AC-45 - America's Cup World Series 2012 - Newport RI, USA - Day 2, 'Oracle Racing' dominate
The two teams of the Cup Defender 'Oracle Racing' dominated the scene yesterday in front of an enthusiastic public. James Spithill AUS and Russell Coutts NZL qualifiied for the Matchrace Final of Sunday. The Fleetrace sailed after the Matches had 'Oracle Team Spithill' as winner, overtaking the so far leading 'Team New Zealand' with Dean Barker NZL just before the finish line. Nevertheless, Barker and his team were at least satisfied to have their AC-45 cat fully functional again after the capsize and wing damage of Thursday. The video of the day and the report.
