The danger and drama surrounding this summer's America's Cup race in San Francisco make this perhaps the most controversial event in the long history of the race. Defending champion Oracle Team USA is taking on challengers in its ultra-fast, aero-dynamically designed, 72-foot catamarans. Oracle owner and billionaire Larry Ellison has spent millions of dollars on the home team's sailing fleet and has united with some unlikely partners to bring the race to the city. Join us to meet the key players in Oracle Team USA and the journalist who has documented their journey as they share their behind-the-scenes insights into how these massive high-tech sailboats work and how the team has prepared to keep the oldest trophy in sports history – even sailing in the rough and unpredictable waters of San Francisco Bay.
