    Quick and dirty, sort of works.

    Is there a rule allowing Ineos to ‘wax’ their ski/skeg... it’s even got a rocker.

    For the same wingspan you have a longer foil. So more lift, also means you can have a thinner, more efficient wing with a higher aspect ratio. The problem is whether the lower induced drag offsets the increased parasitic drag of having more wing... Also seems beneficial when heeling. I could be wrong.

    It’s their first sail. ETNZ had Exposed plywood on their AC50 during their first tests in Auckland.

    Well they must have found a way around the rule. What else is it going to be in that position.

    get a VPN and get the BBC or TVNZ coverage. I feel sorry for all the aussies, having heard a couple complain about foxtel.

    Is it me or the mast is very far back. Bow looks a bit like the Te Kahu test boat.

    If he's got problems this late, he's most likely going to have problems in the race itself. Look at HB in 2008.

    Is it too late to ask for more ?
