Blast from the past

Before he was an Olympic Gold Medallist, Bode Miller (USA) sailed with the BMW ORACLE Racing team as 18th man during the 32nd America's Cup.

The image above is from Louis Vuitton Act 12, in 2006.

With Bode contributing to a medal haul that allowed the United States to lead the total medal standing at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and Larry Ellison and team bringing the America's Cup back to the US, February was a great month for American sport.

At the time of his sail with us in 2006, Bode remarked how much he loved the sensation of speed on board. I imagine he'd be pretty impressed on the trimaran... Hopefully we'll have a chance to get him out on it in the US at some point...
