As Cup junkies already know, BMW Oracle announced over the weekend that the team would be back in San Diego in late January to continue to work up the big trimaran. That’s a big financial commitment from Ellison, especially since no one seems to really know what’ll happen to Dogzilla if the NY Court of Appeals upholds the lower court’s pro-Alinghi decision sometime over the next three or four months. We did hear from a reliable source inside the team that the crews fell in love with San Diego (who wouldn’t?) and that the next round of trials and tuning would start on the 26th of January. Maybe we’ll finally get that ride we’ve been waiting for… Here’s a parting shot from the team.
