Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
I know there is an irreconcilable difference of opinion on this, but I maintain that the crew have little to no actual choice. That discussion with their wives would go like this, hypothetically:
"I was offered a spot on an AC team."
"Isn't that incredibly dangerous and these new boats might really crash into each other and hurt people? I'm worried about the kids."
"Yes, but if I say no, I will never be offered another opportunity like it. I have to say yes, or hurt my career."

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