Re: AC 34 - What If?
I think it has been established the US doesn't fund sailing so for most US citizens anything gotten out of it is a bonus since they do not have anything invested. The 'billions invested' is a bit of an over reach.
You've taken the comment a bit too literally. Ellison drew up a format that cost so much that all but a few couldn't even pay for the boat. All they got for that incredible increase in cost is a faster boat. The rest of the race is the same stuff.
