The answer to today's Geo Quiz is Valencia, Spain. Valencia is preparing to host the next America's Cup sailing competition in February. The US will be represented by the BMW-Oracle team. We hear from 3 team members who describe their radically designed race boat.
MARCO WERMAN: We're looking for a Spanish port city in today's Geo Quiz. This city is preparing to host the next America's Cup sailing competition in February. There's been some doubt about the venue for this major international sailing event, but baring a last minute appeal, the race will be staged in Spanish waters. The likely host city has been the venue before, this time the US team is going for America's Cup glory with a radically redesigned yacht.
MALE: And it's a very high performance. Very light and very stiff. Very strong but doesn't take shock fill or knock fill or abuse at all. And so it's out on the limit of engineering knowledge as we know it.
WERMAN: More about the new yacht in a few minutes when we tell you the name of the likely host city for the next America's Cup.
