    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Each of the teams in BDA were capable of inverting the top camber arm, FWIW. What differed were the various compromises made in relation to how this was achieved.

    Possibly just an illusion brought about due to platform rotation. Would be interesting to see what sort of yaw angles the teams are running on the foils.

    First priority would probably be to get the bow into the breeze. After that, a rig such as this one might be sufficient to do a 'water start' with a little forward movement. Otherwise, righting lines would be attached to the beam and drag her back up onto her feet. In fact, I just went back and took a quick look at the ETNZ capsize from last year and confirmed that a righting line is attached to a point just forward of the foils, on the deck.

    Care to explain? You had stated that NSW and QLD had over 3000 active cases combined. The total number of active cases in Australia is sitting around 1340 - 149 of those from NSW and 30 from QLD. There have been three separate links to stats given above, and they all agree on the same numbers, including an official government source.

    Not so much for foilers...

    I think you'll find that it's actually closer to 200. Please don't make up numbers. https://infogram.com/active-cases-table-1hdw2jrnx1vx6l0

    Sorry, can you remind me what the course was for the first race held in 1851? Granted, it wasn't known as the 'America's Cup' at that point, but it was still held in challenge for the very same piece of silverware.

    I see plenty of AC sailors in the USA and GBR sailgp lineups...

    I'm not particularly au fait with the world of internet forums, but do people actually get paid to 'bag the fuck out of others' online? What does an organisation or brand achieve by doing so? Any half-decent marketeer would surely focus on the channels that offer the widest reach and greatest value -- news media and other forms of journalism come to mind. Whilst the front page of SailingAnarchy might be of some appeal, I'd hardly expect that an organisation that is associated with a Fortune 500 company would take any interest in the opinions of those found deep in the bowels of this forum, mine included.

    AWS. Was referring to the discussion above about AWS, rather than boat speed.

    I'm not sure about the 75s, but the AUS SGP guys said they hit 54kt AWS accelerating on the reach to M1 in one of the races at Cowes.
