Welcome to Yeah Bloody Nice!
Sailing fails and funnies mixed with some awesome sailing videos and Sailing News - Go Hard, or Go Home - Yeah Bloody Nice.
Nice to see some of the guys in the background finally getting some exposure. Great video here showing what Ron Esparza does for Oracle Team USA, he is the crane driver that gets to play with the wing
The first part of the video is footage of the boat flying around the bay in San Fran, looking really good
Today Emirates Team New Zealand took its AC72 out sailing on San Francisco Bay for the very first time.
It was to be a light shake down but all systems were go and so was the AC72 foiling around the bay.
Get used to the sight, it will be a frequent one over the coming months.
During the AC World Series event in Naples, all America’s Cup teams were not allowed to sail the AC72’s. So Artemis Racing used this time as a chance to modify the boat.
Mark Carpenter, head of platform maintenance, explains the mods and how the shore crew tackle the work set out for them.
The first footage of the new Oracle Team USA AC72 out on the water. Is this going to be the winning America’s Cup boat?
I have a feeling it is going to be, but this looks like a beast! Roll on the start of the America’s Cup
Awful music on this…..
ORACLE Team USA launch boat two – USA17, with a fair amount of fan-fair as well.

Another interview with Artemis Racing here, this time with both Helmsmen – The every cool as **** Loick Peyron and almost as cool Nathan Outteridge, as they talk to AC’s Uncut Genny Tulloch about recent modifications and foiling.
My question is, will the new boat be airborne when they launch it?
The ever charming Loïck Peyron talks about how these recent modifications have improved Boat 1.
After going through some modifications, the AC72 has been back out on the Bay training for this upcoming summer.
They have been making some major modifications to the wing, which Peyron says they are now getting the maximum power out of it!
Jimmy Spithill on Oracle Team USA AC72 modifications with AC UNCUT’s Genny Tulloch, its been six months since they flipped USA17 (version1).
James talks the psychological benefit of going through the capsize, and how he believes Oracle Team USA is stronger than ever because of it.
Video from last day of training for Emirates Team New Zealand in Aukland on the AC72, before they pack it into containers and head for San Francisco.
Business Time for the Americas Cup
Emirates Team New Zealand has completed its last days sailing on the AC72 in Auckland.
It’s time to pack the containers, wrap the boats and put them on a ship to San Francisco.
After one of the best days sailing in the past couple of weeks, everyone is ready to get up to San Francisco and change focus to the business end of this America’s Cup campaign.

After a dramatic few days for Emirates Team New Zealand, they have now got the AC72 wing sail back on track as it’s hoisted again.
Interesting to hear Dalts say they only have about 10 more lifts to go!!
