When you open up the design rules of an ultra-competitive competition like the America’s Cup you’re bound to get some crazy submissions like the BOR 90. The BOR 90 (which stands for BMW Oracle Racing) is a winged sailboat.
This wing is gigantic people. It is made of carbon fiber and Kevlar and is 190 feet tall. The sail on the B0R 90 is motorized so you start to wonder if this is actually real sailing at all. Anyway, the BOR 90 will be ready to go for the 2010 America’s Cup. The rules changed for everyone, so who knows what the BOR 90 will be up against.
