There is also the possibility that team managers actually want to do the right thing for the sailors, despite those baying here for gladiatorial combat.
Right. I was at Cowes in 2005 when it was blowing 43 kts on Thursday, and 6 boats frigging sunk. Don't talk to me about gladiatorial combat. Wanker.
