    What the actual fuck did I just watch?

    We still start most kids off in Opti's. You really need to be 45kg before considering a P-class and that rules out the young ones. My 11 yo has an old family P but at only 30kg can only sail it in under 5knts. The progression from Opti is pretty quickly into Open Skiff's (previously Open Bic's). There's plenty of P's still around but they don't seem to attract the kids coming through now. For whatever reason the Skiff's are the "cool" boats they all want to sail.

    If anyone wants a trip down memory lane then the old Team NZ Forum is still alive and well on Web Archive's "WayBack Machine". http://web.archive.org/web/20190305233031/http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?/topic/156565-team-nz/ Perhaps someone with more web skills than I could help Admins reinstate this?

    Sounds like a podracer.

    i fucked up

    I have to say that this is unusual situation. Good on Admin for fessing up - but the real lesson here is that we cannot expect online content to be for ever. Some of these deleted threads had years, like what, six+ years (?) of content that was provided by the hive. This will never be collated in the same way again. Photo's, videos, diagrams, drawings, insights, inside knowledge ... all gone. Amazing. SA is actually a fairly low level environment. None of us have any control over our FB, Twitter, Insta accounts etc. One major corporate meltdown and it's gone - perhaps a decade of your life you thought was archived. As an example, some US Govt. departments are still waiting to retrieve their data after the Mega Upload, debacle and takedown in 2012 Cyberspace ain't permanent.

    This is a curious item to find listed on TradeMe - an AC50 head sail. The seller is located on the North Shore with user name "star_spangle". Is that you Deano? https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=2415445002&tm=email&et=47&mt=06B7829C-9F12-4B17-AFC8-1DD3CE3F2853

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    It must very tempting to glues some random shit on the foils and paint some teeth on it knowing full well the other teams will pore over the photos going "what the fuck is that?!" Until, perhaps, the measurement committee decide that removing said random shit constitutes a new foil

    Geez, those up tip foils might be enough to drag DL out of retirement

    How is this not over early?

    Which race was this? I read in another thread that Race 3 had a late change to the course due to a wind shift. The whole fleet appeared to sail well across the boundary on the first reach but no one was penalised. Graphic overlay hadn't been updated.

    Riding very high in comparison too. Cant wait to see Flipper in a decent breeze.

    Ridiculous. This isn't sailing redefined if I can't watch it. Thanks @Mozzy Sails your commentary sounded like it was a great racing.

    Looks like I can watch the live broadcast at half past midnight Sat morning (NZ time), or even better, delayed coverage at 10am the same day. WAIT A MINUTE - looks like I need to sign up to a minimum $60 per month/per annum subscription service I don't want. Fuck you Sail GP. I really enjoy this series but I cannot afford it. Will catch a few snippets on FB next week.

    And now there's a game. Will see if my 11yo Opti/BIC(Skiff)/XBox mad son thinks this is the business. In all honesty I'll take his opinion as gospel. https://sailgp.com/news/sailgp-enters-esports-arena/
