Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

was an interesting description of a novice to these types of boats ( although an experieinced sailor) in one of the recent rags. Apparently helming these craft is totally different and not all all like the "seat of your pants" viiseral affair we all do intutively. Just like the autopilot may stear the boat faster than a human helmsman not unlikely a computer getting input from all components may be faster and safer on these as well.Run fast you're more likely to trip- on land and sea. Be a kick to do it though.
