    Dear god, how do you make such lengthy (and reasonably coherent) posts from your phone? I'd sound like a drunken moron ... hang on a minute ....

    Quick and easy way to bypass that lock-off which will work with lots of sites. Using Chrome browser, Right Click the image and select "Inspect". The line of code with the image should be highlighted. Right click the image link (be careful it's not the code past the .jpg) and select Open in new tab. Once again, Right-click image in new tab and download as per normal. Screenshot below.

    Perhaps the the RO has come up with the most perfect drug smuggling operation ever conceived. How to move narcotics from Europe > Africa > Australia > Europe without ever making landfall and in plain sight of the 12 or so of us actually following the race, Brilliant

    Thanks Chay The tracker still shows him at Kingston Beach, zero knots. A glitch with the tracker, hopefully. Posted to FB 2 hours ago ... Tapio checking his mast just found a problem with yankee halyard snap shackle open so now has to come down to ease halyard then back up again to reconnect then tension so may leave in a few hours.

    That seems to be what was claimed but as you say, perhaps lost in translation. I would have thought a lot else would fail before a 2" slot was torn in in the mast! Clearly a lot more to come on this.

    I have a question and apologise it it's already been discussed. Do the contestants know where they are in relation to each other? In the original race RKJ didn't know if he'd been passed by Moitessier and vice versa so both were pushing really hard against a phantom opponent. The only way the'd know proximity this time is if RO had advised?

    I'm pretty excited about this SailGP league. I'm also excited about AC36 and can't see why we need to divide into camps over which we support. One thing they need to get right is the broadcast. It needs to be free, online, and not geo-blocked in any way. If it goes to pay TV they're fucked.
