    Racing delayed

    Cup committee wants to delay races 1 week until Covid level hopefully drops. British agree, but Italians, as challanger of record (COR) want races sailed as scheduled with no spectators.
    Decision today at 10:30pm est

    I know nothing about sail racing, however, when watching, regardless of which way the wind’s blowing, why doesn’t a boat just crank their sail to catch the wind from wherever, crank the rudder to keep going straight for the finish while the other boat tacks and jibes?

    Easiest answer... speed

    Luckily I had set DVR to catch all and the power was on to record at right time. Caught up a few nights back.

    That series was proof of how fortunes come and go quickly. How dominance one week guarantees nothing. The fastest boat early on almost sank, the engineering designs maybe not realized on another.
    That Ferrari of a boat was impressive but time will tell in a few weeks
