    You used to rail on and on how sail GP would never make it to the start gate . Now you are whining about sustainability . You were wrong , we know it , you know it now accept it like a big boy and move on !

    They are doing well combining both the onboard and aerial footage in their presentation. The commentary seems to be on point as well . Pretty slick package overall .

    Looks like they pulled off a maneuver successfully, took their foot of the throttle as you can tell by the release of the main and sat her down to regroup . Normal test program technique but if it feels better calling it a “ flop “ feel free .

    Wasn’t t there a recent poster on this site that promised some sort of bizarre sexual act if AM pulled off a foiling jybe ? This wasn’t the first and only one apparently .

    Then as a racer I’m sure you can recall those times when if you were just a few feet more up the course you could have made that cross on port tack safely but just couldn’t pull the trigger . Conversely downwind and you might just be able to get to your competition on starboard and force him off the mark but missed by less that a boat length . .4 of a knot can make a big difference no matter what speed you are traveling at. .

    I’m not seeing a lot of loose lines being assigned to the stern of these type of boats these days . As this is just boat one of two perhaps that area is left open on this test mule for ease of access .

    If you haven't raced sailboats it might not seem like a lot . As was alluded to by others in this game it can mean the difference between winning and losing .

    As a grinder on everything from grand prix 50's to maxis including IACC boats for over 30 years I have to disagree . You can adjust yourself quite easily to a decent angle of lean and still give maximum effort . Where you would have a problem is in the side to side configuration when the boat is healing and you are on the leeward side. Then you will be both holding your body in position to keep from falling away from the handles while at the same time providing power to drive them. Doable of course but as a noticeable advantage my experience says no.

    How many challengers will there be?

    You almost had it correct until you added the IACC boat to the mix . Just comparing the budget to get the boats in the water exhibits the difference in budget quite well .

    Haven’t been around for a few weeks and it’s nice to see the “ race that will never happen I guarantee it “ according to one of our more prolific SA posters is still moving along and even at the very top of the AC forum threads .

    SailGP - Sydney Inaugural Regatta

    The name is different again but the song remains the same . This is the event that you guaranteed would never get off the ground yet here you are still the number one poster. You do realize that even your negative posts give the entire thread added momentum This must really be keeping you up at all hours

    A little financial update on the benefactor of this little venture . And here I thought he was only buying up all of Malibu California .
