Video: Yacht Charter; Oracle wins America’s Cup Despite Penalty from America’s Cup World Series

September 26, 2013 by NJyachtcharters

Coming in from way behind, Oracle has made sailing history by successfully defending the America’s Cup while under penalty. Oracle Team USA Spithill seen racing here in the America’s Cup World Series in June 2012 in Newport, Rhode Island, was found, during this Newport Series to have added weight to the kingposts of the racing catamaran. Top Management in Oracle denied any knowledge, however 3.5 to 5.5 pounds was believed to have been added by several sailing team members and shore team members to the kingposts. The America’s Cup International Jury penalized Oracle 2 races for the Cup Series, $250,000 and 3 team members were asked to leave. Oracle also forfeited 2 Championships, including the America’s Cup World Series, June 2012, shown filmed by Northrop and Johnson Yacht Charters, Newport.
