the oracle of oracle

ACRM and the AC72 Class continue to show their…umm…versatility; they add ‘any other wind than Westerly’ to ‘anything over 20 knots’ and ‘anything under 8 knots’ to the list of conditions they apparently cannot handle. It’s not the boats; unlike Artemis, they are built for racing, and the fact that they aren’t is a sad, sick joke.  Is the racing incredible when it does happen?  Absolutely, as we prayed for and hoped on the front page , and we have been riveted to our screens when Whitey lets us watch.  And clearly sailors adore it.

But the general public, the mainstream press, and a blood-smelling SF press mostly think it’s a sick joke to see the boats clearly flying around but hear that they’re not allowed to race.  ’Bringing Disrepute to the Cup’, we might have a couple of new suggestions.

As for Larry’s pact with whomever controls the weather above San Francisco, another take on it above comes from Beau and Randy at Bangin’ The Corners.  For those tired of watching abandonments and postponements out West, check out the live-streamed Little America’s Cup, starting tomorrow at 1100 GMT, or the live-streamed Melges 32 Worlds starting around the same time.
