Matthew Norman Column: America's Cup yacht sinks.

Byline: Matthew Norman

FANS of yachting will be saddened by news that a boat built at a cost of pounds 3million for the America's Cup took four minutes to sink after hitting mud off the Californian coast. Since its skipper Dennis Connor is too experienced a sailor - a four times America's Cup winner, no less - to make such a basic error by accident, it's obvious what his game is. So perhaps this is the time to remind him that if he wants to qualify for the command a British warship, he'll have to go naval college first like anyone else.
