They had a full day of "Un-Regatta" racing, which was overseen in part by Russell Coutts, CEO of the America's Cup who joined us on the water to root the kids on. Bryce Tone (USA) came in 1st place with Leo Beyer (Germany) and Aiden Lopes (Bermuda) right behind him. After the race, we were greeted back at the Endeavour base in the Dockyard by Team ORACLE USA engineer, TP, who was able to answer tons of great questions from the young sailors and their families about what it's like to work with the team, boat maintenance and the new generation of America's Cup Sailing.
