America's Cup rudder set to appear at Annapolis sail show

A rudder from Oracle Team USA’s AC72 racing catamarans will make an appearance in Annapolis at Mack Boring and Parts Co.’s Yanmar booth during the U.S. Sailboat Show, which starts Thursday and runs through Sunday.

The 12-foot-high carbon fiber rudder was transported from San Francisco following the Oracle team's come-from-behind win in the 34th America's Cup.
