    They also have not existed since returning to our sunny shores... Have you seen anything other than the old fleet of Scorpion and the Catalyst in the recent content? Boat 1 stripped and shipped Boat 2 in the shed

    Afraid not, as previously mentioned - you're not worth my time. Just giving you enough rope. As for your wildly assumptive sexism, you, my dear, can't see the wood for the trees! I don't recall stating that the backer of this team had run out of funds, simply raised the notion that no additional would be allocated. As for your tedious tendency to claim fiction as fact, if you took a breath every now and then you might learn something. Check your "sources", you have not seen half of what you claim.

    Alright, i'm not sure when your going to dismount from that shetland but we're not all serial forumites, the schools are back as you know. What i've indicated here, i know to be true. I haven't divulged more than can be publicly ascertained by the educated eye and/or ear. I've simply ratified it where reasonable. As the saying goes, where there's smoke... If what i can share offends you, don't read it but otherwise don't be so quick to dismiss, we should just be so readily demanding you provide evidence to the contrary... As for source, i'd say living with him for near on 20 years makes him somewhat reliable.

    Do those rose tinted glasses come with a prescription? I appreciate you have an affiliation(s) with one or more of the sailing team but this is far from a happy camp. There is sufficient evidence if one knows where to look but that is beside the point.

    All of the above? Zero hasn't been stuck in the sky. Couldn't flake one down as pocket luff... Plenty of recycled footage... Suggests testing new things in the initial phases (levels) of confidence. Covering themselves with only one mast in the UK? Development items? Increased load somewhere? New rig tune? Higher mainsheet load? Pushing first boat beyond it's initial design case? Mainsail looks like a new main, luff detailing looks different.

    I'm not saying cover up, im saying the facts are there. Word is they sailed 2 maybe 3 times, once with the skeg before a significant issue arose at which point conveniently the covid exodus and the nose falling off LR took the spot light off... There is supporting statements and timeline between the lines of these 12 pages you just need to filter the BS. That and i'm sure you can coax some insight from your ties to one of the sailing team you've nodded at previously. All i'm saying is don't believe the hype, there may have been a lot of development in the 1's and 0's but beyond that we haven't actually SEEN a great deal from these guys (yet?) Rooting for the home team but telling it like it is.

    Same wings, same struts. Possibly slightly different fairings around the junction. Paint is irrelevant as the fairings probably require constant work to maintain given the amount of flex added to the complexities in the design would suggest some means of disassembly for maintenance and then refinishing. No change to topsides. Rumours of some kind of significant repair recently. Looks like new sensors on the transom, tow testing to prove new code or human interface? Would perhaps suggest a connection to the big wipeout last year and the lack of sailing since - tying the new sensors to the repair rumour all nicely covered up by covid and the various issues LR have had...? Conspiracy theory? I only saw one mast being unloaded from Cagliari and Old Portsmouth hasn't received any oversized convoys, or i'd have had to move my car!

    Plenty of rumour and conjecture, but from first hand conversations, can confirm that most if not all of the shore department heads have unanimously left the team for pretty similar reasons... this is the same group that stuck it out through Bermuda, the interim and the transition into Ineos so one can only imagine the issue may lie with management changes since then? Rumour has it that the count is close to 20 individuals in as little as 2 months. If this is true then this is more often than not telling of failing management, conditions, compensation or all of the above. The tell will be whom they find to fill this void on such short notice. We may see further evidence of the mercenary stigma associated with this outfit.

    Seems like a slightly unnecessarily scathing comment. Pretty certain those involved wouldn't have been in the last cycle with only a "few years" in the game. To draw a comparison, it's like me accusing you of not having a f£&*ing clue about whatever it is you've held a profession in to this day. To look for a positive, seems like a genuinely productive way to actually give something back to the sport where other teams wouldn't even bother considering it. Kudos for trying either way.

    All so woefully inaccurate. I've read this thread on and off for some time along with so many others but rarely "chime" in. It's far too evident the personal prejudices several "contributors" here try to establish as non fictional inside information with respect to an organisation that they have had zero first hand exposure to or genuine knowledge to draw from. Have you paused to consider for a second that the serious "stake holders' may indeed have the inside track on trickle flow information from the new defenders. Coupled with the same disbelief of concept and uninformed opinions towards the new class rule that was seen at this point last cycle... Word on the street is that those who've begun running simulations and modelling show that the concept is capable of what it says on the tin and that BAR are indeed in a financially more positive position than other syndicates at this point in the cycle. One can only hope that with their infrastructure, base, resource network and basic staffing already in place for a second cycle. Many of the initial distractions of AC35 will not have a contributing factor to the end result. It's all too easy (read easier) to bang on and on with your own manufactured negative propaganda than it is to better educate oneself on the facts that are readily available in the public domain should one simply look... And commence trolling...
