USA Wins America’s Cup!


Team Oracle just won the America’s Cup on San Francisco Bay! After being down seven races behind Team New Zealand, the American Team made the biggest come back in the entire 162 years of the history of the sailing race. Whew!

My family and I went out last week to watch the races in person and almost witnessed one of the race-boats capsize at high speed. Thankfully everyone was alright, but it was easily one of the most incredible sailing races I’ve ever seen. Now that the San Francisco Golden Gate Yacht Club has won the Cup again for Team USA the next America’s Cup races will once again take place here in San Francisco in 2016. To the winner go the spoils.

Team New Zealand sailed a great race though, and very nearly beat the American Team in what was easily the closest America’s Cup race in the last half century. So mark your calendars, and I look forward to seeing you all out here for the next America’s Cup come 2016!
