Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

I don't disagree with all these activities originally taking on risk. But whether it is flight, space missions or formula one racing, the next evolution of the activity was safer than the last.

This specifically not the case with AC racing at the moment. They amp'd up to cats, then to 45s, then to 72s. All the while, they were getting more and more dangerous, with more accidents and injuries.

That's my point.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
