John Branch and Malia Wollan:
Before this weekend, there have been 11 races, eight of which had one boat and three featured two boats. Emirates Team New Zealand has handily won all three over Italy’s Luna Rossa, once despite a sail clip coming undone in the middle of the race, which stands as the most exciting moment of competition so far.
Absurdity of the one-boat “races” aside, I think we’ve gotten to the point where America’s Cup is now under-hyped. I went to one of the races a couple weeks ago, everything about it was pretty great.
