Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Not sure what model you are looking at but those of us who race on the Bay know that the City side is where you go for wind relief. The shear line runs from Blackaller to Alcatraz and on to just outside Blossom Rock. If you think it’s windy by the City, you ought to try a mark rounding at Harding Rock on the same day!
