    Teams?

    Even if we get no more challengers, having 3 super teams + defender is enough IMO, if they all build 2 ac75's thats 8 new boats. Now that's a lotta' boat.

    Team NYYC

    Even ETNZ had 2 test boats, bought one, modified another, or the same one, hmmm.

    You sure a cattle prod is powerful enough?

    AT heading straight for the mainland now, please luff a bit to lower our heart rates.

    AT tacked, heading away from Les Saintes. Such a nail biting finish.

    Looks to just be a slow gybe.

    I doubt AT is going to look back, barring technical issues, the race is his for the taking now, we saw how fast his boat is in the trade winds in the last VG....

    Maybe it's time they invested in hatchets in the cockpit for Banque roll, or we could save them the trouble and donate some.

    Hope this works out for HB, nail biting.

    New imoca boats

    This is Alex Thomson we're talking about. He'll find a way. Then he'll break it.

    New imoca boats

    Remember that Charal is the 1st boat of its generation, meaning future HB and any other new builds will be slightly improved compared to Charal. However, Alex has stated that his next boat will be 100% green adding about 100 kilos according to him. I hope he has a trick or two up his sleeve, it would be a fitting end to finally have AT win the bloody race.

    AC75 vs F50 and Maxis

    BP V and Groupama 3, have both reached 47 knots iirc.... non foiling boats. Amazing.

    Ultime / G-Class Development

    If there the weather conditions are great, I think we could see Spindrift shave more than just a day or two this winter. I mean Idec, an older boat than Spindrift shaved off what? 5 days. Imagine what an improved Spindrift can do. That boat is a fucking beast.
