Re: America's Cup opening races
Unless they pull out some sort of miracle to cure their overwhelming inferiority sailing upwind, Oracle doesn't stand a chance. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if this is over Sunday.
The miracle is out there and winning races.
Where did they get that extra up-wind speed from? Some legs of the last race they were doing 34 knots upwind, fully foiling.
And now we're down to real match racing.
It's not over til it's over,
