Now that catamarans have become the de facto choice of the America’s Cup, why aren’t there still cats being raced in the Olympics? Tornados provided great exciting racing, and established some legendary sailors over the years.
The thing about watching yacht racing is that the faster, wilder, more on the edge it gets, the more likely it is that people will watch it. Especially here in the U.S. So, I am all for windsurfing, 49ers, etc., and I think it stinks when exciting boats are eliminated.
Perhaps this will change. C cats, or A cats would be spectacular. What do you think?
