I am surprised no-one has discussed this here yet. Some very interesting developments in yacht design in this cup with the foiling catamarans. They're at the Louis Vuitton Cup finals stage at the moment with Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa (Italy) fighting it out to see who will race cup-holders Oracle Team USA for the cup. The official youtube channel is here for races and practice footage: http://www.youtube.com/user/AmericasCup/videos There have been already been some scandals typical of America's Cup competitions including Oracle's ongoing troubles with revelations they modified their one-design boats in a lead-up series - i.e. cheated in the worst possible way in a series where all the boats are required to have identical specs. That case is still be heard by the governing court for yachting (called the International Jury).
