    Fair, that was a total troll. There is just so much of it in here that it rubs off if you spend too much time on these boards.

    Who goes over first?

    I’ve seen these boats power up from a standstill, they aren’t the impossible prospect that some here paint them as. It’s just going to take some serious skill and seamanship to get the best out of them. Hmmm, sounds like sailing eh. Last I looked, AC was loaded with some of the best sailors in the world across all teams. I think this iteration will not only do just fine, in my opinion it is already the most enjoyable, fascinating AC in decades.

    That’s great, but what we want to see is some actual moving parts, like a boat, sailing and stuff. or did BA realise he had hired the guy who designed the tractor to design his 75, only to remember that he needs to build a fast boat this time.

    I think it sounds damn exciting. Force your opponent off the foils, gain massive advantage. Great! I’m going to choose to believe Gashby over someone who spends too much time smoking Smack out of daddy Larry’s glass pipe, when GA says they will be the best boats ever for match racing starts. Don’t know about the rest of you, but GA has just a bit more credibility than old trolldaddy here. also, have you seen these fuckin boats! They are grand, fast, sexy and sleek. Turn on a dime and maintain their speed through the manoeuvre. Not sure what more you want from match racing in the 21st century bro? Slow boats doing 12 knots and only inches of advantage bow to bow? That shit was exciting, loved it, those days are gone for the pinnacle of our sport. Plenty of other places you can get that if that’s what you want, but by definition there can be only one pinnacle, for our sport that is AC. Not about to change anytime soon and that’s just fine.

    I think it's important to remember that this clip is them turning up into the harbour, de-powering, setting it down and rounding up. This isn't exactly them sending it! They had just reached down the shore looking mighty fast and stable loose. As I say they came up on me faster than I was expecting.

    Sail angle more like SW and it looks like the breeze has come around almost W. The WSW 12-18 was just what bean rock was reading at the approx time. Nothing scientific about any of it.

    So I wasn' t going to post this as I pretty much missed the shot, never really got over to Te Aihe. She came in faster than I was expecting. Also my little drone had to work hard to climb into that breeze. Because of this I had to zoom in and lost quite a bit of quality. Seeing as nothing much else has been going on publicly this windy week, I thought I would post it anyway, here is a little hype piece just to keep us frothing. Haha. It's the last two minutes of sailing from Monday. She isn't the most stable, but not as bad as it could be considering how patchy and shifty it would have been under north head. We look a fair way off that ultra stable mode we had when we just followed what the computer instructed. Also she is pointing pretty high here, looked scary fast in some of the runs on Monday. People just love those images of spray coming off the bow, nobody(including myself) was able to illustrate how fast she looked when she turned down and took off. It was impressive. I will try to get out on a boat for a practice day soon and get some footage closer to the action.

    Can’t wait to see your photos of her sailing back down the harbour this afternoon.

Youtube compression sucks! Interesting to note how far forward the crew is compared to AM.
