    So they’re going to finish up in Newport this week and then moving to Pensacola. I wonder if they’ve been packing up the base and that’s why they haven’t been on the water much recently. I’ll be in Pensacola 10-31 & 11-1, but I think that’s way to soon for them to be sailing.

    When does AM make the move to Pensacola?

    whatever it’s called, the splash doesn’t look nearly as bad as this one from ETNZ, granted I don’t know exactly what was going on when ETNZ crashed down. I guess the scow bow is working. Picture is taken from this link. https://chriscameron.photoshelter.com/gallery/ETNZ-Testing-4-10-2019/G0000sHssfGCXwxk/C0000yI7IYVrJEZc?fbclid=IwAR0YxY5BZtK7Qdr5VXXdZ8pV3Si6tjTFBUbERvJkhl3FgQ_McsPVvkXS6mE

    Found this on YouTube, haven’t seen it posted anywhere in SA yet, maybe I missed it. Shows AM pop a wheelie in breeze, they seem to recover pretty quickly.

    You're right, I misunderstood the rule. Seems like they can go forward to deal with a sail change, ect. but they can't stay forward.

    I don't understand the Italian, but this part is interesting. Guess that's why they do the testing before taking it off to tack. How do they disconnect it if nobody can go forward?

    Hell if I know, just remember watching a Youtube video on it. About 1:05. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq8BLkHKS94

    There's a nice fairing that goes over that section. That picture is from a while ago, and it looks like the fairing would interfere with the Champagne smasher they have on the sprit. I remember seeing a cool video somewhere of them 3d scanning that section of the bow to 3d print a mold for the fairing. Pretty cool. e with the champagne bottle smasher they have mounted on the sprit.

    how to fix this line core hernia

    This... if you can't milk it back all the way it helps to wrap the rope in a prusik, attach the prusik to something solid, and grind it through a winch a few times.

    Holy shit! I guess that's the advantage of launching so much earlier than everyone else.

    I bet that's pretty damn close. Any Idea what the point of sail is?

    I was, thanks. It’s obvious they know what they’re taking about, but I had no clew who they were.

    I wonder if the AM style foils have better straight line speed, but the ETNZ foils provide more lift, making it easier to get through the tacks and gybes we've seen AM struggle with. It's hard to say if the foils aren't keeping them up in the turns, or if they're still just learning how to tack/gybe these things.
