AC-50-Catamaran - Louis Vuitton Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 1

 AC-50-Catamaran - Louis Vuitton Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 1 The 35th America’s Cup finally started on Saturday (27th May) afternoon with the first six races of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers, and the action on the water more than certainly lived up to expectations, as excitement and drama aplenty unfolded on Bermuda’s Great Sound, in what proved a particularly positive first day for the Cup Defender 'Oracle Team USA'. All teams completed two races and 'Oracle' with Jimmy Spithill AUS was the only one to win both heats, the second one against 'Emirates Team New Zealand' with an 8 sec advantage only. After a major split, Spithill AUS was able to reduce a 20 sec deficit, create an inside overlap on Gate 5 and after luffing Burling NZL to almost a halt, the Kiwis were on the losing edge. Surprisingly, 'Artemis' with Nathan Outteridge AUS impressive in the tune-up races was defeated by 'Team BAR' with Ben Ainslie GBR. In their second race of the day, the Brits collided with the Japanes team 'Softbank' with Dean Barker NZL, were penalised and had no chance to come back in the short race. Both shore teams had much work during the past night.

America's Cup News - Hamilton BER - capsize of 'Oracle'

 America's Cup News - Hamilton BER - capsize of 'Oracle' The America's Cup begins in two weeks' time on the Bermudas and all six teams are preparing and testing intensively. Apparently going to the edge, they seem to still have some difficulties to handle the 15-meter high-tech machines. The 'Oracle' USA team with Jimmy Spithill AUS scored their second capsize yesterday, which is two more than any of the five other teams. Oracle Team USA capsized during a practice session focused on pre-start maneuvers, and the team reports how the boat was righted within three minutes and there were no injuries to the crew or damage to the boat. The Videos.
'Team New Zealand' with Peter Burling NZL and his 'cycling team' had a critical situation after a flopped gybe manoeuvre and produced a giant jump. The video.

AC-50-Catamarans - Test Races - Hamilton BER

 AC-50-Catamarans - Test Races - Hamilton BER Five of the six America’s Cup teams in Bermuda - 'Team New Zealand just arrived from Auckland NZL and did not yet race - held the second series of test races in their America’s Cup Class race boats – 17 races in all. But next week, Peter Burling NZL and his team will sail the next series of test races. Will the 'cycling grinders' of the Kiwis make the big difference, that is the big question ?
In windy conditions 'Artemis', the team with the seven Olympic Gold Medalists Nathan Outteridge AUS, Freddy Lööf SWE, Ian Percy GBR, Paul Goodison GBR, dominated the second test race period, winning all nine races, including four against 'Oracle'. 'Oracle' beat everyone else, including three wins against stablemates 'SoftBank Team Japan'. 'Team Japan' lost five races but beat 'Land Rover BAR' and 'Groupama Team France' once each. 'BAR' raced each team once, beating only the French. France raced each team once, losing to everyone. While 'BAR' seems to have speed problems, it is the boats' handling in manoeuvres making 'Groupama' loose the duels.
