America’s Cup Ciao Bella

I recently had the chance to go aboard one of the Course Security boats during a time trial for Luna Rossa, one of the massive AC72 sailboats that fly across the water. Small but formidable, we were tasked to marshal the area just north of the finish line and in front of the America’s Cup Pavilion. As other boats attempted to enter the race course perimeter, we would rush full speed to intercept the aggressor and direct them back on course. This task ensured the safety of both the civillian vessel and the multi million dollar sailboats flying across the Bay at speeds upward of 40 mph. And in between intercepts I got to take some photos of a beautiful boat! Ciao Bella!!!
