America's Cup- The Kids are all right - Opti sailors taste the AC45

by Gilles Martin-Raget on 30 Apr 2011
New Zealand Optimist team line up for the big day out on an AC45 Gilles Martin-Raget/Oracle

After the Toyota National Optimist Championships concluded in Auckland, New Zealand on Easter Monday, the five sailors in the New Zealand team were invited out for a sail on Oracle racing's AC45. A good picture speaks a thousand words, but the looks on these young sailor's faces speak volumes.

Does it get any better than this when you are a kid?

We don't think so.
