BMW Oracle Goes Mainstream Via ABC

Good Morning America – American ABC’s breakfast news program, has taken a ride on the BOR 90 foot trimaran. The story includes some great footage of the boat, a rather nervous Russell Coutts as the boat hits a ‘seal’ at speed, and some quotes from Larry Ellison and Dennis Conner.

A tale of “wind water and war”, the story describes the cup as being about “billionaire pride, high powered lawyers and high priced sailors of fortune.” The story finishes by saying that “it’s down to who has the better laywers at this point.” Throughout the story, the caption reads “fastest sailboat on earth” which may or may not be true, but it cerrtainly hasn’t set any ratified records that we know about.
