If I Could Be Anywhere Else Today, It Would Be At The Americas Cup In San Francisco

The boats of The Americas Cup don’t float, they fly. On hydrofoils that lift the carbon fiber vessels out of the water to race at speeds almost 3 times faster than the wind that pushes them.

It is a combination of beauty, science, sport, grace, tragedy, technology and high finance. Each team has invested more than $100 Million to win this race that starts today on San Francisco Bay.

Oh to be able to fire up the jet and go see this race. The Emmerates Team New Zeland is the main contender up against the Oracle Team USA defending champion. Check out the video of their practice sessions here.
