America's Cup: Oracle Team USA more foiling in San Fran - Am-Cam video
Mon, 1 Apr 2013
Oracle Team USA's revamped USA-17 was videoed again by an independent cameraman who captured the AC72 training on San Francisco Bay, this time in a series of seven videos covering two runs and a gybe.
In the set Oracle Team USA has an interesting day foiling showing a reasonable level of control, but not at the level of stability being displayed by Emirates Team NZ.
These videos also seem to be with the AC72 free-sailing, rather than point to point, or course racing.
From other yachts sailing in some of the video the breeze looks to be light to moderate, and the AC72 speed looks fast - based on the speed and attitude of the chase boats.
Like the previous videos from the same source, this video is best watched in HD quality.
