And to the Etonic-shod crews of all the 12s, we wish fair skies, a good breeze and sure footing.

?If the America's Cup is lost, it will not be for lack of good footwear. In fact, the crew of Intrepid appears to be better shod than anyone since that Greek goddess attached a pair of wings to Mercury's sandals. Some 70 pairs of gift shoes have been received from various manufacturers. However, the shoe officially designated as part of the Intrepid uniform is the Top-Sider.—ED.
