Punch on: Open thread Boxing Day 2012
The Sydney to Hobart yacht race starts today. Perhaps it gets some of you excited, but let’s face it, those Super Maxis have got nothing on these virtual spaceships which contest the America’s Cup.
This boat pictured here is set to race in next year’s event in San Francisco Bay. Its sail is bigger than the wing of a Boeing 747 and it can literally go faster than the wind. When it’s really flying, it really is, well, flying! Only the fin touches the water.
Cricket or sailing on the telly today? Both? Neither? How was Christmas? Anything else you feel like sharing?
