If I did the time correction correctly, racing starts tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM EST.

Qualifying for F1 at Monza at 8. It will be a busy morning.

Got my bag packed and will fly over in a few hours, its quite windy so it should be cool to watch from the shore.
Driving on the wrong side of the road should be interesting...

If you have Direct TV you can watch the youtube replays on your TV. Just search Americas Cup in smart search. In fact you can watch anything that's on youtube that way.

If you don't have Direct TV.....loser.

Roundabouts are a nightmare when you're driving on the wrong side eek
I constantly had to remind myself to stay LEFT every corner I turned smile

Shot loads of pictures today, this place is pretty much perfect for close to share racing.

Conditions for Sunday fleet race (18 gusting to 30+) Best fleet race so far! Insane speed (one boat touched 30knts), capsize, pitchpoles, lead changes. Don't miss seeing it!

Yep, but I during the last series I lost the feed a few times missing the finish of one race. Frustrating. This way you can see it without that and when I want.

I watch it live on the big screen by piping it through my xoom's HDMI plug. Must suck to have to wait to watch replays.

CUT THE JIB!!! CUT THE JIB!!! laugh


Some of these teams could really do with some multihull experts though, just watch the GreenComm capsize where pretty much everything goes wrong.
They are actually sheeting in during the capsize and dont release the sheet when they right it causing it to flip over the other side.
You dont even have to be a pro sailor to prevent mistakes like that.
We where watching GreenComm prepare their boat before the races on saturday and you could tell from their bodylanguage that they somehow didnt feel confident.

I've been really impressed with the coverage coming from Plymouth. The commentary is much better than in Cascais. The big breeze conditions really show you what the boats can do, and reward the teams that can keep the boat upright and the gear working.

Agree it seems like some of the teams are pretty green when it comes to cats, it was even more obvious in Cascais but the consequences weren't as great. Overall I think this was an eye opener to some of the teams but also to spectators and TV viewers.

My friend who has little sailing experience and his friend who has none were glued to the screen watching a replay of day 1. He said it was more exciting to watch than soccer and baseball, obviously way more physical. Thats my opinion too but since I'm an avid sailor I wasn't sure how non-sailors would respond. But it looks like they really enjoy watching it.

Exciting times to be sure.

Actually, it must suck to have to stay home on a weekend morning and watch TV instead of sailing.

I defintitely feel for the guys who righted it, and it rolled to the other side. Wish I had a dollar for every time I've done that...

What can you say but WOW!!!???

Just watched the "Day 2" replay.

Sadly, they didn't take our advice on upgrading the checkered flag waver...

However, if all the races are sailed in this much breeze, I will definitely retract my issue with the champagne spraying...

I have some down time (thanks to a kidney stone or something) but had tm e to watch the same day 2 coverage. That was absolutely stunning. The speed trial runs, though, were run at what appeared to be an awful angle.
