ACRM and the teams have millions of dollars worth of media equipment. Ironic, then, that the best sailing video – by far- of ETNZ and Oracle’s AC72s comes not from Hamish Hooper or Amory Ross or IMG media or Sunset + Vine…
Nope, it comes from Anarchist “JNavas”, who’s been shooting his ass off in San Francisco for the past few weeks. And yesterday, he caught the ‘holy grail’ of the current Cup news cycle at around 16:45 – the first actual evidence of something we reported two months ago: New Zealand completing a gybe without the hulls touching the water. He also got some great comparison vid of Oracle’s Cup boat, and anyone with the imagination to see these things doing what they do in th emidst of the September fury on the Bay – our hearts quicken. You can check out JNavas’ entire SF practice playlist here, and talk about the flying gybes here.
Title shout goes to one of the best – and cheesiest – movies of all time. There can be only one!
