AC45s @SF: Ben Ainslie, too good to be True?

Is this guy that good? Of course he has a really good team and they are having an excellent sync after only one event. But nevertheless this is the best performance any skipper had on these series so far.

Best debut on an official race was Darren Bundock winning it. Ainslie just took one entire event to get things going and is dominating the fleet in his second.
Bundy is training Ben, so he can´t have a better multihull teacher. Beyond next results, what we've seen till now is the mark of a different sailor. Left: Gold Medalists Ainslie & Outteridge, we will see them helming the 72s...? Image Gilles Martin Raget.
