I seriously doubt it...

Well, I do know. Watching 12-meters was like watching grass grow. I would be happy to watch it in any high-performance boat--mono or multi--but it better be planing, foiling, flying a hull, or SOMETHING. Otherwise, I might as well just watch good club racing, which by the way is dull as dirt if you're not on board.
