Astounding images of the America's Cup challenger. I rest my case...


An America’s Cup multihull match would be some spectacle. I rest my case with these thudding great images of BMW Oracle’s mega Death Star trimaran.

Look, the crew are wearing crash helmets and buoyancy vests, for God’s sake. YESSSS! This could be very, very exciting. Is the helmsman’s platform behind the aft beam so he won’t be the one decapitated if the traveller explodes or a turning block goes intercontinental?

I’m told with great authority that the boat has logged 32.5 knots in 8 knots of true wind. Hell’s bells, can that possibly be right? If so, case closed.
