full sail

After an awful start, the USA team for the America's Cup has made a stunning turnaround. There have been more highs, crashes, twists and turns than a Mexican telenovela and the race series is stretching into the history books. Will the USA come from far behind to win the series or will New Zealand prevail?

SB will wake up at 4am to watch it. It's quite a turnaround from the teeth gnashing of a few weeks ago. We wish that his father was alive to enjoy the spectacle with him. It was something that he had in common with my uncle, the other thing being that they died too soon. While my uncle never raced professionally like SB's father, he sailed a larger boat and reached many more exotic destinations than JR did in his racer.

I bet that they could have exchanged stories.
