Super Sunday

Though I didn't go down into San Francisco for the final day of racing for the America's Cup World Series, the television coverage was terrific! I even got my non-sailing best friend from University watching! Thank you NBC! For those not in the U.S. You can always catch live coverage streaming on the America's Cup Website. There is an America's Cup You Tube Channel too.  One advantage of the television coverage....saw 6th man U.S. Olympic Medalist Michael Johnson jumping off of the Oracle boat. The final match race between the two Oracle boats was brilliant! I loved the second fleet race. Congratulations Chris Draper and the Luna Rossa Piranha crew on the win. Way to make the finish heart stopping with that near capsize and brilliant save!

So far, there are two facebook pages I have found really helpful in keeping up with all the competition and do a great job posting pictures and videos. 

There are a ton of Twitters' out there too for those who want instantaneous information

The picture below was taken by Jon Nash, the videographer/photographer for J.P. Morgan BAR. I love it because it isn't often you get to see the Union Jack with the Golden Gate Bridge!

Well that's it for Super Sunday! Stay tuned for my own escapades in getting back on the water!

Thanks for visiting!
