Bound for SFO

A few bleary eyed passengers at 0600 this morning in VLC - for some, it was due to one final night of celebrations. For others, like Alex Mato, our tour leader, it was due to finishing some last logistics details until the early hours.

Grant 'Guthrie' Davidson, escorted the America's Cup trophy to the airport and we soon realised a new crew position would be necessary - Cup caddy - and Matty Mason took up the role.

Now we're in Frankfurt, on board, waiting for 'wheels up'. The Cup is in its first class seat and we're San Francisco bound.
