America’s Cup Red Bull Youth Finals

There is a regatta of youth teams competing at the America’s Cup. (See that link for today’s news story.) They are mostly sponsored by the teams and companies involved in the main event.

They are racing the old boats from 4 years ago, the AC45. And it looks like they aren’t foiling the boats. But I’m not sure if that is in the rules, or just a judgement call on the part of the skippers.

The video is interesting because is shows the pandemonium that usually characterizes regatta racing. (As opposed to match racing between two boats.)

The main event resumes tomorrow.
