Americans saying they will go back to keel boats if they win, 60 to 100 footers.

All depends what that actually means (if that actually happens). There are plenty of yacht races that encompass boat sizes in that range, so what would be different? It would need to be adventurous designs else what would be the point? AC has always been about design/technology - whatever the class, and life has moved on well past the butt-ugly hippo-shaped pot-bellied 12metres. Anyway, thats off-topic ;-)

Sadly INEOS got knocked out of the Prada Cup but the best boat definitely won.
Have you tried watching the Mozzy Sails posts on YouTube on the Americas Cup & Prada Cup? If you have not tried watching them watch this on Luna Rossa's tacks.

Mozzy Sails analysis on the America's Cup is really excellent.
There are many of these postings and they are well worth watching. The one (actually in 2 parts) a few days ago on mainsails is also well worth watching. They cover lots of stuff on the sails and how they are controlled. How the teams are taking advantage of the rules. NZ seem to have taken it to the limit by setting the deck very low and the mast ball high. They have then extended the Mainsail below the mast ball by as much as 18 inches so they have got much more sail area. It seems that this is a loop hole in the way that the rules are written. Clearly they planned this months ago when the hull was designed....

I think that Mozzy is Tom Morris (RS800 champion) from Hayling Island. He seems to have access to many more video feeds than the normal YouTube coverage on the racing (which is also good, by the way).
