Paige Brooks waxes poetic…
I remember the first time I saw the 45s out and wow. But the 72? My god that boat is big. It has a true wow affect. You know I always get sorta high when i see the AC boats, but when the 17 came into the ‘stadium’ today, I felt like everyone was watching. She dwarfed the 45s. At one point there were 7 chase boats behind her.
There’s no way you can miss it. It’s big, looming, and looked like a reined in racehorse. I could see the platform flex from a few miles away as he sped her up and slowed her down again. I cannot wait to see the boat in big breeze. It was hot and light today. And she still flew. I just keep saying Wow.
This isn’t about being a fan or not a fan of the AC, but about big cat boat spectacular technology. This thing is just incredible. Truly. Photo Guilain Grenier/Oracle Team USA.
