BMW Oracle Unveils New Weapon

BMW Oracle Racing unveiled their new trimaran in Anacortes today. It’s pretty, but the question is, will it have a dance partner? Unless the team is successful in its appeal, they won’t likely be sailing a Deed of Gift Challenge with it against Alinghi. The new 90- by 90-ft boat looks pretty conventional from the angle of the photo — basically like a stretched ORMA 60 rather than offshore multis of its size. Even if it never gets used in a Cup race, it looks like a damn cool toy — we wouldn’t mind seeing it sail on the Bay if things don’t work out overseas.
