First off, there isn’t anything American about the America’s Cup. Second: the event has sucked ever since it left Newport, RI and the stewardship of the New York Yacht Club. Three:  the boats suck. Bring back 12-meters. The Cup became a joke the year Dennis Connor decided to defend it in a catamaran. If you want to watch exciting sailing, check this out:

“Alinghi won the America’s Cup to become the first European team to defend sailing’s most prestigious prize.”The Swiss syndicate beat Team New Zealand in a nail-biting seventh race to seal the best-of-nine series 5-2.

“Alinghi finished two seconds ahead of the Kiwis after SUI 100’s sail fell off and left them at a standstill.”
