No, not that World Series – baseball is just finishing up the first round of the playoffs. But last weekend in San Francisco, sailing teams and fans gathered for the America’s Cup World Series regatta, featuring the America’s Cup teams racing 42-foot catamarans.

In this World Series, Oracle Team USA 4, skippered by Jimmy Spithill, came from dead last at the first mark to win the final race and the Series on Sunday. Beat that, MLB!

Newport Beach Indy photographer Jim Collins was among the locals who made the trip north to watch the action, and he filed this photo report.
