Oracle Team USA sailed their two AC72's on San Francisco Bay today, in the start of a two week testing program.

Both of the team’s AC72 racing yachts spent the morning running through various tests and boat set-ups as they maneuvered around the San Francisco Bay.


'It was the best day of the campaign,' said skipper Jimmy Spithill. 'It has taken a lot of work and a lot of energy to get two full crews up to this level, to operationally get to this level, to launch and have two boats ready to go. A lot of credit goes to the shore and build teams.

'Now, we have two competitive boats,' Spithill continued. 'That’s a good position to be in as you never know what’s around the corner. For us to have two boats, with two race wings, and have a lot of depth in our sailing team, it certainly gives us a chance to produce more boat speed. And, from a racing point of view, it allows us to really learn the race track and build a playbook.'

John Navas was bayside and captured the action. Longer video available later in the day. Sail-World will be interviewing Jimmy in a few hours times, so we will have much more indepth news tomorrow.

On the opening day of fleet racing at the RC44 Sweden Cup, tricky conditions saw no one team able to finish in the top half of the leaderboard in all three races. There were race wins for Team Italia, Artemis Racing and Team Aqua, but the most consistent performers of the day were John Bassadone and Vasco Vascotto onboard Peninsula Petroleum. The Gibraltar based team scored two seconds and a seventh to take a two point overnight lead over Artemis Racing. Racing continues in Marstrand until Saturday 29th June. Stay tuned for daily reports.

At Kieler Woche, one medal after another has been claimed in the Paralympic class 2.4mR and then in the eight Olympic classes. Great Britain gained three gold medals and Germany claimed three with Spain, Austria and Finland claiming once each. For the finish of the Olympic classes, Philipp Buhl (Sonthofen) defended his title in the Laser and relegated the two-time Olympic winner Robert Scheidt (Brazil) and Jesper Staelheim (Sweden) to the fringe.

Next month the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will commence and South African Sailing have now revealed a team of seven to compete in the event.

Alex Burger, Brent Hayward, Daniel Lawrence, Marcello Marcia, Ryan Robinson, Dominic van der Walt and David Wilson will be flying the flag for South Africa in Limassol, Cyprus under the guidance of coach Rob Holden from 13 - 20 July in the world's leading youth sailing event which has been held every year since 1971.

'We congratulate this team on their selection and wish them the best of luck at the event,' said Chairman of South African Sailing Mike Dixon. 'The youth team obviously represent the future of sailing in this country and we are excited to see what they can do as they compete on the world stage.'
