“Nathan Outteridge, the helmsman for Artemis Racing, Mr. Simpson’s team, said in an interview last week he believed it was “pretty likely” that a boat would capsize or crash during the competition, given the bay’s harsh sailing conditions and a new design of the boats in this year’s race that made them faster but less stable.”
If so, why is he even on the boat....
Every man for himself.
this has turned into more about radial boat design than sailing skill though a lot of skill is involved. like so many things today it has devolved from the original good intent.
