Buff Staysails TV-show

The AC circus is moving faster than any other sailing event I've ever heard of. Some people like it; Some people don't. In the latter category we find Vincenzo. Me, I still dunno what to think.
The new Sailrocket? E.T.'s dad? No, it's the AC45...
The editors at Scuttlebutt aren't quite sure what to think either. In a post called "Just what America's Cup needs", they talk about sugar over substance. I think "All candy diet" would have been a better title, but nevermind. While we're all hoping for the better, another blogger takes us to a sneak preview of the upcoming AC circus in a post called "Buff Staysail's ACWS TV show". It's soooo funny.

Oh, and if you look up the Sailrocket and start thinking: Yeah, life begins at 40 knots, then think again. It could be that life starts in a foiling monohull at 30 knots.

  1. Thanks for the link - and the "all candy diet" is a very good way of summing up the new AC!

    Alas must confess I have a bit of a sweet tooth, but there is only so much you can take in one go.

  2. YVW! I had such a laugh "watching" the TV-show. Too much sugar make my head spin, and ultimately it makes me hungry for real food. Let's see what they serve next in Larry Land.
