    Prada Cup

    Who was the dufus interviewing Dan Bernasconi on TVNZ? Where do they dig them up from!

    Maybe. There could still be an advantage to sandbagging. You don't want to win the round robin series if you want to maximise race practice.

    They want to see how easy it is to pass the others.

    The Spanish stole them from Peru. So the Spanish are to blame for the Irish potato famine.

    A pity that today wasn't scheduled as a reserve day. Appears to be a better breeze in Auckland this afternoon.

    FCS troubles - seems karma IS a bitch

    Sure but the guys designing this stuff for these boats didn't come down in the last shower. Well I hope not.

    The wind limits are fine. The issue is what to do when the wind drops away after the start. That's the case in any kind of yacht racing. No one wants to see a displacement race with these boats.

    Good time to test the good stuff with spies banned.

    All cases detected perhaps. It was reported in the local press today that a child arriving in South Africa, who travelled from New Zealand has tested positive. Also until the last couple of days, the NZ MoH have only been testing people with symptoms, who have travelled from certain countries and their traceable contacts. The testing has only been ramped up in the last day or so.

    I wandered down there at lunchtime. Looked like boat 1 was all wrapped up in the shed. Didn't see the truck. No sign of the Hawk but the other bay door was closed. Did they go out? The conditions are great right now.
