AC72 capsizes ...

Those AC catamarans are looking more and more like the dodgy option many of us thought they were all along. Eventually, some crew member, falling 72' from stern to bow (and through the rigging) during a pitch-pole is going to get seriously hurt.

Or else, once again, racing will be restricted to ideal conditions. Bring back the monos!
