no doubt the TV folks held sway on the short course format. But it's a specious stance. NBC Sports Channel is dedicating 2 & 1/2 hours to today's racing. plenty of time to accommodate two 7 leg races and all the replays, analysis and commentary they want. Everyone lost sight of the fact that the upwind legs almost always deliver the greatest opportunity for gains, shifts and turnabouts. In other words: more action. Short course = short sighted. ( besides there could always be a provision to call a race early if one boat is X minutes ahead.) Next time!
