• 1st Look @ Oracle Team USA AC45 Turbo






    A 1st look at the just splashed AC 45 Turbo which splased in San Francisco Bay today,
    with all intents and purposes to get her out on her maiden voyage and official begin the
    testing phase as the team heads towards defending the Cup in 2017!







    The boats hull does indeed resemble Artemis racing but the similarities cease there.





    In the end, as sometimes is the case, the development gremlins reared their ugly heads
    and some technical issues kept 4 tied to the dock. With winds picking up from the West for the 1st time
    in some time, the sailing crew decided that Phantom Foiling is better than no foiling at all
    and launched the mini-mini trainers for a Presidential celebration!
