Been a long time since I have seen this.

Things change quickly during sailing competition. [VIDEO]

Re: Who Remembers Australia's AC Boat Sinking?

I wonder if that was ever salvaged? Think of the wonderful huge state-of-the-art-of-the-time winches you could drag up...

Didn't one of US AC challengers in sink off of San Diego also?? Seem to remember that boat actually breaking in two. Seem to remember it was salvaged.

I remember a article in Proboat Builder about how a team of designers and builders who went about, cutting and extending a US entry down in NZ. I think it was damaged precipitating the rebuild. The cup was in NZ at the time.

I remember that day well. I was working in the Reichel-Pugh office in San Diego at the time. Not a good day.

If the Flyin' Hawaiian sinks, at least it won't be that fast.
Of course, it might break up that fast...
