Congratulations BMW Oracle

They may not technically be foilers, but they do have foils and if being a foiler was judged on all round awesomeness BMW Oracle and Alinghi would be right in there!

Having booked flights to Valencia to see the America's Cup for Adam's Christmas present we headed over in time for the pre-match build up. With the first race being postponed due to light winds my annual leave ran out before we saw any actual racing. Despite this getting to see these amazing racing machines up close was a fantastic experience.

One for the family album. Posing with a picture of Uncle Alan. OK, so he is a slightly more distant relative than uncle, but the cup has been in the family none the less.

British Cultural Representative, Tom Whicher, doing his bit to keep up the morale of the traveling Mothies whilst managing to get mention on the official cup home page. Tom, we salute you.
