This is the smile of victory. After many years of intense preparation, Laurent’s team, Oracle Team USA, won in 2013 the famous America’s Cup in San Francisco Bay. No need to come back to what was the closest match in the America’s Cup history, ORACLE TEAM USA wining 8 consecutive races after initially falling behind New Zealand. Laurent has been working for many years now for America’s Cup and Oracle, both in Portugal, Spain and in the USA. I like this picture of Laurent, a cup of champagne in the hand, five minutes after USA 17, the fastest boat in the history of the event, crossed the finish line. Laurent gave a call to the family in Europe, his daughter’s hand trying to say “hey Dad, I am here also to celebrate the victory with you”, and his wife in the background with the american flag she kept with her during all the competition.
