    ^nice! Thanks @rh3000

    Totally. Discussing this with mates earlier and when you compare the chat between Giles and Ben to the zero chat on AM it is pretty telling. LR in a better place too.

    I think you’ll find we’re generally pessimistic until we win! I don’t count fitba as it’s shit.

    Prada Cup

    There’s a lot of grumbling about those races. Have you guys never had similar? It’s sailing... it happens and it’s how you deal with it that counts. I actually enjoyed watching it as it was tense. Have some great memories of races in the Solent of drifters (generally because we smashed it of course!).

    ^ they said in commentary they were running a different foil. Didn’t think they were allowed to change given all previous discussions.

    Far too soon to make a call. If they have another bad day tomorrow though...

    Memo to self... don’t post when pissed. Sorry, got a bit carried away but we have put up with quite a lot of negativity thus far (admittedly justified at the time!).

    Unless I have misunderstood it’s Mozzy himself who has done this vid. Agree, very insightful!

    Suddenly this thread has become enjoyable to read again! Still not finished watching race 2 (bloody work getting in the way) but there was a great shot looking behind as INEOS was sailing higher than LR. To me, today was all about having a competitive boat vs the opposition and then just better race tactics/management by Ben and Giles. I especially enjoyed Giles' "well done chaps" at the end of race 1

    Agreed! It’s why he received such a warm welcome every time he came out to bat in the subsequent Ashes series

    Brexit WTF, WTF

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-supporters-farage-cash-francois-b1781100.html Veteran Tory Sir Bill Cash claimed Thurday’s milestone was a “victory for democracy and sovereignty” that can only be compared in peacetime with the evolution of modern democracy after the end of the Stuart dynasty. “It is a momentous moment which, by any historic standards, can only be compared in peacetime to what happened in the late 1680s and ‘90s,” he said. “Which was the removal of the Stuarts, but followed by the new parliamentary constitutional arrangements which were enacted through the Act of Succession with the Hanoverians going on the throne. So.... Brexit is similar to when William of Orange was invited to come over from mainland Europe to rule under the Glorious Revolution and then eventually was succeeded by the Hanoverians who were in fact *checks notes* German. Right.

    I thought they were only for a day? Could be wrong but am sure someone mentioned that (which must mean it’s the gospel truth of course!).
