The new AC45 are interesting boats with lots of new technologies and can race with more wind than the old monohull cup boats but I am not sure if the boats should not be modified to give them more stability.

The races are beginning to look like a circus. This video is not a collection of all capsizes with AC45, just the ones on the last race in Plymouth:

What do you think?
