Well, if a skipper can resign from the BMW Oracle challenge team after making one to many mistakes, then it is time for Torben Grael to go as well. He did nothing in the last Volvo except refuse to take advice from Adrienne Cahalan and then participated in the shocking decision to sack Adrienne Cahalan. It appears that this was due to Grael's inability to take advice from anyone else.

Well, the tactics onboard Luna Rossa have been poor, and this would be the responsibility of Grael. Time for Grael to leave and possibly Luna Rossa may win a race or two before the New Zealanders win the LVC final.

The race last night was an excellent example of how to loose from a winning position. I feel sorry for the James Spithill, he will learn from this to put the tactician in the back of his mind and to sail for advantage.

regards, Mark
