Oracle RC44 San Diego Cup

Following is a selection of images from the recently completed Oracle RC44 San Diego Cup. The RC44 is the brainchild of 4-time America Cup winner Russell Coutts and now attracts some of the world’s leading business minds as their owner/drivers. Its strict one-design racing format, with evenly split eight-man professional and amateur crew, is as level a playing field you’ll find in international racing. With 11 teams representing 9 nations, the five day regatta featured match racing on day one, followed by four consecutive days of intense fleet racing. My most memorable shot was taken from the “9th man” seat aboard Artemis as we were first across the start line. Russia’s Team Katusha, headed by local favorite Paul Cayard, captured the inaugural Oracle RC44 San Diego Cup. The first event organized by SEA San Diego, the regatta was a showcase for “stadium sailing” on San Diego Bay. SEA SD is securing future world-class sailing events in San Diego, including a stop on the AC World Series Tour, as a run up to the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco.
