Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Although a TRC metric would be useful believe it would be some time before a meaningful ( low estimate of the error) number could be generated due to the low N. Also believe next subsequent race will involve boats that will contain major technologic advance. Therefore any number generated would not apply to the boats currently racing. However, very interested in the concept of the race being a totally human endeavor with no genset or powered aids. Believe this would limit speeds and increase safety and is a very intelligent idea. Also, restoring more humanity into the equation would enhance the race.
