    Team France

    They wouldn't do that. They'd sail north and east along the coast (stopping along the way) and then hop the channel. Or they'd ship it to Caen and sail from there.

    That is pretty clever. Transit time probably doesn't count as training time.

    Artemis?

    True. He is the only one who uses post processing for artistic purposes. That's why I like his stuff.

    Artemis clearly has the best photographer.

    AIRBUS + ORTUSA does not equal a "perpetual challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries". It's disgusting. Where's Boeing? And what must BAR and the French think of this?

    We'll probably never seen AR race ETNZ, which is too bad. But we might! Which would be very cool.

    LR requested the black flag, not AR. LR and AR will not line up at the start. This will be just like the last time LR "raced" AR, except that AR will be somewhere on the bay (not on the race course).

    The article definitely implies that AR will race on Saturday. As I said, this seems highly unlikely.

    No, they say they have two sets of rudders, one that complies with the old rules Nd one which complies with the new ones. The clincher must be the platform max weight change. While I'm sure the extra 100 kg is important for them, I think what he's saying is that they can either use the original small elevators that fit in the box rule, but would not comply with the new safety min size elevator or they could use the new large symmetric elevators that stick outside of Bmax. What they can't do is to have an elevator that's large but fits in the box. They apparently have the same problem as OR that their rudder is too far back, so if they have a large assym elevator, then the inside tip would break the 1m plane from stern. However, while OR have time to rebuild their boats until the AC, AR don't have time and would be eliminated. I believe you have it correct.
