    America’s Cup: Do You Believe In Miracles?

    ” Thousands of spectators gathered on the shores of San Francisco Bay early Wednesday, where they scrambled for vantage points to watch Oracle Team USA capture the America’s Cup in one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.

    The winner-take-all race against challenger Emirates Team New Zealand sent roars of jubilation among the race crowd after Team USA captured sailing’s most prestigious and best known race.

    “You couldn’t have written a better comeback story,” says Jason Deitch, 44, from nearby Mill Valley, Calif., who cheered from shore on Marina Green. The social media consultant predicts a big impact from Oracle’s huge win.

    “I think we are seeing the emergence of a new sport for Americans to cheer about,” he says. “It’s technology meets tradition. There will be a lot more commercial interest, too.’‘ ”

    America’s Cup: Ben Ainslie’s USA And NZ Set For Thrilling Decider





    ” Briton Sir Ben Ainslie and his Oracle Team USA are one win away from one of the great sporting comebacks as the America’s Cup goes into a winner-takes-all final race on Wednesday.

    Having been docked two points before the regatta began, Oracle were 8-1 down but on Tuesday sealed their sixth and seventh straight wins to level at 8-8.

    The event goes to a decider for only the third time in its 162-year history.

    “You have to approach it like every other race,” said Ainslie.

    The four-time Olympic champion, 36,, took over the key tactician role from veteran John Kostecki with the score 4-1, but Oracle Team USA has since won nine times in 13 races, which are being held in San Francisco.

    Oracle have won 10 races in all but were penalised two points before the regatta began for illegal modifications to their smaller 45ft catamaran in the warm-up series.”

    The Wind Gods


    ” An America’s Cup film? Great, they are few and far between! But this is a far cry from the Francis Ford Coppola classic America’s Cup film Wind. This trailer is for The Wind Gods, the story of the 33rd America’s Cup race, and while it is more documentary, it definitely hypes up the drama!

    I particularly love Jeremy Irons’ voiceover. “There is no second place, in competition, in the game of life,” he states with all the drama of a first rate actor. “First place is all there is.” ”

    The Good That Yachting Does Do And Can Do




    “Ports Of Cause (POC), the brainchild of Joyce Clear of Clear Group International, is an innovative superyacht initiative designed to promote yachting and to “give back.”

    At the heart of the concept is a newly refurbished yacht, the 116-foot classic yacht Highlander, which will serves as an ambassador of the superyacht community and support worthwhile charities through events and other initiatives.

    Since coming up with the idea, Clear has worked tirelessly to find a flagship and make Ports of Cause a reality. Her hard work paid off. POC’s flagship is the renowned Highlander, a 1967-built Feadship motoryacht now owned by Victor Muller, CEO of Dutch super car manufacturer Spyker NV. Highlander was built for Malcolm Forbes, who used the yacht for business and pleasure. The yacht traveled the world, entertaining kings and queens, presidents, business moguls, movie stars and celebrities “
