Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
Seems to me, LATITUDE 38 strikes the right note, here (bolded portion mine):
"As exciting as AC72s are to watch, in light of Simpson's death we, too, have to wonder if research and development of this new class of boats isn't still too much in the experimental phase to be ready for competition before a world-wide audience just 51 days from now."
As I said before...this is exactly the problem...too much, too big, too soon. But I sure hope they don't abandon the cats or the format. They're on to something truly great.
(PS - I'm
the bathtub sailor around here and don't you forget it!)
