    And the Summer of F#ckups continues...

    Maybe it was poor leadership. There are any number of reasons why they may not be where they expected to be. Loading it all at the door of one man seems a bit 'simple'. If the leadership problems really were as obvious as claimed then why didn't someone else pick up the ball and run with it? Is it really likely that a bunch of motivated winners just stood by and watched screwups take place without voicing any concern? I think they just got out-designed and too much momentum was moving in the wrong direction at the point they tried to correct things. Even ETNZ despite everything they have apparently done right, still find themselves a month behind where they thought they would be. I also find this talk about which great (ex-) sailor should be leading which syndicate a little bizarre. Why would they have the skills to run a campaign like this? Sometimes experience isn't enough and you need real skill and thinking.

    ^ it's the access patch to the rudder stock adjustment. (too slowwwwww)

    They don't have to fix it do they - it's just there as an option should they like to match AR's declared weight?

    looks great Big Blue looks more 'chuckable' than OR and LR but that probably means it's slow (ETNZ B1 style).

    This is not another "lets pile on AR" comment: Does that wings control mechanism look like the 'draggiest' we've seen?

    My structural engineer would try and talk me out of that arrangement too so I'm wondering what the benefit is?

    I hear OR has plenty of different winglets lying around and they're not too precious about which ones they use...might be worth a bit of dumpster diving at the OR compound? Seriously it's ridiculous if it's taking that long to make a rudder. What happens if you hit a small log and damage a winglet - you're campaign is over because you haven't got a spare?! Sounds like some down on his luck loser bet it all on black. Hollywood couldn't write a script this bad.

    ^ and there are plenty of cheaper ways to get a commercial returns in the sailing sphere in France.
