    What I heard on their comms was Dean trying to defer to Terry, but then not getting an answer and making the call at the last minute. If Terry is going to be the one who decides, he has to be available to make those decisions at all times and instantaneously. He can't have his head in the boat grinding.

    They can miss the rest of the RRs and still show up for the semis.

    Looks like maybe she's starting to rise.

    All that's missing is the string quartet playing "Nearer My God To Thee".

    Tipping her over won't do anything with the whole hull submerged, damage will still be underwater.

    I would skip the rest of the rounds robin if I were them. Get your boat in order, rearrange your after guard and go practice and hope you can be ready for the semis.

    For sure. Buoyancy when they righted vs a few minutes later definitely indicates they're taking on water. I'm guessing something where the foil arm joins the hull. That foil was fully out of the water and slammed down flat.

    Terry can't be skipper, tactician and grinder. It's just not working. Dean is begging him to make decisions and he's got his head down pumping handles. Deano and Goody were obviously at odds about what to do at that mark rounding and nobody was in charge. No leadership is worse than bad leadership.

    Well, on the bright side, the boat seemed very fast in these conditions. But wow they have fundamental crew role issues and they need to make a change immediately. Hope the boat can be back out on the water quickly so they can practice whatever new arrangement they decide on.

    Great race. Thought Luna Rossa had a chance to hold Ineos outside the committee boat at the start and didn't take it, for some reason.

    I don't have a problem with abandoning the race, it was becoming a farce. I don't have a problem if the teams agreed specifically to certain course orientation standards for racing. Just don't tell me that you abandoned racing today because it was unfair and that yesterday was somehow more fair. Cause that's a load of shit.

    NY trusts are interpreted first, last and every step in between "by the four corners". Trying to establish a fiduciary duty to do anything beyond accepting challenges and defending the cup would be a very hard row to hoe.

    Exactly. Animation Research wouldn't have any IP of their own if it all belonged to the trustee and got transferred with every cup. Is it a bit of a jerk move to make them pay for it? Yeah, but it seems like they're clearly in the right from a legal perspective.

    People also need to get ahold of themselves about precedents for previous transfers of IP. Previous transfers consisted almost entirely of recordings of the racing. Broadcast technology is a whole other deal and I wouldn't assume that there has been any/much of that transferred.

    Jimmy has always been calm and professional on the boat. Winding up Kiwis in the press conference has nothing to do with how he goes about his business on the boat.
