Elite Performance and the Greatest Comeback in Sailing History

America's Cup Victory

Going from “What?” to “Wow!” last week, Oracle Team USA won the America’s Cup in a comeback that was arguably the greatest in sailing history. Pacific Union salutes Oracle for its embodiment of the principles of elite performance and congratulates all the teams — including our partner, Artemis Racing — for the extraordinary efforts they put forth on San Francisco Bay this summer.

We at Pacific Union were thrilled to watch the Oracle crew complete an unbelievable eight-race sweep to claim the America’s Cup title yesterday.

The drama had been building all week as Oracle slowly but steadily closed what seemed to be an insurmountable gap in the regatta. As they built steam, so did the viewing public. What was originally deemed a “yawn” event by many observers turned into an absolute nail-biter of a competition as Team Oracle rallied to erase – then overcome – a seven-point deficit.

Many onlookers (us included!) suspended work to watch the races in person, stream them on their computers, or even just frantically reload their Twitter feeds as the final seconds counted down. America’s Cup fever seized not just San Francisco but the viewing public, and culminated in yesterday’s incredible result. As one fan put it, “If it was scripted this way in a movie we would never have believed it!”
