17 Takes Flight

Bay Area sailors have reported a number of sightings of Oracle Team USA’s AC72 17 since her relaunch on February 4. As the team makes up for time lost while waiting for their new wing sail, they’re not only honing their skills, but tweaking the boat in preparation for stiff summer winds and even stiffer competition. If you’re lucky enough to catch 17 or Artemis out on the water, we’d love to see any photos you get. In the meantime, check out this video from late last week of 17 foiling. If you don’t have four minutes to spare, jump to the two minute mark for the good stuff.
