Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
It will be a drag like in Valencia with the boats on the water for hours, with people waiting endlessly for the beginning of a race that after all will not take place. It is bad for the public, for the sport and incredibly bad for TV coverage.
Very bad for business and in the end for sailing.
Yeah except this could go on for months just to get the LV cup races done. I don't think the people proposing the wind be lower than 20kts understand that it's rare for it to be sub-20 kts during the summer months. When the 45's raced in October here it was 18-20, and that's at the tail end of the summer wind here.
