Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Odd- it seems that is exactly what it's about. Especially when it references "wide eyed city supervisors being bamboozled by Ellison"

Whose getting everything they want- Larry- the boats, the venue, etc.



Please let me know what the AC is about? Fundraising for SF? Advertising for corporations? Bringing sailing into the mainstream? Providing viewers with wholesome family entertainment?

If any of those were the goals- there's plenty of money tied up in the event to pull of those goals. Those aren't the goals however- from the outset this was suppose to be the most balls out sailing race ever. And boy did they get that in spades.
