I was lucky enough to catch a little boat racing on Wednesday! The America’s Cup participants are competing in the “World Series”. I’m honestly not interested enough to even Google what this race is really about, but you can find the racing results at Americascup.com. I just like to see all the boats on the bay.

I do know that the series features AC45’s, half-size versions of the boats we’ll see raced next year. There are 11 teams competing – 2 American teams. I can’t believe these boats are only half the size of the real boats because these boats seem pretty big if you ask me. The AC45, named for its length, is 70 feet tall, 22.6 feet wide and weighs 3,086 pounds. It takes five people to race one.

Racing continues today and tomorrow so catch them if you can!
