...and it goes on....

"Sir David Ainslie's crew made a strong statement in their pursuit of the America's Cup today in their first race...."

That journalist should be sacked.

Maybe thats been the problem all along - David has been driving the boat instead of Ben ....

BTW - whilst I lurk on Sailing Anarchy (since 2009) and rarely post there as it is such a toxic and brutal environment, it is a source of information - if you can wade through all the crap and BS and bile. But, through all that, there isnt a definitive view as to why the BAR boat isnt quite as quick as some of the others (tho getting quicker day by day). Is it down to foils, control systems or summat else?

(sorry if this should really live in the AC forum thread)

It's really showing up the pathetic quality of sailing "journalism" in this country. The biggest story in the sport in this country for the last few months has been the well known lack of performance of LRBAR. But have we seen any investigative digging to come up with some reasons? Nope. Not a sausage. 

So what went wrong? And why? 

Come on Y&Y. Do some journalism.

Not interested unless it's made of wood, clinker built or designed 50 years ago.

Bit of a news blackout unless you subscribe to BT Sport.  Even the official Americas Cup app won't show any actual racing; just an animated representation and lots of dull interviews with team captains.  Do they actually want people to be interested or just make some dosh.  I'm especially peed as bit of my pension fund seem to be funding all the teams with my money :-(

I've been a bit miffed about the coverage, I was all ready to follow it closely but live coverage has been impossible to find.
I think all I've seen is highlights of the crashes - no racing at all - and I'm only aware of the results due to fairly committed web searching.  I'm particularly upset with the BTsport channel on virgin TV which is supposed to show live streamed racing, but doesn't show anything when I know the racing is on, and the channel listing doesn't work so you can't set it to record.

I just hope next time it's covered better.  I remember seeing bits of the last AC coverage and thinking it seemed like finally they had cracked the graphic overlays to make sailing watchable and vaguely interesting to those who don't understand the sport.

rant over.

Live coverage on BT sport is excellent - every race covered
