    FFS, of course there are measurers crawling over both boats. Both teams will want their changes locked in today and boats re-measured and new certificate issued so they can just practice crew work tomorrow.

    Ah, so you can call people cunts but you are not allowed to look at them.

    ^ Yes, that's it. Been tracking it since it took off from Auckland this morning. Not sure how long they have in LA or whether they just change flight crew, refuel and take off for Bermuda.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I thought rule changes had to be unanimous for about a year now? 13.3. Voting: Where a vote is required under this Protocol, except as otherwiseprovided pursuant to this Protocol (including pursuant to Article 16.4-bis(), each Competitor shall be entitled to one (1) vote and, unless otherwise specified in this Protocol, decisions shall be made by a simple majority ofthose entitled to vote. Terry is correct. Changes to AC Class Rules need unanimous consent and have done since June 2015.I thought ETNZ and Prada opposed the change to AC50's but were overruled by the majority?Or was that a protocol change and not a rule change It was an AC Class rule change but was prior to June 11 2015 after which all changes had to be unanimous.

    ^ The PM reporting time was 1830 for satphone report and 1930 for SSB reporting so CQS had sailed close to 160nm in 8 or 9 hours. I'm not sure what that the monohull record is but the multihull record is just over 27 hrs in 2012 by the Team Vodafone Orma 60. On another note the watch captains have been announced for the Round White Island and Sydney Hobart - Chris Dickson, Rodney Keenan and Chris Main.

    Yes but you should be able to see the fluoro orange tiplet on the windward side

    Looks like there are no DSS foils at all.

    CQS arrived in Auckland this morning. How to make a 100ft yacht look tiny. Berth it in front of Larry Page's Senses.

    Dalts has been exported to the UK. Should feel right at home with Dogwash.

    ^ A bit of wishful thinking on you part there Nav. GA was just being very cagey in his answers. He has said nothing more than what Kevin Shoebridge has said. You should just stick to what you are good at, posting other peoples pictures.

    I love how sclarke can get you all to bark at the same time. He/she has you all well trained.

    The winning foils

    Of course what you have drawn would be illegal under the AC50 class rules. No part of the daggerboard can exceed maximum beam below MWP and the maximum rotation of the daggerboard in the cant axis is 15 degrees. That is basically 7.5 degrees either side of the maximum draft point of the daggerboard.
