AC72s training in the foggy bay

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series.

Today was the first time Oracle raced their two AC72’s in the bay. At one point I was able to capture a sequence where one of their boats made a quick turn while foiling (edit: that’s called gybing on foils)! This is just amazing to see.

If you like to see this animated gif a little bit bigger, here’s the link.

Besides Oracle, Emirates Team New Zealand was also sailing their AC72 and Artemis showed up with their two AC45s as well. Below is a selection of shots that show amazing boats and today’s gorgeous weather with clouds hanging over the Golden Gate Bridge.

    1. Thank you, Tony. I captured this sequence of images and then wondered what to do with them. So there came the idea of using a GIF animation. First time I tried it, hopefully not the last one…
