Was watching the first race this afternoon, and Oracle pretty much showed Alinghi up.

They may have had one of the three largest gennakers in the world, but that rigid wing sail pretty much took the race by storm

Turned out to be a bit of a one horse race really - after all of the legal crap the racing was a bit of a let down!
