America's Cup Started!

Wake up Americans...the fight against the Swiss is on! Finally after years of court battle, the boats are right now fighting against each other in the first Regatta in spain. Interestingly for us "Ferraristi's" is the fact how much carbon has been used to build these spectacular boats.

Below the and the live video stream link:

Hope it works for you guys.

(Go Switzerland, go)

It seems the Swiss Catamaran is without a chance against the US Trimaran. Interestingly, both concepts have been build from blank paper and now body could really know how it will compare to the other. In that respect, the live reporter said its amaizing how nearby still both boats are to each other. Invention of computer simulation maybe the main reason.

Its amazing the elegance of those sailboats. They are the first boats sailing on certian wind angles faster than the wind speed itself...strange !

The America's cup, you've gotta love it! It's too bad that I won't be able to see any of it over here in Africa. They are spectacular yacht races.

Personally, I think the J-class are even crazier, these magnificent machines from the crazy 1930's. Closely related to the America's Cup, of course, the race was the primary force behind this class. Beautiful! And dangerous - no railings! What I need is an old villa on the Riviera, a J-class moored in the bay, a Riva shuttle to get there, and an 8C-2300 to get to the Riva!

But - eh - is this Ferrari discussion?

Thanks for the reminder. Here is a pic of Al, (360 Modena) training for the cup. I do believe that is me in the yellow shirt at well. Can't wait for summer in annapolis. Bruce farr, a good friend of al's has designed a few previous america's cup boats as well.

Wow, great pictures. You guys know what your doing well !

Yes the U.S. team beat Switzerland in a great manner. It was interesting to see the 2 very different concepts at work, especially from a mainly technical point of view. I simply can't imagine, how the Swiss should be able to make up that obviously huge speed ability difference in the 2nd race on Sunday.

@Onno: Well, Ferrarilife is also appreciating other great endaveours in life

And the cup comes home where it belongs. Too bad it's not on the right coast.

Yes, congrats to USA! Very well done. I was suprised, actually, that it was only a best of 3 match. If you go through all the trouble, wouldn't you want to have a bit of competition sailing before you retire the ship?

BTW - I'm not a fan of multihulls. Single hulls are so much better looking!
