Oracle Team USA have posted a video from the past two days in San Francisco when they have been conducting Defender Trials on the America's Cup course.

The video occasionally shows boat speeds - providing an interesting reference to the Challengers. Note the boats were sailing ahead of the Challengers competing in the Final of the Louis Vuitton Cup, and winds were lighter making any cursory speed comparison, a little fraught.

Also shows the incident when Boat 1, skippered by Ben Ainslie broke her rudder. The bottom video is the full race replays, top from Day 1, August 17, 2013 and the lower from Day 2, August 18,2013.
