    Ouch! I still can’t understand how making it so hard to see online is going to grow the audience.

    american tragic, is really the future

    I seem to recall it had something to do with the boards in measured condition. Something about the depth of the boards when the hull was floating when measured?

    Foil arm testing successful

    Yes the greatest bending moment will be at the hull pivot, so any extra material here would have a negative effect on RM if they reduce ballast

    Press release or it didn't happen. Sorry, Mfluders rules!

    Clarkey, trust me on this. Someone inside Core told me they were working on these boats. His response wasn't prompted, I just asked what they were working on at the moment and he dropped that clanger. I was as surprised as anyone. Having mentioned this to a few others I got the impression that quite a few people already knew about this,hence the reason I started this thread. Do I think it will survive? That's a whole other story

    This was from a guy who is building the foils. He also said that the BAR boat had just turned up. A mate rang me the next day and he had beard about it too. Definitely not a rumour.

    I agree, but the difference with this is that the boats exist, some of which are at core, and they are spending large modifying them and building boards. This doesn't mean it's commercially viable, just that Larry has some loose change lying around...

    Core are building one design foils and modding the boats. Anyone heard anything else?

    Oracle Team USA

    Not sure what they are up to but they definitely did fly a bunch of guys up there. Stranger though was a story I heard from a reliable source who told me that Oracle were cheating with regards to some construction rules. I figured they were talking about the last cup with the 45's but they said that it was just recent, and in regards to the foils. Made me wonder if maybe Oracle was behind the revisions to the foil rules - would be ironic no?

    Artemis?

    In the days leading up to the jury decision you were posting smack like an immature little boy but when the decision was announced you suddenly became very busy with "meetings" As a sore loser you are the last person to be calling out others

    Kiwi triumphalism, big on tempting fate. Wait until you've actually won, guys.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubris Unfortunately there is a lot of it around at the moment. Be happy & confident by all means, but this is waaaaaaaaaaaay past that. If we lose this thing, their dream world will certainly come crashing down on them. oops, should have followed the pitch pole comment with (yet). Not sure where you get the idea that I think we have won already. Just replying to a cheeky post.

    ...boats that don't pitch pole, legal rudders
