The Americans have just won the Boston to Brisbane Tall Ship Race, but the French have lodged an official protest. They claim that the Morgan was aided unfairly by the aircraft carrier USS Temulence.

The document clearly proves that seven fighter planes aboard the flight deck of the Temulence are using their jets to propel the tall ship across a calm sea.
