    Mate I was right into the SailGP, even flew to Sydney and chartered a boat to watch it, but it was bitterly disappointing but as I said previously I hope with more time for the sailors on the water and better commentary it improves because it needs to. I love any type of sailing where it's the best against the best, it could be in a bath tub with a stick and a pillow case tied to it and I'd be interested but just stating that the youtube clip was more exciting and entertaining than the Sydney SailGP regatta.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned previously but heard David Coulthard on the radio this morning because the F1 is on in Melbourne this weekend. He owns a film production company called Whisper Films and it's responsible for the SailGP production. https://www.whisperfilms.co.uk/clients Might have a quiet word to him if I see him round and give him some feedback.

    Agreed, but you could edit the entire SailGP regatta down to 1 minute and it would still be boring as bat shit.

    I gotta say that racing was far more exciting and enjoyable to watch than the cats be it AC50 or F50. I'm a fan of the cats but was quite young back in 2000 and hadn't really watched this footage. That was awesome !!!

    SailGP - Sydney Inaugural Regatta

    I was really looking forward to this but that was fucking boring as bat shit. That commentator bloke made my ears bleed. AUS and JPN are miles ahead of the rest, in another league. Needed more breeze too which I think added to the lack lustre event. I will however reserve my judgement on this until the others get some more training and we get an event with more breeze, but not looking all that awesome at this stage.

    SailGP - Sydney - Best free spot to watch

    As will I and will have a large very well stocked esky (NZ'ers read Chilly Bin) to accompany me for the arvo.
  7. That's a totally fucked result......................by not actually getting a result.
  8. I wonder if WOXI and BJ shared a beer in Customs House last night ???
  9. AIS would be a lot more helpful than navs from 4-5 miles away at night time though don't you think ?
  10. Pretty sure there's a thing called night time that may make seeing them all the entire time a little difficult.

    Don't write off BJ's light weather edge from one Harbour race over an hour or so which was a pure soldiers course with no passing lanes and they also had to deal with a shitload of power boat wash and chop all race which WOXI didn't. Whoever won that start was always going to win that race. Credit to WOXI for doing it though.

    Where are the 5 x 100's staying ? Are they all at Woolwich or spread out all over the joint ? I've got a Sydney visit coming up in the next week or so and wouldn't mind having a look if they were all together ??
