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."
It seems you don't know top sail racers. If the place was offered to any, they would be jumping with joy all over the house
