Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed
These boats are awesome. It's a real tragedy that someone drowned but they are all big boys and know what the risks are.
This is essentially a new sport with little comparison to the old 12 meters which were mostly IN the water. These guys are connected mostly to the sky with just enough graphite in the water to call it "boating."
