Nah... It is more of a smackdown of Jboats in general... save any of them that end in a 5 or is called a J90, they are remarkably dull boats. The racing is tight and is usually fun, but watching them is worse than watching paint dry. At least you'd have the contact buzz of paint fumes to make that prospect more interesting. And yes... I have sailed JBoats... more than nearly anything else, so I do have a few cents of cred to spend here. Not much granted.
Now a Snapper/Espo showdown in Melges 32s, Mumm 30s or anything with some serious speed potential...
Also... in case anyone is really curious... both Snap and Espo would do extraorindarily well with the boats I mentioned above. It just strikes me that if we are gonna hold this world class drinking contest, we should probably bust out the good stuff.
Trying to lighten up this thread folks. This is just sailboat racing (aka the least popular sport in th US).
