Where is that written. If you want to see that watch the Olympics. They use one designs. AC is a different animal.

The sport is also about innovation, design and material advance as well. It sent confined to one dimension. The winning team if I remember defines the type of racers for the following AC. I like they are all different.

I also appreciate the 12 meter boats of old and have sailed on 5 of them. I also appreciate the new technological marvels. They intrigue a different part of me.
