Re: AC 34 - What If?

Kiwis must be frustrated, but the rules are far from dumb. Time limits are nothing new and they impact your strategy. You may have to choose between blocking and running for the line before the time expires. The max wind limit is smart on these boats as well. These teams would push themselves to catastrophe without a limit.

That said, has Oracle been penalized yet? I recall twice to NZ. Each boat has had there good and bad races. I hope it goes 8-8 with a final showdown.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
