The America's Cup is the pinnacle of Match Racing, folks. Meaning that if there's any sense in the world, it'll be in Monohulls, or the most agile multis never invented.
In the last AC, we had the winner parked up in irons for a couple of minutes after the start gun. Still won the race because it was so much faster. But OMFG - it was soooo exciting because that boat was so fast. ...snooze... And so far in this LVC, we've had boats bumping - boats bumping, with the rudder on full lock to avoid contact. When last did that happen in the AC?
I'd say the odds of us seeing a tacking or gybing duel this AC are as small as the odds are great that every match series will be a whitewash. If I were going to get skunked i guess it would be a bit more exiting if it were in a 40 kt sailboat that might kill me... Not sure how much that would do for an intriguing contest, though.
