America's Cup is "Formula One on water," says Sir Ben Ainslie
QUOTE-UNQUOTE: "When these boats turn the corners the g-force is serious. If someone has made a mistake in crossing the boat when you're making a turn they'll just get wiped off the side of the boat. They won't have a chance of staying on. At those speeds, with those forces, with the technology, you feel like a racing car driver or a pilot – it's that sort of intensity. You have to be focused and on your game. It's amazing. To think back 25 years and imagine a boat like this, it's unthinkable really. It's amazing and totally revolutionised the sport – for the better." –Sir Ben Ainslie (GBR), quote in a long article in the Telegraph (UK) today about AC35 starting later this month in BDA.
