First off: Congrats to Heartbreaker.

Clean & Mer, all the videos from this series have been great. If you have any Video from the last race I'm sure there are plenty of people who want to see it.

Also, I'm would still love to hear a detailed report on the last race. Just from the deltas at the mark roundings it sounds like it was anybody's race. Would like to know what happened out there. I don't know about everyone else, but SA wasn't available for about an hour (from 2:20 to about 3:15).

Overall, this coverage has been the best so far. The (almost) realtime video, IonEarth Tracking and the on the water coverage and pics. Seeing I can't be there it was almost perfect.

Thanks for the awesome coverage

Wow...

This is the kind of series that our sport needs. I am so proud of both teams for delivering the goods. Road trip to MBYC in a few years for this RCYC cheerleader! Match racing in one design boats like this is so much more exciting than a yacht design format. It's about the sailors and the tactics. Love that there were so many lead changes.

Big congratulations to Mike Milner and the race crew. Challenging conditions handled professionally (as always). They must have been *** themselves on the last race when the wind seemed to be dying.

Better result if our hometeam had persevered...? We'll never know. Alek and the Honour team made us very proud. Having to go to the States to bring the little silver knick knack back to its rightful home at the RCYC will be a rallying call for Canadian sailors in the next Cup series. This years drama should ensure lots of interest for Challenger and Defender series next time.

Congrats to Bob Hughes and the prophetically named Heart Breakers!

Sorry SA shit the bed right at the climax! We had lots of users and we are likely going to have to take the next step, server and support-wise.
