    Will Any Team Ever Fly A Code Zero?

    We will see in March - personally I expect all the teams to have a contingency for flying them in the extreme light expected conditions but aren't doing it yet.

    It is also ironic because the same folks who have an issue apparently with skippers who choose to produce content for their sponsors also are the same folks who say they'd love it if programs or VG required 24/7 data being offloaded by the boats. And the only two skippers who committed to that aren't the French ones who do the "thank you for sponsor see you in a few months" - so which is it? Want more access or transparency to feed the holiday blues? Or more secrecy focused on winning above all else?

    Herrmann generates a lot of good will and attention for his program, he won't win the VG, but I think he's given the event more than he's taken. There are some folks who basically put in minimal effort on communications once they secure the funding and leave France? They might win, leave the imoca scene and start a technical boatyard/prep consultancy - but they give back very little to the sponsors and VG organizers. It is what it is and the skippers should always be allowed to be who they are - but I think the public notices.

    He’s definitely one of the architects who’ll get new business from this cycle.

    lol good luck finding anyone in America organized sailing at any level who didn’t have a sheltered upbringing.

    The last thing anyone needs is another foiling boat going thru the water hitting people and debris and now you have two broken boats and casualties and bloood in the water.

    Doubt it’ll happen. TH is the figurehead of the syndicate that is most associated with rubbing shoulders with American inherited wealth capitalists who pretend they earned every penny. Those folks don’t humble themselves to step off the boat - it’ll undermine the narrative they’re superior ppl.

    It has the added bonus of maintaining decorum so no interjects or talks over each other.

    Don’t think they were sandbagging at all. Otherwise the team wouldn’t have been working so hard over the past weeks. They’ve shown they can sail in good breeze. Question remains March light wind.

    Question is what happens when the wind speed dips like everyone expects as the season goes on.

    This is really bad... she ran it hard aground at the start of the TJV and the entire structure had to be rebuilt. Now it sounds like the hydraulic ram first broke because it was fighting against undesigned cycling because of the keel pin was moving relative to the ram. Then the false keel that supposed to keel the head from moving broke...
  12. good effective government policies focused by scientific epidemiology works - there's no need to go hunting for alternative explanations for why locations without the virus, vs places being spread around by ignorant undisciplined people are places where more people are dying.

    I enjoy the French VG coverage of crossing Cape Horn so much more than the VOR. The VOR coverage like to paint Cape Horn & Patagonia region as some uninhabited wild desolate paradise while visiting special gov schools for indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego... never stopping for a moment to inquire what happened to the indigenous population to begin with and how Patagonia became “desolate”
