Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

It’s been a lot of fun watching the 72s practice on the Bay. Their closure speeds on you are incredible. We had one close approach on us at about fifty feet (we were on starboard). The level of seamanship is amazing. We haven’t looked closely at the AC race schedule yet so we haven’t committed to any specific dates yet but are looking forward to the actual races. (Watching the 45’s race was a hoot and a half!)
