Don't know if anyone is keeping up with the Road to the Luis Vitton or America's Cup but Dennis Connor had a boat sink a few days ago in 17M of water! Opps. Apparently the rudder sheared off. I am trying to find out who designed the boat because in the Volvo Ocean race there were similar problems on the Farr designed boats and I know Bruce Farr designed a few of the boats for this years race, most noteable the Oracle Racing boats. What is even funnier than the Dennis Connor boat going down is the fact that the lead French boat was rammed by a Greenpeace boat and almost sunk. What were they doing spearing whales with a spinaker pole??? Should be some great racing come October. Chris Dixon on the Oracle boat is my pick for a challenger for New Zeland. What do you think is this the Year the Cup comes back to the US???
