BMW ORACLE Racing back on the water in San Diego.

08/07/2009

BMW ORACLE Racing back on the water in San Diego.

BMW ORACLE Racing today launched their trimaran in San Diego as the team prepares to sea trial the 90-foot by 90-foot high-tech racing machine. 

The mast will be installed dockside and the boat will be load-tested before the huge multihull is tested by the crew in the waters off Point Loma. "We are really excited to get out on the water," said helmsman James Spithill (AUS). "We still have plenty to do to complete sea trials and be ready for the America’s Cup in February so every day counts. It is only seven months until the America’s Cup so we are now in the home stretch."
BMW ORACLE Racing is the Challenger for the 33rd America’s Cup. The team will meet the Swiss Defender Alinghi in a best two-of-three head-to-head duel starting February 8. The venue for the competition will be named by the Defender by August 8.

The team will test the trimaran in San Diego this summer.

"This is cutting-edge technology and sailing. We look forward to testing how fast is fast," said Spithill.
