The light breeze made for exciting racing

Believe it or not, I think the lighter breeze made the racing really exciting. At the last America’s Cup in San Francisco, there didn’t seem to be any difference in the boats going upwind or downwind because there were no changes if sails. At the America's Cup World Series in Portsmouth, the lighter breeze made the racecourse far more exciting with the need for code 0's ball if suddenly there was clear differentiation between upwind and downwind. It was way easier to describe and I think better for people to understand the difference in the upwind and downwind part of the racecourse.
