America's Cup (Sailing)

Is anyone else watching the America's Cup?
I was bored one day so I decided to watch the first race of the Louis Vuitton cup (saw Oracle USA on an episode of top gear); I have been hooked since the first race (not sure if you can call the fist race a race considering there was only one boat). I am a total noob when it comes to sailing, and I didn’t realize there was so much to it.

I am reading that a lot of people dislike the new AC72s they are using this year and call these races boring, I think they are riveting especially the pre-starts but then again this is my first foray into the world of sailing.

Anyways discuss, I am pretty sure this will be a relatively dead thread.

The speed of the catamarans is unreal, but I still miss the old monohulls.
