America's Cup

If anyone is interested then America's Cup is live on BT, available on Freeview channel 115 for the first couple of weeks.

The performance and complexity of these yachts are phenomenal and Bermuda is looking beautiful. The distance between win and not first can be measured in millimetres but mainly in singular errors of judgement.

Ben and team BAR are up shortly. Come on lads!

I had a look at the boats today on YouTube, just incredible how technology and sailing have combined. And how they shift!!

Shame about the last race. Ben nearly took the Japanese completely out the game. Still, we're top of the table.
