    Exactly, and apart from Ellen MacArrthur you have to go back a fair while to find any other sailor that impinged on the consciousness of joe public .

    Frankly I couldn't give a shit. I wouldn't see the need to critcise themn if they were Kiwi, I don't feel the need to defend them because they are British. I just thought it worth pointing out that there are trolls from all sides.

    You have no worries - certain of your compatriots have been doing that endless (and tedioiusly) already. Of course if they were to do with NZ, those very same people would be protesting about how they were wonderful and no-one should dare criticise them

    You have a point A4E- if you start supporting Oracle, we will all have a whip round and make it very worth your while

    TBH, he has had a number of good starts. It just tended to go downhill after that

    Your problem Jack is that your 2nd gear is not an uptip 2nd gear. Its just like any other run of the mill gear. Not distinctive enough

    You could make similar comments about allk the teams though. Apart possibly from the non-sailing dedictaed cyclists in the NZ team?

    There are ways, I did say that was a simplistic explanation, but yes it could impose a restriction. Without knowing all of the details of their solution I cannot say what. I would say that their lateral sections (at least some) do seem to have some curve. But it is possible that is the reason ETNZ and others decided not to go that way As usual, we are all guessing

    I didn't mean based on tank testing. I menat that they had sailed with them in BDA and ensured they can sail fast etc, but then used slower ones to sandbag during the races. Without doing something like that its hard to sandbag

    You obviously fail to understand the concept of prototyping in engineering Well it is interesting to know how many do this. I assumed that everyone would, sems fairly obvous to me, but GTF said that BAR were unique in this respect. If they are, could that mean that BAR have tested their fast tips sailing and know they are good, then put on sandbagging tips for the practice races so they can suddenly become faster for the real races? Well a man can hope can't he? (But if they suddenly get fast, you heard it here first)
