“One of the biggest changes to an America’s Cup campaign since the introduction of the wing has been that instead of having to be ‘switched on’ from dock-out to dock-in as was the case with the old monohulls…you now are on full alert from the moment that wing rolls out the shed in the early morning and until that door rolls back down in the evening with that thing safely tucked inside. I still have vivid memories of the 70m wing of the trimaran trying to take off by itself as we were trying to load it into onto the ship down in San Diego last campaign.” – Shannon Falcone, Team Oracle USA
