    I'm going to take a wild guess that you are not a grinder . Pairs are stronger than solo as when you are on your power stroke ( over hand ) your opposing partner is in the weaker position ( underhand ) and you balance the power output.. As for power differences between the grinders those balance out and after you spend time with a partner it can work to your advantage . I could be quicker and take the lead at the beginning of a maneuver and carry my partner knowing he would finish strong . As for the handles rotating forwards they are for both grinders as " forward " with regards to the handles is just the way you are facing the pedestal. I've had a lot of experience in both situations .

    Does the name Ernesto Bertarelli ring any bells ?

    I’ve sailed a lot with Bill Trinkle , DC’s second in command and he said both cars were evil to sail . They even turned turtle once in front of the SDYC during one of the dog and pony shows . I had never seen this documentary, thanks for posting .

    That is correct as it stands . The real issue is as we get closer to the election donny will become more desperate and who knows what he will try to pull off . As it stands now what you have stated would take some movement by congress to modify what is presently in place. He has already laid the groundwork to claim his upcoming loss will be due to a “ rigged “ election which he feels will at least save some face as well as give his cult something to scream about in the future .

    Stick a fork in it

    Where the hell did you see I blamed the results of the virus on ETNZ. What the fuck seriously ? All i said was that the ROI is not what was hoped for and you lose your fucking mind and go off on a rant . You guys are getting way too defensive, chill man there will always be another CUP.

    Just a side note but weren't those " hordes of free spending AC fans " going to foot the bill for all this and even perhaps provide a profit ? The ROI on this certainly has taken a hit .

    Europe and Canada are preparing to bar any entry from the USA . The percentage of those that die once they have become infected is now up to 5% and climbing . This info is 2 days old .

    I feel your pain . In the 80’s I was a manufacturers rep for a variety of computer lines and one was Commodore I still have a Vic20 and Commodore 64 in storage somewhere .

    I think the S&S spot will end up being overflow parking or a swap meet / vendor area perhaps . .

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    Apparently ET and the challenger of record are at a bit of a quandary . ET wants a upper limit of 24 kts and the COR wants 20 kts for the prelim and 22 kts for the finals . More news to follow I’m sure .

    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 !

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    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 .
