Yeah I agree. Whatever they decide to do I have a feeling it will be awesome. I have at least 3-4 years to come up with the money to go to California if that is where it will be held.

I always wanted to go to California anyway so it's all good as far as I see it! :D

Don’t know if forum readers follow cup news, but looks like it will be catamarans for the next one (unfortunately). Maybe it will make the races entertaining for TV as Coutts points out, but personally I’d prefer monohulls on courses more exposed to the open ocean. Any thoughts on this new boat class for the Cup?

Here are some overview links:

Here is a summary of the AC72 class rule. At least it’s manual grinders:
