The BMW Oracle racing team, winner of the 33rd America's Cup last February, officially wrapped up its America's Cup victory tour this week with a swing along the East Coast.

The team visited with President Barack Obama in the White House. The visit to the White House was just the second for the America's Cup trophy that dates back to 1851.

The next day saw the team in New York City, on the CBS Early Show and ringing the bell to commence the day's trading on the Nasdaq stock exchange.

Finally, the team enjoyed a sun-splashed visit to Newport, R.I., home of the Cup from 1930 to 1983 when it was spirited away by challenger Australia II.
