    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

    Im so nervous.. Oracle may have what it takes. I am looking forward to tomorrows racing, but I am already sick to the stomach! Imagine how ETNZ crew are feeling

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

    Its really hard to tell how quick they are without virtualeye err.. i posted this before I got to the 3 min mark... now for the past 2 mins, i have just watched them with a hull in the water. Not sure what they are doing

    with that much hull down, i was expecting 6kts. I think it is too late to go into next weeks racing with copied turns. they have to sail a perfect race with no hulls touching the water. they cant risk a fast turn and drop the hull. they must sail good turns that they know how to do EVERY time Kiwis, they are hiding their boat. maybe they will be out tomorrow. I think their boat improvements may be straight line speed. you dont need to practice that. if they can keep their turns tight fast and stable, a bit of added straight line speed will not let oracle get near. I suspect that even if oracle do win a start and get to the first mark, there is nothing stopping ETNZ from catching up and passing - wether oracle cover or not, NZ will get in close and pass no matter what I would usually say "let oracle split and they will overtake you, never let oracle split" - it is the opposite now

    Anyone know what the wind was while oracle were practicing? Maybe even too low for NZ to keep itvup I'm just not discounting them yet.
