    Default America's Cup - anyone else following it?

    This link gives quite a nice live look at the races without having to pay for the 3D progress.

    Currently we're looking good against Mascalzone.

    I got "live" pictures, but nothing is moving...is it supposed to be a streaming site?

    Looks pretty good all-in-all...even in stop-mo.

    I don't know the players this year...and don't recognize the boats...will try to get up to speed ASAP..

    Thanks for the heads up, Chill!

    ADDENDUM: Gadfry! It's even in HDTV too!

    The site is a little confusing, what with where the banners are to click and such...but stick with it...it's kewl!

    It has provision for Full screen viewing..think of the bandwidth these guys are using....no pixellation either!

    Right now I am looking at all the races so far...the US is in very good standing right now at flight 11...let's see what happens.

    Sounds like the US skipper has some Australian in him..he speaks with a very strange accent.

    Did you see the S. Africans break that spinnaker?

    ..when the Germans hit the +39 (Italian) boat's mast..great action! The +39 had just been new-masted the night before the start of the 1st flight..they hadn't had any sail-time with it up to that point..and they even went up to one week before the first race training on a 9-year old boat. Their right-turn start was impressive...and what a chance they took in the maneuver.

    To answer Chill's question..YES..I am watching it now!

    PS: Team Shosholoza looks strange...most members aren't sea-experienced at all, and making a great showing..but that's just the money running things I think. Those Dutch diamond mines pay well. .

    China team tipped up the american boat BMW Oracle and good on them too, bmw broke some gear and they could'nt launch ther headsil therefore china team had a lead of over 1000 meteres. Team new zealand i think will make it to the finals and take on alinghi.

    Unless Team NZ is playing "Posum" I don't think they will be in the final..
