Images from San Diego: You gotta love a Beamer!

I always like "Beamers"..This adds new meaning to the term. BMW Oracle Racing took their America's Cup Challenger, BOR90 out for her first sail after around five weeks of modifications were undertaken in the builder's shed in San Diego.

The major changes which are confirmed in these photos include a new mast (with a hard wing believed to be on its way); the centreboard has been removed, as has the main rudder; an engine has been fitted to provide power for the hydraulic systems which now power the winches instead of an eight strong grinding team."
