AC72: Ellison's Dream Is Scariest Racing Yacht Yet: Video - Bloomberg: "As the America's Cup defender, Larry Ellison's team Oracle got to set the rules and choose the type of boat for this year's races. Bloomberg's Cory Johnson gives you an in-depth look at this year's boat. (Source: Bloomberg)"

America's Cup: Huge egos, fast boats - latimes.com" . . . . Truth is, it may be impossible for overreach, ego or even tragedy to kill the America's Cup. Its long history is replete with danger, plutocrats, weasel moves, finger-pointing and controversy. And when it comes to cup craziness, as one longtime sailor told the San Francisco Chronicle, there have been "personalities that make Ellison look like a piker." Over the weekend, Ellison's team got soaked. It lost three of four weekend races; then, in the last go-round Sunday, it grabbed a fragile lead and held it. The score is Kiwis 3, USA 1, and the next races are Tuesday. So far, the 2013 America's Cup . . . when its monster boats cross with a foot to spare, accelerating into thin air, it's also been one nifty leap in the never-ending quest to get somewhere fast, and win a trophy doing it."
