America's Cup Sailing Contest

Uploaded: Sep 27, 2013

I go sailing from time to time in the SF Bay, actually have taken lessons.

I was completely in awe of these two cats that competed in the final competitions in the tie breaker. The design for these crafts had them flying with small rudders navigating the water, while neither of the cats have their hulls in the water. A site to behold.

There also was a great deal of strategy. Team USA could not have come back from a major win-loss gap of 8-1 to take the win without some very smart thinking between races.

Work commitments prevented me from attending the actual event. And I was delighted to find some sites on line that do a great job showing the visuals. Very dynamic.

Take a look!
