Village people

BMW ORACLE Racing may have finished racing at the Louis Vuitton Trophy, but the event continues with the top four places at stake.

On Saturday, the Synergy team earned a famous win over TeamOrigin to claim third place, with the British entry staking out fourth position on the leaderboard.

On Sunday, Emirates Team New Zealand is scheduled to meet Azzurra in what organisers hope will be a best of three Final to determine the winner. The weather may have other plans, so winning the first race will be critical - it may be the only match they sail.

In the meantime, it's been a busy Saturday at the race village. Photographer Bob Grieser sent in these images from one of his walkabouts in the village.
