Can there be any real doubt who you would choose as your skipper in the LVC Finals starting today? Deano hardly ever puts a wheel wrong and their mastery over Luna Rossa last go around was, well, masterful. Sure, the Guidos put it to Artemis – and looked pretty good in the process – but it was a very damaged Artemis team in almost every way, sailing what can only be called a dog of a cat.
So some intrigue abounds, however, and for the sake of the Cup, let’s hope it starts to materialize today. And sorry YouTubers, or anyone who - god forbid – would want to actually watch it live, it is “tape-delayed” on NBC Sports today at 3 pm, West Coast, bitches!
