VALENCIA, Spain — Larry Ellison's space-age trimaran BMW Oracle has won back the America's Cup for the United States by speeding across the Mediterranean to rout two-time defending champion Alinghi of Switzerland for a two-race sweep.

The 65-year-old software tycoon was onboard his incredibly fast craft Sunday.

Alinghi raised a red protest flag on its giant catamaran late on the first leg of the triangle course, but then dropped it after the race.

Ellison's victory over rival billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli sends the oldest trophy in international sports to San Francisco's Golden Gate Yacht Club.
