Still having trouble getting excited about the America’s Cup? If so, may we inquire as to what the hell is wrong with you?
Just two boats are in the water, and already we’re pretty psyched. Leave out all the politics, all the media crap, and all the San Francisco BS and what’s left? Some bad-ass boats. Here’s OTUSA’s first decent sail aboard 17 with some explanations from the team on how they got back on the water before their new daggerboard was ready. If all you want to see is foiling, fast forward to 3:28, and don’t forget to learn more and chat about it in the mammoth Oracle 72 thread.
Racing in the first AC World Series event of the new season starts Wednesday, but there won’t be video until Thursday, and we’ll have it up right here on SA for the clicking-averse. Hopefully former IndyCar announcer Todd Harris will somehow wave a magic wand and turn Gary Jobson into someone coherent and interesting!
