    RAF 100 Years Old

    Had a flyover of the Red Arrows in formation with a Spitfire in close trail today around 1000 in deepest darkest Wilts, wonder where they were off to.

    George does drive, but he's getting on so not sure how long his stints are.

    Weed or Hash ?

    Submitted without comment, taken from the Random Photo thread, just seemed timely.

    With a Ferrari 250 GTO selling yesterday for a record £52 Million ($70 Million) and a Aston DB4 Zagato worth up to £15 Million ($20.25 Million) that is an eye wateringly expensive prang...obviously back then, they were just race cars racing...beautiful race cars, but race cars none the less. The annual Goodwood Revival is about as close as you get to this these days in the UK, multi million pound cars being raced hard on a classic track. For your viewing pleasure, please excuse the thread drift.

    Generally the live TV is the last 2-3 days, tracking was spotty for this event, hindered by the fact the race course was an hour's motor away from the regatta site with high hills and numerous islands in between. It also seemed to play havoc with Jenny's on the water commentary. Crew bar was cracking though and the scenery was pretty spectacular.

    Team NYYC

    Quantum are the only Factory team in the event, all others are a mix of private funding and some sponsorship, then again you could argue that it's DeVos money and Doug as well as Dalton have, and do helm the boat at certain events, so not a true All Pro team, this is beside the point. Quantum Sails sponsors their boat and supplies to Onda, Platoon and last year Gladiator. Through this, Q provide tuning tips and on the water line ups between those clients and a flow of information and design evolution. Platoon were crowned World Champions, beating Q in Scarlino last year, Gladiator were tied for 1st, but lost out to Azzurra in the last event in Mahon on countback. So Q isn't unbeatable either by their clients, or as witnessed by their bow number, other teams. North supply the rest of the fleet and also provide a similar support structure with their sail designers being on site during events, going between the teams and offering speed debriefs. Most teams have a dedicated coach on the water taking photos of boats and set ups to provide a day by day debrief internally. North Sails as well as Southern Spars (read North Group) are Technical Partners to the Super Series, as well as Quantum Sails.
