Now New Zealand will be in a position to change the race rules (within the bounds of the Deed of Gift). There is a possibility (some of us hope) that the next challenge will be in "real" boats - i.e. monohulls. While the "flying catamarans" were surely exciting to watch, it was not the America's Cup racing sailors have grown to love over the last 180 or so years! Further, it was somewhat dismaying to realize there was not one American sailor on Oracle - the American boat! How sad!
In any case, Maritime Maunder offers a most sincere congratulations to Team Emirates New Zealand on a sensational victory! We will await with baited breath to see what happens next!
Until next time,
