    AC TV Coverage

    I'll be desperately searching for the world feed if that is the case.

    The NEXT AC RULE

    Wot? Are you really asserting only two people in the ETNZ crew had ever been in a sailing race before the last America's Cup?

    Boats and foils comparison

    They were overstressed at one point. I'm guessing a challenger finals race with Artemis when winds were stronger than anticipated, maybe even the first day of challenger finals.

    Madness that way lies.

    A venturi creates a low pressure area.

    I assumed pre box meant before either had entered the box.

    That would fit with a low pressure area under the hull vaporising water.

    Yet they say the fastest boat always wins the America's Cup.

    Christmas Regatta

    Wasn't one of ETNZ's goals that everything would be free to view or was that only the cup itself?

    That seems to counter my understanding of what's supposed to happen. Air pressure on the outer side of the sail is supposed to be less, which is what impels the boat. But if the gap between the inner side of the hull and the sail acts as a venturi then air pressure will be reduced as airflow speeds up and consequently power will be increased. Or not.

    Yes, you said that before. I guess I have to repeat my observation/query. How is one not blinded if one is on port tack going to windward in a close cross when one is on the port side of the vessel? What am I missing?

    I would have thought going to windward in a cross he'd be blinded on port tack.

    I'm not sure about that. I'd like it to be able to cross a few bows.

    Dude, I hope you're not putting yourself forward as an advertisement for the Navy's thinking.

    Media release 20 March 2020 Eleven new cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand have been confirmed in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases to 39. The number of new cases is in line with what we’ve seen in the past few days. Around 1000 tests were processed yesterday. Where public health staff have fully investigated the 11 cases there is again a clear link to overseas travel. In several other cases, the test results were only confirmed this morning and these are still being followed up fully. Public health staff interview every case in detail so we can quickly trace their movements and identify all close contacts and isolate them. https://www.health.govt.nz/news-media/media-releases/11-new-cases-covid-19

    No, break action is the most reliable, never had a failure to feed, any crappy reload would always feed and go bang. Especially maximum shot and a lot of slow burning powder loads, for shooting possums out of the crowns of shelter belt trees.

    Mine was fussy, it wouldn't eat crap heavy reloads.

    I dumped it for a Miroku. Much better.
