    I love the old mono hulls. People like the foiling speed this is the best of both worlds. At a guess, They are going to be quick - 30-40 knots. They are going to lack the maneuverability that the cats had, So that will make things interesting in the starting box and tactics Will the be able to foil the whole time? - Doubt it I wonder what they are going to use up top sail/wing etc 2021 is a very long way away. As much as I would have liked them to start racing things quicker - 2 year cycle, I think its important to keep it at 4 years. Its a grand event

    in the 2nd race, first gybe after mark 1 - NZ did not lay to the gate of mark 2 while OU did meaning we had to do an extra gybe putting NZ behind more after the mark was that a tactical mistake, or something we had to do because we were behind at mark 1?

    We all know the kiwis are good in low wind... but the other side of low wind is patchy lottery win. No one wants to fluke a wind. Let's all wish for a stable 6-7 knots - on the flip side, I would like to see the obstacles sail again in 20-24 knot

    Same foils different tip... plus foil "raked" (I don't know the term) to look bat foilish... with no more adjustment space
