America's Cup Auckland NZ
« on: January 17, 2021, 09:57:12 am »
If you haven't been watching this your missing some great racing.  75metre mono hulls flying on a single foil doing 4x's wind speed!  Yesterday they were hitting close to 60MPH in 15mph winds, :o  There was a 'Prada World Series before Xmas that was a tune-up, & they have started the round robin elimination series to determine the challenger to the cup holder NZ.  1st rounds ran this past weekend.  The Brits, Italians, & Americans are racing to see who challenges NZ for the cup.  Yesterday the Americans capsized while leading while doing close to 50 MPH.  Next round starts next Friday, live on YouTube 9 to 11PM EST.
