Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Julie, how strange. You just can't believe these rumours. Why, I heard one directly from an Oracle crew that they were told if they couldn't do any better after the fifth loss, that two of them would be pulled at random and replaced with two from Aquarius! And you can, that changed their entire demeanor.

Of course that's all probably a scurrilous lie, but you'll notice the AC boats were built with no autopilot, no water tanks, and no spinnaker, to ensure they didn't have those kind of problems?
