FT 10 Abacus (USA 8) finishes 2 overall corrected out of 210 boats and first in class. The crew has put together an excellent write up of the entire race here.


And of course thought and prayers go out to the family and friends of the Aegean crew.

So, when one of your (many) designs does particularly well, do you think:

"Those guys were on fire ! What a stand out crew."
or
"Stand BACK ! I could kick Bruce Farr's ass ! America's Cup, here I come..."

both quite reasonable reactions I suppose.
