    Det kanske blev lite för mycket (och kanske för dyrt) att bygga de nya enskrovsbåtarna och de nya americas cup liknande kattorna till 2019 ?

    Whaddabout America’s Cup? Enskrov, 10-12 pers ombord, nationalitetsregel, pre regattas, Louis Vuitton ryker, Prada tar över. Foiling? Hur mycket entyp? Kostnader? Auckland? Dags för blur att ta upp trash talket? Saknade det under AC35.
