“what a shame!”

Update: When Ken Read yelled “What a shame” as race number two today was abandoned almost exactly as the start gun was fired, he was more accurate than he knows (or actually we think he does know, but positioned squarely in the middle of the Status Quo, is unable to fully articulate what he really thinks. To his credit however, he surely says more than any of the other dummies).

As if the AC was attempting to fulfill our criticisms, they could not have made a worse call if they tried. Jfc, is this “the greatest sailboat race in the world” or a fucking bad mitten match? Get on with it, let these two more than capable teams go at it and stop being such hand-wringing pussies. We are so goddamn tired of hearing about “safety”. Safety, safety, safety. Because one inept team (Artemiss) failed, does that mean everyone must pay the price? It isn’t blowing 35, it’s blowing 22!!!

Regardless, racing has been terminated for the day, and in essence, so has this series…

ETNZ gave Oracle a beating in every phase of the first race of the day today, going up 8-1 and leaving Oracle with two chances to salvage the day: A win in race 2 (unlikely), or the “wind limit” being exceeded.  Early Vegas odds favor the latter 10-1 over the former….
