It just seems wrong. I mean, having the challengers to the America’s Cup racing off of Valencia. As in Spain, not California. For decades, the challenge was held off the coast of the US (either East or West). Then it went Down Under. Then it went to the land of the Kiwis. Now it’s off the shores of Spain.
Perhaps doubly wrong because the last US boat got eliminated earlier this week when the BMW/Oracle team lost to the Italian Luna Rossa.
Oh well, New Zealand is on the verge of beating Spain (if it hasn’t done so by the time you read this). If so, it will be the Kiwis against the Italians to see who earns the right to challenge the current cup holders – the Swiss Alinghi team.
I’m not sure if any of the races will be televised here in Hawaiʻi, but if so, I will try to watch, whenever I can.
