    AC75 vs F50 and Maxis

    What @Forourselves keeps missing is that SGP and partners like Rolex SHOW photos like this as part of publicity and advertising on social media. Thrills. Chills. Crashes. Adrenaline! [Fact font] Unless AC75s start capsizing, hard to see how they can compete for eyeballs. [Parody font]

    I'm sure sponsors will rush to sign multiyear contracts, given the founders are scaling back due to unquestionable popularity of the league. No need for longer LE subsidy. #winning

    Today is really slow. Glad it's just not extra tracking beacons for me.

    Apparently SGP still has a ways to go before the sailors prefer it to the AC or Olympics. Well, plenty of time left in that 5 year financial underwriting! PS and didn't Marie R say she wanted to do the next Ocean Race?

    Hmmm. SGP GB is needing new people due to Olympics commitments. But maybe Jim does not intend to pay $5m to give them some substitutes. Maybe he thinks LE/RC should pay HIM, lol.

    Remember when SGP was "headquartered in London and San Francisco"? Well, it was. Now it is "London and New York" and there are a couple of jobs for operations managers based in NY and working globally. If you are looking, Google SailGP jobs or look on Glassdoor. Hey, it's a living for now. Applications close 12/8.

    TE spent show time regurgitating one, or so one hears.

    But did Southern Spars make them for those 3 teams? Are their masts having issues? Different from the alleged mast/ball interface discussed yesterday or cause? Well, buy American, I guess.

    So, we have to go to Maui

    If you go to Honolua, if there aren't surfers ( because it is calming dur ro swell direction) there is snorkeling off to the right. Watch for slippery and urchin covered entry, though.

    Yes! You are developing your judgement. Good call. You ARE inside the jetty and breakwater, right?

    Too bad the advice never to put anything in unencrypted email thst you would not put on a postcard (2.1.1) got lost somewhere along the way.
