Re: Oracle Team USA forfeits both ACWS season titles

I don't know a thing about these races so I don't understand why some of these rules are in place.

If everyone had to keep their boat under a certain length and width, why not let them do whatever they want as long as it isn't powered by anything but the wind ? Why does anyone care what weights they have, where they are located, or anything else, why not let them do whatever they want ?

If it's about sailing ability, then like "stock cars" you'd have to sail the exact same boats. If it isn't about sailing ability but is about the boat, then let them sail whatever they can put together, and sail in whatever conditions you get on sailing day.

Like I said, I don't know much about it, so maybe I just don't "get it"
