"Getting ready to race: America’s Cup boat revealed in Bermuda" (featuring The Oracle Team USA)
"The Oracle Team USA which successfully won the America’s Cup in 2013 wants to stay winners in the 2017 race in Bermuda. In order to do so it went into a two year partnership with the plane maker Airbus to build a newly designed boat that will more than ever « fly on water. »"
