Like everyone else in the entire world, we’re amazed at just how pathetic the Louis Vuitton Cup ‘racing’ has been.  And with Ainslie’s rudder snapping clean off in Defender trials, the home team is no better than the visitors.  Listen above to hear Mr. Clean sum it up well, as recorded live this morning with D’arcy Waldegrave on Radio Sports NZ.

Meanwhile, remember we told you Oracle was threatening to protest Luna Rossa and ETNZ for ‘trespass’?  As much as it sounds like it, we weren’t joking.

As a final sum-up for the ‘summer of racing’ thus far, here’s a good look at the what, the why, and the how of the AC72 debacle including an interview with a rapidly aging Russell Coutts, from our friends at the good ship Outside Mag.  Thanks to Kahlessa for the find, and don’t forget to spend a few hours with the America’s Cup Anarchy forums if you’re looking for the best Cup discussion on the web.
