The 34th America's Cup just keeps on delivering more and more excitement!
Not content with running a whole series of challenger "races" that mainly consist of one boat racing around the course by itself, it appears that a totally new tactic has been discovered!
If the tweets today from America's Cup Racing can be believed, those clever chappies at Luna Rossa have discovered a way of completing a one boat "race" even faster, scoring a "finish" in today's "race" only 10 mins 1.8 secs after the start.
The trick apparently was to ask the umpires to disqualify their non-existent opponent 10 minutes after the start.
I don't think I've ever seen such an audacious move before.
I almost peed myself.
