AC BreakingBeing There

While the Botins and JuanKers of the world are busy making digital finger paintings and programming simulators, Butch Dalrymple-Smith has already taken the America’s Cup 75 ‘jesus lizard’ by the horns with this frankenfoiler prototype.  You want Code Zero?  How about this bowsprit?
Plenty of discussion of both the new AC format and boat over in AC Anarchy, and while we may be fans of the new foiler, everyone sure isn’t. Longtime SA’er and sportboat racer ‘richiec’ summed up the naysayers’ comments quite succinctly:
“I thought the cats were fucking stupid. This is even more ridiculous. Can’t you just sail yachts, for fucksakes? I supported ETNZ for the last 10 years, all in the hope the Cup would come back to the southern hemisphere – and now we are faced with some mongrel/hybrid/vapourware video game shitter. 
“Sail BOATS, you fucktards!”
