In any event the AC has never been a 'pure one-design' situation by the normal definition..
Yes ok, but the phsycological part is for me a fair part about being "the best crew"

But I agree it was never a pure one design event, but it pushed some interesting innovation, maybe it still does. I am just not being thrilled by the whole "crazy-cat" thing these days.
