    Sorry I cannot find it. It was a video interview.

    FB confirmed the software issues of last race to ita press and that also impacted their ability to trim boat properly. He said also at the start they only had a timer

    Prada Cup

    Yes. They lost completely the racing software and some info used for trimming (I assume ride height, etc). Start was done just using the timer

    I kinda agree. But people from Luna rossa (Bruni as well, who is not cocky at all) continue to say that AM has big issues in the light, and goes well only in the breeze. Not sure if we are missing some performance comparison in the <10knots range and we are just too much focusing in the 10-18 range. We'll see soon I guess.

    I have to say it very much looks like a 49er Gybe, where you mess with the exit angle, getting it too hot Peeeete. you shouldn't do that.

    I think the issue with that is that runners attachment point is outside ofnthe double skin and I understand that you have to hoist the main with runners on. So (maybe) it's not that easy

    Good analysis. I just add that probably LR came off the foils in a not too marginal gybe, where they were also decently fast at the entry, because they losr the rudder mid-gybe. It is pretty clear from the onboard audio

    I agree. Lot's of info, especially in the moth home builders group.

    They look a bit more bow-down than in the acws. Also Max said there would some small visible differences from acws and some others for the prada cup in January. I cannot spot anything obvious

    Pietro Sibello's hands. I guess the gamepad is used for mainsail trimming. Bruni is steering, directly in front of Pietro. It would be interesting to see what's Jimmy doing on the other side. probably working on the foils.

    Pietro SIbello, the mainsail trimmer, moves to windward after most manouvres.
