    The Winning Foils AC36

    The latest sailingworld article seems to have a completely different foil. Attachments for hinges visible up the trailing edge. I brought up the blacks a bit to make it more visible. edit: white square in the middle and white probly bog fills over the attachments. Hinge line visible.

    Good point. Some of the shots of the camber in the etnz bat wing were stunning. The light falloff on the hull is almost exact mid ship, for the trailing edge of the foil to be lit wouldn't it be further from the boat, or deeper, than the depth of the leading edge? Perhaps it's a flap that's in full lift position?

    ", a date dependent upon the arrival of supplied parts from overseas." A bit of a pre winge perhaps? Bet there are some ovens cooking around NZ over Xmas, the 50's and the supplied parts and etnz's boats.

    SailGP Series

    I really think it deserves its own anarchy soon, with topics for each team, every venue and series, the class dev, ect. If it all doesn't, fingers crossed, end in heaps of abandoned carbon.

    And it's ironic that it may be the only competitive event where every team is bankrolled by the same invisible sponsor. Why isn't it called gp brought to you by Oracle?

    Should be a k instead of a t on the shirt.

    A few shots of Team NYYC's foils as they have come up lately. I still don't buy the lighting on the trailing edge of foil in the first shot; none of the sailors have any light on their aft shoulders, I know maybe the carbon can give funky optics but the wing in the first shot doesn't look like the ones i grabbed from their debut video. The white strip is on the leading edge in the shots from the video, so that can't account for the lighting on the trailing edge of the first shot.

    ^and maybe a lot simpler to control manually

    Rather than using the combined vector of a flat foil to achieve the same thing. As surf sailor mentioned regards the wake beside the mule, I guess the effects of surface piercing may compromise the flat design wing. Gonna be interesting to see the etnz design upon launch next year. And this may have been what mini frack was obscuring in their video.

    Not in the sailing sequence. Water is one of the 3 holy grails of cg, insanely expensive in 3d. These folk have other things to do. The blur on the UK footage on the other hand would be a simple 2d track, with no masking of the live plate. Still not sure wtf they would be hiding.

    But it hasn't had a successful event whereas AC has been going for over 160 years. How can these two events be compared?

    It's gonna really deserve its own , whatever you call anarchy level, directory. Gp 50 anarchy. It's gonna need topics for every team, venues, boat dev. Build it and he will come.

    As we get into show time with these boats this thread really needs to go some where else as the event itself once realized has sweet fuck all to do with the AC. Not knocking it, just saying it's time to cut the cord.
