over and out

Enfant Terrible won the Farr 40 Worlds in Newport last week, but no one seems to have told the Class that no one cares about them anymore. Apparently some of the protest/rules/measurement shit that went down at the NYYC-based regatta makes the AC45 rules wars look tame.  And we’re sure no one told Rolex that their ‘product’ has become  stale; they’re still throwing hundreds of thousands of dollars a year into a dated, obsolete boat with no exposure, no visibility, and no future beyond club racing and a single 8-15 boat Worlds once a year.

There’s nothing wrong with that, but it sure would be nice to see one of the sport’s major sponsors spending all that money to accomplish something positive, rather than using it to prop up something that should have been left to its own devices years ago.   We’ll have more on both these subjects soon, but in the meantime, keep your eye on boat at the top right of your screen and enjoy one of sailing’s top stars (and the winning tactician from Worlds) falling right off the back of the boat. Thanks to Zerogradinord for the tip.
