Islander Scott Ferguson and his wife, Kim, got up close and personal with the America’s Cup trophy at the BMW Oracle Racing compound right after the win last week in Valencia, Spain. Ferguson was an integral part of the BMW Oracle design team and was leader of the structural and mechanical design of the masts and wing. Last week, Governor Don Carcieri sent a letter to Larry Ellison – who will choose the next site for the race – urging him to consider Newport, which last hosted the race in 1983.
