The first time my folks saw a sailboat race they were out on my beach cat
"What are all those boats doing over there, sailing slow and close together?"
"Oh, it's like a whispering contest, right?"
Just funning ya guys. We love sailing up to monohulls, looking at the pretty boat, and moving on.
I don't see what's wrong with rich folk wasting their money trying to build fast round-the-buoy racers. It's not as though we don't waste what we have on sailing. I get a kick out of both the spectacle and the litigation.
