Just my 2 cents....

 

If you think crew work isn't important on these cats, you're an idiot. Sure there aren't spinnaker poles and gnarly sets and what not.... but these boats are TOUGH to sail.

 

Yes, this final wasn't the tactical dual that we love to watch when competing for the World Match Racing Tour Championship... yes it was kinda of a stupid way to award a million dollar prize, but at the end of the day it was pretty badass and fun to watch.

 

When it comes to match racing... I love to watch it be done in symmetrical monohulls, just seems to be way more tactics involved, and crew work on maneuvers becomes even more crucial, which makes for some damn entertaining competition for a sailor watching, I think most of the gen pop just wants to watch people go as fast as they can- similar to F1 and Nascar. 

 

Just some of my thoughts... (shrug)

Canada's Cup has been a joke for a number of years, hope maybe someday we'll be lucky enough to see it return to its former glory- sad we don't see some of the big US clubs on lakes competing more often...

Wow. 

 

The community lost a great one today. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Nedeau family and their close friends.

 

 

 

On another note I expect someone with more first hand knowledge to put together a nice write up, he was a legend in the region.
