    More RM? I don’t know, probably less drag when foiling.

    isn't it just the retractable roof extension?

    When in doubt, blame JuanK, it a tactic that seems to work most of the time.

    Easily the best looking main of the teams. Hope that correlates to good performance...

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    article basically describes how it was built, nothing new was said. Note the cover on the hatch, possibly for aero.

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    I think it's simply because they're basically empty in the test.

    I don't actually expect much from Apivia and Arkea, while they will be in the fight for podium places for sure, they're in the same 'untested' situation that HB is in. Their skippers also don't boast the same credentials AT or JB.

    Weird looking boom...

    World Sailing in the Red. Where has all the money gone?

    Just put 18 foot skiffs on reaching courses in the Olympics and buy popcorn. 'nuff said. Who cares if they're not one design. Bikes in the olympics certainly aren't.

    World Sailing in the Red. Where has all the money gone?

    Usual bribes a-la-FIFA imo along with 'promoting the sport' in places like fucking china. Like seriously, every major foray into sailing in the big league with a 'China team' has almost always been 'Budget Team France with China written on in crayon'. World Sailing has always been slightly dodgy.

    Do you tie your jib sheets together when shorthanded?

    No, why would you. Over complicating things.

    My bet's on charal, HB too new to be a real contender for the win IMO, but he will give him a good run for his money in the tradewinds with the downwind only approach. Apivia and 11 hour racing will be ones to watch. I don't follow class 40 so whoever has the ugliest looking scow.
