"I get that the Americas Cup is trying to advance sailing technology however with the high tech boats they use, is it really true sailing?"

When we were sailing I enjoyed 2 speed winches with ball bearings , instead of bushings.

My 100lb bride enjoyed them too cranking in the big Yankee.

The 20 minute races get to me. Miss the old days when one of them lived a slow death for an hour or two followed by unexpected wind shifts, tacking duels, small mistakes, large mistakes, etc. You know, sailing. Yes, class racing is out there for this type of action but...it's not the America's Cup. Sort of like watching the Triple A National Championship in baseball. Close. no cigar. I'm old. Don't like change.
