Oracle News of the Week

Last Sunday (30th June), saw the opening of the new series of Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson racing the fastest car in the world (a hire car!) against James May who was onboard with Sir Ben Ainslie on an Oracle Racing AC72.  Read more about it here and watch it on the iplayer.


Few components of the AC72 class are getting as much attention as rudder wings, the large lifting foils attached to the bottom of the catamaran’s steering rudders. Tom Slingsby walks through the basics, and explains a bit about how ORACLE TEAM USA has been using them in their continued development leading up to the America’s Cup defense in September.
