    Christmas Regatta

    Looking forward to that event, Why is American magic looking bow down in aerodynamics? A downward foiler deck. Well, trimming isnt't easy on that level. It is a trimming nightmare!

    This forum gives thought to al kind of strange ideas Jack. A place where the there is room for all kind of ideas. Did you like the pub "Oude Jan"? It's for store keepers and all other inhabitants. It's a bit posh, not intellectual. But ok They respect each other.

    Stupid enough to be fucked?? Here we go again. One of the sail mates that I invited to this sailing forum turms out to be the biggest trolls. Sorry Jos, "let's Trump them" doesn't appear to be the winning strategy...

    A roll bar is behind the drivers head, Grosjean head would have been pulverised at 125 Km/hr.

    Mean time did anyone followed this: 10 years ago this crash was not survived. It is about the Halo. The strange t shaped bar above the drivers head. I like safety and environmental engineering. Requires a lot experience.

    Not counting the wind. Not saving a fellow sailor in a race proved to be a tragedy in Fastnet and Hobart. Jean le Cam and Boris Hermann simply do not have a choice. A race is not worth one human life.

    Remarkable good seamanship from Jean Le Cam. It even might cost him his race. Charal steaming along to catch up with the fleet. https://twitter.com/i/status/1333391579126525953

    I do not believe a glued together boat. Even silly he went on allthough understandable. It's a captivating Vendee Globe, more than ever before. That's why Jean le Cam might win the race. Less swiss army knives appendages.

    Rock star sailor, Charlie Dalin Collaboration in design with Francois Gabart who is ultime skipper right now. Chapeau, Well done, This Vendee so far has been exciting. With all twist and turns, Jeremy Bijou, Alex Thomson, Thomas Ruyant all stepped back on structural problems. Jean Le Cam still in top three with a non foiler. It is more a design contest then ever before.

    Yep well analysed, To find a solution to this slamming is more then difficult. Wave, boat, boat takes of and slamm.... Making boats indestructible, foiling and shorter... But who wants to be a skipper on that?

    And they start to believe in it them selves. I worked with good americans, they are not all bad, In fact Larry was the nicest and best paying boss I ever had.

    Is that sophisticated? No sorry, I have a nomal sexlife with a normal woman. Why the hassle, this is the NZ thread. Not american presidential elections they were vry very strange, and the rest of the world looked in disgust. Falsifcations, threadning, and other Alternative facts But go ahead, make my day. Too riduclious for words....

    Thanks you very much I am an advanced engineer for complex facilities, and I still do. I even worked for the cup for Larry. rake engineering, the idea wasn't very difficult, the implementation was. Some ideas might make it but it's just too bizarre. Do not invent jobs for people that might be humiliating. Carring people for ballast like a coffin is unethical. Maybe they tried the idea.... At least try to see the fun of crazy ideas.

    Fables of the cup, Did you know the port and starboard comparments are being connected by three tunnels? Tim Tom and Tubby, rollerskated supported to get the other side? Really it's true. The hula was the best one, they even believed it themselves.
