You cannot script this stuff

Wow… Wow wow wow!!! You cannot script the fairy tale that was today, with Artemis Racing taking the win after chaos, and the young challenging team of Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) getting a bit of resurgence following the 34th America’s Cup defeat with their victory overall. What a day on the race course and […]
