Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Exactly, the risk with the smaller boats was already known. I would love to hear whether they really thought a larger, faster version would be less risky. Seems to defy logic, but I'm open to hearing that they thought it would, even if they are being proved wrong. I would feel better about that.

As it stands, it seems Ellison was just upping the ante.

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