Don't let it do that! I've been taking people out to watch the Angels for years, staying far away from the spetator fleet (until I got stupid this year!). This year several AC 45's strafed us at about 20 knots (pre-race, while we were outside the "fleet"). What a thrill! With hydro foils and rigs 130 feet tall, the 72's are going to be off the charts! Hope to see ya out there 2013!
