In my younger days I sailed and raced sailboats. As much as I loved to race, watching a race was a tedious affair. As a spectator sport sail boat racing could be quite boring. But recently the use of advanced sailing technology has been allowed in sailboat racing. These wind machines are fast (sometimes even faster then the wind) and fly on the surface of the water. It is becoming one of the most exciting sports to watch. The 2013 America's Cup Race in San Fransisco is proof of the audience that can be attracted when combining racing with the latest technology.
