AC72's, Sweden Cup, Kieler Woche and more...

Aerials 2 Boats Testing / SFO June Testing Session / ORACLE TEAM USA / San Francisco (USA)  Guilain Grenier Oracle Team USA©
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.

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.
