  1. The first incarnation had leg powered winches, now you know where the Kiwis got the idéa My old man is in that picture btw, boat is now in Kiel Germany.
  2. Is there anything on the actual regatta format and race schedule? Fleet racing? Round robins? Maybe the NoR is public somewhere?

    Wow, looks cool and expensive, perks of being a big budget team!

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Unless I’m mistaken the AC50’s were a handful to handle for some AC35 teams initially, not that worried.

    Team NYYC

    Well, if their upwind TWA is something like 25-30 degrees (v5 numbers if I recall correctly) and 155-160 downwind the VMG will be quite good (can anyone confirm these were the numbers for the IACC?)

    And at 50 knots? Because that’s how fast this thing will be right?

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Apparently affects yours. It is.

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Irrelevant, try again. Platform is also irrelevant, we’re only talking rig performance here since both rig types works on both platforms. Then again, a platform designed for a wing doesn’t need to withstand any leech, sheet or stay tension...

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    The only important tech metric is efficiency, thus outright performance, and in that regard the wing is king, end of discussion.

    AC75 vs F50 and Maxis

    Now that Team UK annexed Team UK they can provide an answer, why not once boat 2 has been launched? Nice marketing ploy similar to the F1 vs Supercar vs Roadcar comparison done by McLaren and at least one more F1 team, RB/AM?

    Why is it important that anything AC related is self sustaining? The AC has ALWAYS been at the mercy of billionaires, it’s in the events DNA! If you want something politically correct, self sustaining, environmentally friendly then detach yourself from civilization and take residence next to a rock or something.
