Time for Two AC classes? Traditional and Modern class?

Recommended Posts

Is it now time to consider 2 classes in the America's Cup? eg modern class and traditional class?

So much polarization is happening now when discussing the boat type in the AC. One half the traditional monohull, the other, the new fast foiling designs. Could the AC host both trains of competition?

1. Would this help the AC?

2. Can the AC handle both ?

3. Would they both succeed simultaneously?

Lets hear some opinions...

Do they get to win a Cup for each?

 

Fucking stupid idea.

There is a traditional class. Called the J-Class. Lots of rich guys and trophy wives having a whale of a time. They don't need no stinking AC.

IMO... the tradition of the cup ended  with multihulls  or even when the USA sported a multi hull in 1987.

The Cup should go to the J-class (if thats the class decided on) 

Maybe the Modern class could win a drone that hovers or something.
