Ok, we’ve been pretty silent in our postings because the sailing scene around here has been anything but quiet. I don’t even know where to start in talking about the America’s Cup. I will be the first to admit that I had my reservations about the whole thing going into it, not the least of which were that the boats were too bleeding edge and the teams too few.
But in the end, it proved to be one of the best and most dramatic sailing events, ever. Man, what a great show. The boats were simply staggering to watch. The drama of how the event unfolded couldn’t have been written any better.
And here we go, OTUSA heading for the barn with the fleet in pursuit….
And just for grins, here’s the replica of the America, the boat that started it all and loaned it’s name to the the trophy….
Congrats to OTUSA. And thank you to ETNZ. And here’s to hoping the next round will be in SF again, and will be as much fun as this one!
