  1. Its pretty low. Remember when NZ defended the cup and we had the Italian Flag flying from the Harbour Bridge?

    How did Barker go in that race vs Oracle when he was 300m ahead?

    Agreed. Upwind speed won the last cup- hopefully history repeats.

    Hmmm the wind has built over the last 30min.... fingers crossed it starts dropping soon or at least Artemis went for the light wind foils too or this could be a hard day....

    I guess it also depends what Artemis goes for, if they have their low wind set too then as the wind gets lighter both teams will benefit and as it gets heavier may not go quite so well..... oh well- one hour

    The wind at Pearl Island is all over the place with the average speed being 5-15 in the last hour? This could make sir some very interesting foil set up could even have different boards on each side to sort of cover the bases? Could end up pretty flukey too!

    Two thoughts from today: i) Could Artemis and ETNZ different thresholds for their boards. Artemis has always been quicker in heavier winds and less good when its lighter so perhaps they have more of a medium wind and heavy wind set up, where as ETNZ has more of a light wind and medium wind set up? ii) Could the issue be with the starts be that ETNZ has no eyes looking backwards? Looking at Burling today he is really throwing himself around to look behind him, compared to the Swedes where you can ensure that Percy or someone is looking backwards and giving information to the helmsmen?
