    Maybe, but then why say at all times?

    All I know, my biggest gripe with all these trackers is the wind overlays aren't on by default. I know they are not accurate, but I like to see what is forecasted. It annoys me that I have to toggle them on every single time I refresh. It is a sailing race after all, wind and boats are always needed.

    I am not sure why he finds this funny. To me it is shear stupidity to even attempt a cardboard cover. Who really said, this is a brilliant idea? Is this the same person he is entrusting his safety in to get around the world? What other corners have they cut?

    I am surprise they don't have a type of NACA Duct which would allow airflow into the cabin which could be closed for water intrusion if needed.

    It is hard not to be a fan of AT for me. He has been doing this for years, and appealed to me with English being his natural language. He has come up with two crazy designs these last two times around and that is certainly a draw as well. It is not that I am not a fan of the others as I think each have their amazing stories to tell, it is just one I can understand the easiest as a shitty American who only knows 1 language and some broken spanish after required courses. As a sailor, who lives and breathes being on the water, I am certainly watching everyone closely as possible as I will never be able to even do anything close to this.

    I just wish BOSS's hub had windspeed.

    They only bought them to do the crewed version of the ocean race, right?

    Is this the only boat that has a chair? I always thought the best way to ride these foilers would be to have a 5 point racing harness in a carbon race seat.

    Just imaging the scene in Apollo 13 where Tom Hanks ripped them off out of anger.

    I have been trying to work the corner so I can get enough money for this instead of crack.

    Chesapeake racing recovery

    Still a pandemic. Still a regatta where participants need to stay in hotels. No parties or social events. Not worth travelling to this year.

    Savannah/Charleston/Pensacola Sailing Advice

    Pensacola is the syphilis capital of America. Add my ex living in Gulf Breeze and FUCK THAT, even if the sailing and Gulf is nice.
