There’s no doubt that ACC boats will set a blistering pace, but without much of the intrigue and tradition of the America’s Cup it remains to be seen if the event will continue to be considered the pinnacle of yachting
There was a time in the America’s Cup when keels were skirted, boats were outed as “dogs” after their first appearance on the racecourse and skippers called fouls on each other during races. In case you’ve buried your head in a Rosenfeld photography book for the last 10 years, those days are long gone. The America’s Cup will never look like that again.
