Surprising lack of comments on here what does everyone think so far?

Missed the first three races. Saw the fourth. Despite not being a match-race fan, actuially really rather entertaining stuff. The boats are pretty evenly matched, and we're seeing actual tactical boat-on-boat racing.

The lack of comments is likely down to lack of interest......

Fantatstic is what I say

Its what we always wanted these races to be but all doubted would happen.

Giant Cats doing 40+ knots and taking it to each other in a proper race.

Cant wait for the race

I think the lack of comments is more likely to be due to the fact that everyone is watching the sailing instead!

Probably due to the previously verbous sceptics being too busy  helping them selves to a large dose of humble pie whilst watching the spectacular match racing . ;)

I think Shirley Robertsons comments at the press conference after the first day summed it up well, she thanked the skippers for the close racing and said that everyone had heard them all saying it would be close and no-one believed them, however everyone now believes them!
We get a night off tonight and then it starts again on Tuesday.

Lack of interest! Really? I don't think I can remember more people standing by the edge of the water watching sailing than there is currently watching in San Francisco.

28500 spectators on the piers for race 1 , another 16000 in the marine park  never mind elsewhere,

Plus whatever were watching on you tube and tv.
Close racing,incredible boats and high speed I can totally understand the lack of interest.
I for one would certainly be rather watching a couple of 12 meter dinosaurs drifting arround at four knots!
