Meanwhile in San Diego... BMW Oracle is getting ready for 2nd stage of trimaran tests

While Russell Coutts and most of the sailing team are in Auckland, training together with Emirates Team NZ and getting ready for the upcoming Louis Vuitton Pacific Series, BMW Oracle is preparing its monster 90ft trimaran across the Pacific in San Diego.

According to our on-the-spot friend Goli, the trimaran was launched a couple of days ago and it was masted on Wednesday. According to his unscientific observation, this mast appears to be longer than the previous one, used during the first sea trials late last year.

Sorry for the miscommunication... The mast was up yesterday but I couldn't take photos of it. The photos are from today.
