Photos from BMW Oracle's TP52 boat christening and sea trials

As we said earlier today, BMW Oracle took their brand new TP52 boat out for her first sea trials in Valencia. It also appears they had held a christening ceremony before that. Here are some photos, courtesy of the team and Gilles Martin Raget.
