    New sails

    Good to hear they are working for you. Can you expand on how a roachier main and smaller Genoa helps with weather helm? Unless they are falling over in 8 knots, this is all arseabouts unless your main is falling open so far the back half isn't working.

    New sails

    So everything else about the fleet was identical, other than your new sails? ... I'll be convinced when you loan the sails to the guy who came last and he wins the next race.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Pretty standard on most racing yachts - reference angles/lubber lines for quick on deck gauging of both tacking and gybing angles, and gain/loss on other boats.
  4. Strange one - If the COR wasn't already LR, this team would fit the MO perfectly...

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I think MAPFRE will get the DONG on stb at the next cross. Would be fun at night!

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Brunel was getting lifted and not laying the headland - have to gybe sometime!

    ^^ Is that seriously two keelbolts to hold that in?
  11. Jealous. I wonder where the VO70 development would have ended up if it hadn't been hobbled with the 65s... I'm thinking it would have either refined to the point of the current TP52s and eclipsed everything (including the 100s), or spiralled into such a corner that on some legs they would have won by days and on others been more back door than Comanche in the Derwent.
  12. Do you think the finish off Auckland will need to be 20 or 30 miles out to keep the seals safe? And I'm keeping my man boobs my secret. (Luv U Pil)

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I know these boats are pretty closely clumsy in these inshores and it was light, but what sort of fleet racks up above the committee boat layline with a minute to go? Brunel looked like theonly one positioned for a decent start without good ole barging or running into the committee boat!

    Australian Yachting Championship 2018

    Easiest way to communicate the time for response is to count out loud from the time of establishing overlap. If there is an incident, and you go to the room, it is very easy to ask witnesses what number you got up to!

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Scariest part of the NSW coast at night. Although the Newcastle/Port Stephens comes close...
