I used to crew on a sail boat, now a long time ago. I loved the race. The fun of the match. The fun of the win; or the loss. It was just amazing to work on a team that was kind. And sometimes we would run into funny moments. Like the time we ran aground so hard that we got the boat off by healing it with me at the top of the mast.
Watching the America's Cup, that same set of feelings comes up. Yes, higher stakes. Yes, much more money. And yet, when it comes down to boat to boat, the crew, the wind, the water, the tide.... and let the race be on.
Sport within a frame. Just there. Just now.
