    Boats and foils comparison

    Pay attention prissy. The"almost consensus" should be good enough for most, being indicative of what teams reckon they will be competitive in. It is "almost" by 0.75 of a knot, as I mentioned and you are well aware of. You're alright but you don't come off as a natural troll.

    Of course you will have to wait until the end again to see what pistol Pete brings to the table. Do you remember the shock in the commentators voices as the spitbull was well schooled in BDA? "Left him in a deep, deep hole". You can guess all you want, but you will just have to wait.

    Na, that was the moment yesterday I saw something was up. I made a few calls but was unable to attend.

    i happened to catch on the webcam the moment Te Kahu was first wheeled out into the light. I was too far away to do anything about it.

    That ain't a cruise ship, that's the Overspray. Heading a little outside her usual charter by the looks of it.

    Multiple guesstimates on here of 30kt in 8 on etnz first gen boat. Almost consensus (give or take .75), of the same 8 kt lower limit as AC35. Opinions expressed by GA, GD, the Italian Guys, that these boats will be more maneuverable than the cats.

    Go deep, get foiling. Then some interesting tactics. There were some very interesting starts in 8 kt in bda, and from all accounts these boats will be as adept in light air. Expect manoeuvres to be even more important in a windward start box.

    Mmmm, based on what? It's just play racing after all, testing different goods whilst lining up against the competition may be informative.
  10. I predict it doesn't matter who comes first. Just who comes last.

    Long live the mule. I'm sure it will be a stellar spicy little craft. Just wish them good luck on the scaling into b2.

    Nice. Iges don't lie. So changes in space count. But it still doesn't discredit the big bulb theory. Except for pushing a big bulb around.
