That race of 2012 was memorable, as Ben Ainslie was helming the mighty "Eleanor", the re-creation of the legendary 'Westward', the 135ft Herreshoff schooner.

For photographers, the problem w most sailing competitions is that the pictures begin to look the same from race to race – sailboats against a nondescript horizon of blue sky. The AC is different. Its backdrop is San Francisco’s iconic skyline. After day 6 of the finals, when New Zealand led 8-1, it appeared as if the competition was coming to an end and the other 2 Getty photographers were reassigned to other stories.

DOMINIQUE SCHWARTZ: Oh look, I mean it's the old sort of rivalry. Someone said to me, gee I wish we'd had the cup and we'd trade it, we'd trade a Bledisloe Cup for the America's Cup. But yeah, there's always a healthy rivalry but I think in the end they didn't really think of it as an American team. As you say, there really weren't many Americans on board so they think they were just beaten by a syndicate which had more money in the end and probably a faster boat.
