    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Yeah this was me intrigued by the lack of videos of B2 Luna Rossa sailing. The only one in circulation is their launch and subsequent test sail were there was no real footage of them with B2. All the other challengers are plastered all over Youtube with B2 footage, but not the Italians. Not sure if they're not sailing or something else? From RG's Sail world article....America's Cup Rialto: October 30 - The Week in Review "Luna Rossa had their first and only sail to date on Saturday afternoon."

    That nosedive was on the 4th of October - so about a week before the capsize. You can see all of his YouTube videos here... Justin Mitchell

    Still no bulbs on either of those foils?
  7. I think the stern support has remained intact, but the bow support has been modified to fit that thingy in.
  8. Yeah, not my best work...but they have a new thingy hanging off the bottom? Picture from Sailingsardinia.

    That's a nice pic of the old Wilson Cement Works here in Warkworth. Funny you should show it in the NYYC thread because, it actually has a fair bit of relevance to the USA. By that I mean during WW2, Warkworth and it's surrounding areas was a big R&R area for American GI's in the Pacific. One thing they liked to do in their past time was practise their use of explosives - hence why these old Cement Works buildings are in the state they are now! They were also kind enough when they left, to just push into the old quarry swimming hole their unwanted army vehicles. My Dad always tells a story of swimming there as a kid and being able to dive down deep and touch the cab of and old Army truck. It's a great family swimming spot and during Summer you struggle to find space. Ok, now carry on... P.S. I loved what they did in the Shit Towns of New Zealand piece on Warkworth. If we can't laugh at ourselves then who can we laugh at?

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    I can see that - but isn't that the nature of the beast? Let's agree to disagree and I'll be more civil from on...

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    And as far as not posting. You're right there. I spend most of my time in here just reading and taking in all the interesting information and theories. My knowledge and experience on most things here is limited, so therefore as I don't have anything of use to add, I don't post. I unfortunately find a lot of what you write as very negative, and that's a shame because you seem to know a fair amount about sailing.

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    I stated a fact (you know what they are?) and was replying to Clew. What you're failing to realise, is that all your posts are just your own opinion (and you're entitled to that), but unfortunately you try and pass them off as fact. I take exception to what I don't agree with and then downvote accordingly when there are no facts involved (99% of your posts)
