I have to admit I kind of gave up with following the America’s Cup because I think it’s losts its “Yachting Spirit”. Some of you will smile but for me it is a real concept. If you log on the official website all you’ll find for the 33 rd is the list of court hearnigs, lawsuits, orders… It is a shame and it is really boring, this should be about sailing, sportmanship, and racing not legal fights. Louis Vuitton even dropped out after 25 years of sponsorship.
Any way at least on good news we will see some multihulls and VPLP has been selected by the Oracle team. Of course I don’t think we will get many information on the design before the launching but any way, I am really happy for them.
