    Oracle Racing has posted an update on how repairs are going for the, apparently, destroyed USA 17. Surprising that the capsize of the AC73 was so devastating as we regularly saw the AC45's go over and be back racing the next day. It presents an added element to the upcoming Louis Vuitton Challenger series and the America's Cup in that crews will have to be more conservative knowing that errors common in the AC45 racing will be mean the end of a team's challenge in the AC72.

    Some sequence shots of USA17 being rebuilt.
