Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Nobody wanted to see Andrew Simpson or any other sailor die.
Hopefully it never happens again.
That said racing is racing and America's Cup has always been a teckno / courtroom sport.
It has never been one design racing.
Traditionalist will disagree but I for one am glad to have a venue that pushes the limit of the sport.
Just like F1 racing safety will follow.
Perhaps the name of my vessel gives it all away.
