AC72 Launching This Week

On the heels of the highly successful AC World Series last week, Oracle Team USA’s AC72, the monster cat that will be used for the America’s Cup Finals next year, is slated to be launched this week (some say tomorrow). The team has scheduled a media day on Friday when they plan to take the boat out on her first test sail. If we’re not at the media day, you can be sure to find us out on the water to watch the beast take her first steps. Hope to see you out there!

When we showed up at the California YC in Marina del Rey with Profigate a couple of weeks ago to give a presentation, we were assigned the guest dock, which just happened to be about five slips down from the 72-ft Deerfoot II.
Sailors are a notoriously innovative bunch. There are few other applications where the use of duct tape and bailing wire seems to work quite as well — or last as long — as on a sailboat.
