Quotes:

'Tough day in an offshore breeze. We fought hard and hung in there. More wind forecasted for tomorrow.' - Annie Haeger, 470.

'We had pretty light winds with a little bit of swell, so everybody's pretty much going the same speed. Little mistakes cost a lot.' - Charlie Buckingham, Laser.

'Last year things started to come together. Now I'm really racing, as opposed to focusing on certain sections of the race, or focusing on smaller technical things. I think I've taken a big jump forwards, and I'm happy.' - Farrah Hall, RS:X.

While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
