As some of you may know BWM/Oracle has been building a 90' x 90' trimaran sailboat for the Americas Cup. They just released this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8WoFksO9tI&feature=player_embedded
which actually says a lot about technology, teamwork, and innovation, all of which runs into FIRST.

Just as an editorial comment (sorry to be a buzz kill.)
They got into this race by using the courts and lawyers and totally ruining the Americas Cup. Their actions are about as far away from GP as possible.

I know, I have been watching it all unfold in detail, and I was getting really tired of the bickering and legal crap (we do our fair share of bickering over the rules here too...), but you have to admit, that thing is an engineering marvel, and it did take a lot of GP to get the thing built. That is a lot of different teams working together. And all of the work on it was done in the united states. I can't wait to see what these monsters are going to do when they really start pushing then in the race.
