For anyone who thinks the one-tack-or-gybe-and-make-a-timed-run-to-the-line prestarts of the current America’s Cup is an affront to all AC lovers; for anyone who yearns for dial-ups, penalties, and close boat on boat action; for anyone who thought the IACC class could be thrilling to watch, I give you this pre-start from the 2007 Cup.

It almost helps that the commentary is in excitable Italian.

Ah, the good old days.
