Match Race - America's Cup

Match Race - America's Cup

San Francisco Bay

This was the first year that the America's Cup boats used the radical new design proposed by Oracle's founder, Larry Ellison. With a decent wind, they could run up to 40-50 knots, making the races thrilling to watch as well as potentially dangerous for the crews. The early trials showcased match races such as this one between the US and Sweden to give the crews a chance to learn how to manage their new boats.
