"Bertelli, never shy to offer an opinion during a long association with the America's Cup, was a driving force in returning monohulls to the competition after three editions in multihulls."

 

I'd say that rumour is alive and well.

I'm sure it will make a great spectator spectacle having gazillion dollar 75 ft boats capsizing like centreboard dinghies. Bit like nascar crashes. Sure everyone is there to see a race, but crashes are so much more fun to watch...

 

I'm assuming the crew will have adequate safety gear. All you need to worry about is Ben 'crash' Ainslee running over you if you happen to fall over infront of him...

Dont be so negative guys, this is bleeding edge technology, in all respects - hull, foils, electonics, rig and sails. It'll be awesome! And all those things are equally important in the safe operation of a revolutionary vessel.  :thumbup:

Are you talking to KM and Phil, or Bertelli?

A passing comment on a preference is now a negative?

 

As it was OK to voice a preference at breakfast the speed of that change to it being so evil does take 'gone by lunch' to a whole new level.
