When did they start using multi-hulls? I guess it's no longer a boaters race, but an engineering race now.

I wish the America's Cup races would return to using "real" sailboats.

A real boat for the cup is a J boat.

I want to be the crew guy that stands on the spreader to help the jib over , and watch the race the rest of the time.
