AC45 skipper-turned-AC commentator Mitch Booth was sadly replaced on the microphone before the San Francisco ACWS, but as shown by this photo, the multihull legend has perhaps made some better career choices lately!  From Mitch:

Last week’s Rolex Middle Sea Race was a light, slow regatta with little excitement.  However, upon our return to our marina at the lovely Excelsior Hotel Malta, we noticed something interesting:  A Russian beauty contest!  The crew of Kuka Lightwere already happy to be one of the first teams to finish, and happier to provide Kuka to the girls for some happy snappies in the sun before they returned to their fast-approaching Russian Winter. Check out the Kuka Light build gallery for more snaps. -MB
