Video: BMW ORACLE Press Conference

Interest in the America’s Cup has never been higher? According to Larry Ellison, the fighting between the Defender and the Challenger is like two heavyweight boxers who hate each other before a fight.

How would that interest be translated into interest in future America’s Cups? Monohulls – but exciting monohulls, like the RC44, with lots of passing that is presented on TV in the right way.

This video comes from BMW ORACLE. We’re not sure how long it will be available or whether it will be replaced by more current videos, but here it is… the press conference is preceded by 5 minutes of video of USA sailing. Tom Ehman starts procedings at 4:41 into the clip.
