    AFAIK port and starboard accumulator pressure in bar.

    Holy crap. OR couldn't top up. IMO that's an inexcusable fail for their hydraulics designers. WTF is up with that Parker-Hannifin? FWIW: ETNZ mostly used inexpensive non-proportional German valves. See ya all in a couple years.

    Indeed. I didn't think a piss-take could be funnier than Downfall but that truly was and didn't have the sinister background. I also love hearing Spanish. My fluency is too rusty and elementary follow all the phrases but fortunately laughing translates well. Years of empathy training have successfully countered my autism thank's to my parole officer's support. Heading down to the Viaduct fireworks soon. Hope they're better than the AC34 launching party! I'll be the one at Headquarters wearing the ETNZ jacket.

    Matteo and Dalts - the backbone. The new talented sailors - the flesh. The shore crew - the blood, sweat and tears behind the win. Having beers at 16T.

    Well done - what an amazing effort. See you all soon.

    Razor might have a personal endorsement deal with Kaenon. I won't party until we cross the finish line winning the final race AND I have received assurance from ETNZ legal counsel that the coast is clear!

    The team was issued Prada sunnies and shoes many months ago. Prada are the only sunnies team members are allowed to wear when in uniform.

    I thought they were for tie breaking. First captain to the top wins.

    No harder than rugby commentators repeatedly explaining what scrum means to all the viewers who don't know what the tall white poles at the end of the field are for.

    Bobby on the team. Grant aka Louie not.

    The winning foils

    Nothing, really. Agree: the notion that the windward foil - whilst in the air - is providing righting moment isn't one of the better ideas mooted here. However, it would be interesting to do see some theoretical numbers, however small they might be.

    The irony is that DB is laughing all the way to the [Soft]bank now.

    Our mutual feeling has been confirmed by SBTJ's failure to make the finals. That buck stops squarely with DB who's never had greater control and responsibility for an AC campaign. The Peter Principle explains the unsuprising outcome.

    The winning foils

    FWIW, the NZ yacht often sails best with negative heel. No surprise there, really.

    If not properly handled, one of those rides might leave the rider seriously injured, possibly hospitalised. Probably best to wear protection.
