I have been watching it, but the boats do not look like sailboats. In addition all the advertising plastered on the boats ruins any aesthetic appeal, which is so much a part of sailing. I watched only two races and that was enough for me. If NZ wins I hope they return the the elegance to the sport, and use real sailboats. I think they owe this to the world because, if I remember correctly, it was one of their own who ruined the race in San Diego with his big boat sneak attack, leading to Connor's subsequent response with a catamaran.
