nice to see ya
Anyone that was even 1/2 watching the ACWS in Newport was sure to see New Zealand’s Team Emirates capsize. (even if you’re not into sailing or didn’t know what was going on it was all over the local news and on the front page of every local daily). The consequences of which were New Zealand’s ultimate elimination in the match racing series.
As if capsizing in an 11 knot breeze might not be embarrassment enough, with plenty of room and better wind on other parts of the course, Team Oracle’s Russell Coutts does a drive-by (there was actually plenty of room between Oracle and Emirates……. 8 feet is plenty of room right?) to do a little rubber necking and while doing so, as you can see in the last image, let’s a grin fly making sure to be noticed by his fellow countrymen on the ill-fated Team Emirates. A little salt in the wound….. – Mike Egan.
