I'm getting excited for the catamarans.

Very cool. I'm not a big sailer only for lack of a boat. I took a sailing class in college and absolutely fell in love. One of my bucket list items is to be rail meat(at least) in a race. Anyone have any leads for me? ;)

Did Michael Bay direct that? Watching it, I half-wondered if the catamarans were going to transform into robots. :)

TA - Haha, that's true. But come on it gets the blood pumping for such a big change in the sport.

Jordan, the best thing that I can tell you is ask some friends that sail to ask their friends at a club if you can be weight on the life lines one weekend. Up here it isn't hard with such close proximity to the bay and the fact that most people I know sail most of the year.

Here's another one, cheesy music but no special effects.

AC 45 going over 27 knots. That's almost 32 MPH. Wow
