    52 Super Series Thread

    For a race series that is decidedly NOT sailgp, I have to say the 52SS is pretty awesome. The limited coverage races are pretty well spelled out at the beginning of the year, it is what it is. When they do cover the races live they do a fantastic job...Jenny T is great and they do a pretty decent job of filling the air with analysis ala cycling. IIRC they usually do a bunch of videos each year walking through some of the technical stuff they did since the last season. And it is a niche sport....I am happy with whatever we get. I don't understand the complaining about getting a little something, even if it is not on par with the polished F1, Grand Tour stuff. I had the opportunity to be on a boat that shared the pier with the 52s in Palma last year (humblebrag). The 52 owners / crews were quite accessible and gladly chatted for a while. Definitely had a pit row type of feel. They were pretty accommodating and let me take a bunch of pics for my kids. Would love to see them come back to the US for a few events. I guess the GL52 circuit has to get off their duff and take up the slack here!

    Whoever grabbed it has a weapon. The boat was well sorted and the owner was a great sailor who always had a solid group on board.

    Dammit I wish I could link a Facebook video because the team just posted a pretty ripping sequence of a foiling tack.

    Puts it quite nice for sailing in general for the majority of us for the last decade...

    Yessir...footage of them towing out the 75 along with a teaser by Greenie to “watch this space”. My guess, cut over to the drone in between races. They are on the last run now.

    NYYC Invitational IC37

    I watched at HC with the group from RCYC. I think you can give the video quality a pass for yesterday given the messy conditions. Tucker and Greenie were fine! It might be a matter of taste but I liked their back and forth banter during the race. When Kenny joins the broadcast team it will get even better. What I think people forget is the level of action is not exactly like the NHL where they do not have to fill time...given the relative slow pace of a sailboat race they did great. Want to see boring filler? Tune in to the “Ironman Live” broadcast of the IM World Champs at Kona on any given year...they have their own versions of Greenie and Tucker and they turn themselves inside out to fill nine hours of broadcast time of people exercising. Either way, I am tremendously thankful to be able to watch the IC broadcast as we don’t get enough sailing. I didn’t see that many issues with the tracker that would have made too much of a difference. I could see a delay by that was it. Pretty much the same as they super series from my perspective. Disclaimer: home team guy. Love the fact that the club presents these events and opportunities.
