America's Cup Qualifiers off to "smashing start" in Bermuda
QUOTE-UNQUOTE: "Crewmen on SoftBank Team Japan had to leap clear of Ainslie's port hull as it smashed onto their starboard hull. The collision punched a hole in the bottom of the British boat's carbon fiber hull and caused part of it to delaminate." –Bernie Wilson writing for the AP, via the US News & World Report, in his superb wrap-up article on today's AC35 racing in BDA. This is the best succinct summary I've seen of the day's racing. A MUST READ for AC fans. And you gotta love his headline.
