I hope so We will see if its going to be like that...or a flop. Anyway it is risky for any investor (sponsor). It is betting on the unknown instead of investing in a warranted success.

Paulo,

I hope so too--I hope it is a rousing success for the sport in general, and for sailboat racing in the US as well!

Re: 2013 America's Cup

For the goofball naysayers who claimed NOTHING would come out of the AC34 technology for the broader sailing market. You were obviously wrong:


And how about them hands?

Re: 2013 America's Cup

Can't say I really know what has come of it. The wing has been around a long time now. No way I would want one, even for coastal cruising, unless there is a way to douse it that I'm not aware of.

Still, its sort of carnaval-like interesting to see it on a cruiser.

Re: 2013 America's Cup

Nothing new about wing sails:

A French Trimaran Has Inflatable Sails - NYTimes.com

but certainly the AC coupe has bring it to the world's attention.

I don't know well the technology but there are ways to reef it. Beneteau are not the only ones making experiences with it. The research is huge:

There was, back in the 1980s, the solid-wing 18 Square Meter catamaran "Wild Turkey". C-class cats have had solid wings for quite some time
