Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
The football analogy only applies as I offered it. Only to the mentality of the players. You can't extend the analogy to a point that I didn't make.
You also can't stretch the accusation to say I was suggesting the AC owners/designers completely ignored safety.
My point has and continues to be that they have made these craft more dangerous, while other sports strive to make their next gen equipment less dangerous and more capable at the same time. Following that fact, I do not believe the crews have any choice but to accept that increased danger, even if they or their loved ones would prefer not to.
