Boatshed Newport was in the house for the final day of racing at the America's Cup World Series. It was yet again a fantastic day although the winds a bit calmer. The first race featured Oracle Teams USA Spithill and Coutts in a final heat with Coutts the triumphant winner. He claims the title for the most America's Cup victories.

The next race was a fleet performance that was unbelievable to watch. There were near misses and penalty flags all over the channel! Sadly, at the finish line was Team Prada Luna Rossa Piranha who barley edged out Oracle Team USA Coutts, which was heartbreaking to watch. Team Coutts was in command the entire fleet race but lost position at the final mark before the finish.

Overall, a superb experience I can now cross off my bucket list!
