Just a quick update from your local America’s Cup enthusiast…

NZ has taken the cup, beating the Aussie crewed (8 aboard) USA Oracle!

The Kiwis can decide were and what the cup will be sailed in, as is there right under the rules.

Italian team Luna Rossa has been involved with the Kiwis secretly, with the owner and his yacht club in Sardinia being the challengers on notice. First to get in after race.

Usually waiting at finish line with an envelope!

As Ian Murray did in San Fransisco and later pulled out.

So may be sailed in Sardinia but probably in Auckland which would be great – lets GO!

Some say that it’s back to mono hulls as the cats are amazing but not something most can relate to as a sail boat.

Team NZs boat was controlled and flown as a Fighter Jet is – that’s how they won, on technology and great sailing.

So it may be back to the future and be sailed in Super Twelves as shown below.

Sailing Magazine wrote a great article on the topic – which you can check out by clicking here.
