Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

What's the big deal. The Stanley cup as been one by American, Czechs, Russians and oh yes Canadians. The NBA has internationals on every team. MLB , Americans pasttime has South Americans, venezualians, Panamanians, Japanese etc.

Why all the consternation of Aussies or NZ. On Oracle, Team NZ shared info wh the Austrailia,and the Italians.

If you want to watch nationalistic teams watch the Olympics,
If you want to watch nanny safe races watch the Olympics.
If you want to watch everyone with exactly the same boat, watch the Olympics

AC is about cutting edge technology, pushing limits and the limit, corporate sponsorship which crosses nations borders.

It made for ooe exciting series, even though the Nannys on here tried to get it stopped before t started and even though some s vendetta ain't Ellison ads hem route for Oenone from another team and country.

Watch the Olympics for the best sailor. Watch AC for the best sailors and the bet technology has to offer. Cutting edge has its risks.

Oracle was impressive in its learning curve and dptatation. They just kept getting better...NZ CID the kopposite
