    I'd have thought it unbelievably boring unless one had something extreme to play with.

    I never understand why people complain after they drag their kids to view anarchy. It's not as if Sail World is not right there.

    You're not posting enough milfs. Up your game.

    I don't understand your idea there, mind expanding and comparing more explicitly?

    I didn't realise that, I thought he just measured boat lengths against recorded time. If time is determined by the time water drops take to fall, using s=ut + 1/2 at2, then it's pointless.

    Dz is a red yellow herring. Distance divided by time gives speed.

    Three nice fish is about right.

    They must have set the default as off Northland.

    I reckon. On the second attempt at hoisting their sails. The slackers.

    It would appear Bernasconi has made his choice.

    Last time around, Bernasconi said the cat with the most stable flight would win. I think events showed he was correct. This time around I believe he has said words to the effect that the boat which does best off the foils will have the advantage. I will go with Dan.

    I've read quite a few accounts of the end of the 2nd NZ Div's campaign. So, no heavy street fighting in Trieste for NZ troops, which the partisans did much of anyway. I don't believe the US Marines took part in the Italian campaign so would hardly have led a parade. I've never heard of a victory parade in Trieste. Perhaps there was one in [Vienna] Venice which was also liberated by 2nd NZ Div. Crap history in all respects, as your link demonstrates.

    The D-Spar is supplied equipment; what can you do to it? The rules say the sail has to be attached on both sides. Basically the top 13 feet are the part that we can control as we wish. The bottom 6 feet or so we can control as we wish as well. Between those zones is the challenging part. A lot of it is about the batten-setup orientation, which is open in this midzone. We can change battens a lot to try different positions and tapers, which all makes a big difference. Again, the shape we want on the windward side might not be what we want on the leeward side. Are there restrictions on batten materials? They can’t be inflatable. They have to be able to laid flat, but can be tapered; however, there is plenty you can do there. There’s a lot of money for batten manufacturers to make this time around. – Full story https://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2019/08/28/on-trimming-the-ac75s-twin-skin-main/

    Funny how you liked hearing Salty SeaCock's political bullshit.

    Crap history on so many levels.
