damned if you do, damned if you don’t

With the pretend man in the sky clearly not smiling down on the America’s Cup, today’s first race today was abandoned as the limit was exceeded. Not the wind limit, the time limit!! You would swear we are making this shit up (and no doubt the angriest of our detractors will somehow accuse us of exactly that), but we kid you not: For some bizarre and seemingly irrational reason, there is a 40 minute time limit on these races, effectively meaning that the course cannot be sailed in less than 10 knots of wind, which is about what they had today.

And the real bitch to all of this is that the race was called with ETNZ having what looked to be about a 1000 meter lead in a race that they took control of, and flat out-sailed Oracle to what should have been the final and clinching win for the ETNZ AC victory.

But no such luck to our Kiwi friends, courtesy of the geniuses who made up this ridiculous time limit rule. What’s next for today? That’s why we watch…

Title inspiration thanks to Bart Simpson.
