The American boat does look remarkably stable in flight.

As much as I prefer the idea of a yacht race in the old sense - these machines are nothing short of amazing. I'd be interested to know how much automisation is involved.

looking at the webcam pics - the boat was launched and rigged before dawn this morning (may have happenned last night?)

 

Left the dock before 0950hrs.

 

So looks like they're going sailing - finally!
