the best race yet

Tonight’s race (west coast) in the Prada Cup between the only two challengers on the water between Ineos and Prada was the best one yet.

The boats were fairly even in speed and the racing was close with a number of lead changes, but I thought Prada made too many mistakes, failing to cover a couple times, and a very slow weather mark rounding. Ineos sailed smart, in phase and just about mistake free. If this is the kind of close racing we can expect through the AC,  this is going to be incredible. – ed.
