Description
Oracle Team USA's 72 foot America's Cup catamaran on San Francisco Bay during a training run leading up to the 34th America's Cup race in September.

These catamarans are designed especially for the America's Cup. They are 72 feet long with 130 foot solid wing sails instead of cloth. They also raise the hulls out of the water on hydrofoils when running at speed. These boats are capable of sailing up to 3 times the wind speed and can hit speeds of over 50 mph.
