Red Bull Youth Regatta

During the SF Americas Cup, they staged a weekend regatta with some of the top young sailors from around the planet.  They used the 45' cats that had been part of the World Cup races.  If you remember, the Oracle boats were being inspected for these races and they found some illegal weights in the bows that gave Oracle an edge in the light winds.   This resulted in a 2 race penalty for Oracle during the finals.  Even though they had won 3 races. Oracle was down 8-1 when they made some adjustments to the boat and crew and came back to win it all.  I digress, check out the vid and enjoy these great sailing moments.
