Re: America's Cup opening races

Yesterdays races were cancelled due to the wind direction being 20-30 degrees off the preferred direction rather than windspeed being too high. When I sail the wind is often coming from a less than ideal direction but I go anyway. Seems to me this is supposed to be a test of sailing ability and to me that means dealing with less than ideal conditions. I am not a racer so can someone please explain the logic of this to me. Would it have made it impossible to complete a race within the allotted 40 minutes?
