Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(August 4-8, 2008) With the threat of multihull racing in the next America’s Cup, and the bitter litigation between cup defender Alinghi and the BMW Oracle Racing Team, much had been made of the two teams meeting at the iShares Cup Extreme 40 catamaran event at Skandia Cowes Week in Cowes, UK on August 2-4, 2008. Challenging conditions of brisk winds and confused sea played havoc on the fleet, with three of the 11 entrants failing to finish the series. Alinghi was only one of two teams to complete all of the 16 races, making skipper Ed Baird's group a worthy winner of the event.
