Meanwhile in San Diego... BMW Oracle's BOR90 resumes sailing
BMW Oracle's BOR90 monster trimaran is back on the water and sailing in San Diego. Our on the spot friend, Goli, spotted them on Tuesday the first day they managed to sail. As per the official press release, seas were rough on Monday and the initially scheduled first sail was abandoned. Conditions were quite lighter on Tuesday and the trimaran sailed under approximately 10 knots of wind, going as far south as Mexico.
Sorry for the quality of the picture, but it was taken from a distance. As Goli jokingly states, unless you have a really fast tender, trying to follow the trimaran allows you some great whale watching. There is no way you can keep up with that.
