    Christmas Regatta

    Please no, I for one am looking forward to seeing sir Ben have his knightly ass handed to him in every race upcoming.

    Christmas Regatta

    I thought it would suck but it is fun. Today less so but interesting. It feels like the early days of something though with the foils making a racket, on board audio going in and out and Ken R saying stupid shit over the top the whole time. The graphics overlay on the screen is tremendously distracting. I would bet we see a lot more tacking duels, much better prestart tactics and more light air in the final.

    He’d hit a shipping container, and anyway, they are already consistently coming in second in each race.

    Then why are they leaving?? Seriously though, it’s kind of a bummer. I have not been to Fiji and probably never will go, but in my imagination it doesn’t have a KFC. I was never so disappointed as when I went to the Great Wall of China and in the place where the bus brought me below the wall there was a Subway and a Dominos pizza.

    Fiji sucks. No McDonald’s.

    The story was they left so Brian could do the family thing. But I have wondered if there was more of a rift. They don’t really reference each other and Delos with all its followers and media reach has done less than zero to cross promote Brady’s efforts. Maybe it was money. I don’t follow Delos anymore. Brady was the fun part. I have no interest in baby stuff, watching Brian fix the refrigerator, or what’s her name saying for the umpteenth time that everything is “soooooo amaaaaaazing.” She used to be kind of hot. Babies. Oh well. Bored with most sailing videos now (other than Erik A) but would love to find channels as good as the ones Delos did in Mauritius, La Reunion etc way back when. If Brady can do that, I’m in.

    Vendee Globe 2020

    Clearly, and hindsight is also 2020, but with all the designers’ and sailors’ commentary before the race saying “hell if I know” the risk level was high - faster boats, new tech, late changes, less time at the helm. In my business that was a recipe for bugs, a steep defect curve, and n-1 being the right decision.

    They certainly work and they will continue to win. But the 2019/2020 generation of boats has had a very poor showing here, not solely because of the foil component but due to the whole package, including skippers’ experience with these boats and the amount of data about what they would do. Having minimal data about how these would perform in southern sea states is a big risk. Apivia is positioned to win it, but if it doesn’t you would have to say the newest generation failed completely and much more stick time before the VG is a missing link.

    Why are you picking a fight over every post? Have you contributed anything other than saying everyone else is stupid and pointing out that posts that are one man’s opinion or obviously jokes are not technically accurate? Are you having a particularly bad day? Maybe you need to go get laid or something.
