America’s Cup San Francisco –Last training with the AC72

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

The teams are getting ready for the 2nd AC World Series race in San Francisco. Just a few days left until the start.

Team Oracle’s AC72 made a guest appearance today. Compared to the already big AC45s, the AC72 is just huge. I am looking forward to see more of them in the SF bay.

Here are just a few shots I took late this afternoon when most of the boats already had called it a day. Click on any image for a slideshow.


The two boats here are relatively close. It shows well that the AC72 is much bigger than the AC45.

I got this shot far away and had to zoom a bit to have something to show. But what it shows…. Team Oracle’s AC72 indeed is ‘flying’. Team Oracle, please next time a bit closer to the shore… or could I hitch a ride on the chase boat?

Apart of Oracle, China Team was sailing until late in the afternoon too. I am happy for them that they have an additional sponsor (Hilton).
