alone from Weymouth, Dorset, in his 27ft yacht Palamina bound for Swanage 20 miles away but never arrived. His wife Val raised the alarm when he failed to return home on Monday morning, around the same time his empty blue and green yacht washed up 142 miles away on Grenay beach near Dieppe in Normandy. Mr Cole was last sighted off St Alban's Head, three miles from Swanage, at 10am on Saturday morning. It is believed Mr Cole was motoring the yacht in light winds using an autopilot to steer when he suddenly fell overboard."

"Oracle is going to do it, all the way, take my word!" said Barbara Scrivner, a nurse in Napa who has watched the races from America's Cup Park -- one of a million fans who have now attended San Francisco's summer of sailing.

The race was officially postponed at 2:40 pm PT, the latest possible time to start a race. The wind was strong enough to race, but the direction was too far south from the desired direction of 230 degrees, just west of southwest."


Emirates Team New Zealand came within one nautical mile of winning the 34th America's Cup Friday, but then fell afoul of the 40-minute time limit. When Race 13 was re-sailed, the Kiwis were thwarted by a penalty and good speed from defender ORACLE TEAM USA who live to fight another day.

America's Cup History - AC UNCUT (published Wednesday September 18, 2013)

America’s Cup Seems All Over but the Sailing - NYTimes.com: "....“I’d love to see the Kiwis, the little underdogs, that tiny little country that has more sheep than people, take down Larry Ellison,” said Mike Altman, a 35-year-old American from San Francisco who was following the racing from America’s Cup Park on Wednesday. Altman added: “Larry’s got a big ego, and you know I feel like he’s not necessarily the most well-liked business leader around the area. He hasn’t made a lot of friends. He’s known as pretty brash. A lot of people see this as his own personal party, his own little ego trip, and it’s not something that I think a lot of people were clamoring for, to have an America’s Cup here.” Now it is likely to soon be gone, possibly never to return. In 162 years of the Cup, only eight sites have staged the races. One of them was Auckland, New Zealand, in 2000 and 2003..."
