Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

With all the chase boats around on a near shore confined course, I don't think the AC had any significant risk of death at all, until the wing hit the scene. Then, rather than engineer the safest way to use it, they amp it up to 72 feet. Woohoooo. Wait, what happened?

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