BMW Oracle's BOR90 first sail with the wing
The BOR 90 was taken for a spin in San Diego on Tuesday with her revolutionary wing sail, just a few days after suffering a serious dismasting incident. From what one could observe from the live webcam, courtesy of FOX 5 San Diego, it appears everything went alright. The official press release will certainly come when everyone's asleep in Valencia but in the meantime, here's the first picture from no other than Gilles Martin-Raget, the team's star photographer.
Would I be lying if I said I can't wait to see the two giant multihulls racing off the beach of Malvarosa in three months?
