  1. Found this old video. Italian yacht +39 dismantled in Valencia seven years after the 2007 America's Cup. In the video a very sad Luca Devoti. https://farevela.net/2014/11/26/americas-cut-cosi-finisce-picconate-storia-iacc-video-lopinione-luca-devoti/

    I suppose it's not something that you can change without structural modifications if you have not foreseen it from the beginning.

    Yes, they choose to remove the backstays in order to further minimize drag

    EB and LE bent and changed at will the rules well over the limit of sportsmanship. That's why they were thugs. There is no evidence that GD or P$B will be the same. In fact I'm sure of the contrary. Wait until the protocol will be released, then you will have the right to express your agreement or not, based on what you like in the sailing world. But even then, any moral judgement will be unfair, because it should be based on facts. Like the facts EB and LE did. IMHO

    Many people were hoping for a return to monohulls. "They will be very powerful boats, but technical details, for example if foils (the drifts that raise them from the water) or canting keels will be used, will be revealed at a later stage."

    What is this? A random sequence of Italian words without any meaning? If you try to explain in English I can help you with the translation :)))
