I like it more now that the races are on TV. It allows us to see and understand the various strategies and the actions it takes to get the most out of these boats. :deal

One of the Oracle boats tipped over yesterday and before they could right it the tide took it ~4 miles out to sea. :deal

I remember the Kiwi's cheating to try and win it.. but they failed.. still it hasnt been the "same" since the winged keel boats.. but it could be argued that it is better.

I think only fat Dennis believed a plastic boat was "cheating"...

I raced on the trial horse, KZ 5, not a bad old bucket... and no worries about dropping pennies in the bilge like the aluminum sisters.
