    Prada Cup

    I took "dog off leash" to mean aggressive, potentially risky maneuvers (i.e. boat-to-boat combat). Maybe @XPRO can clarify?

    Seems to me being 2nd or 3rd in RR might be preferable, to get more races in. 1st has to sit out a good while before the final.

    Speed maybe okay, but vmg? Not so much imo. "Sideways fast" was my impression when they were actually foiling.

    So are they doing extra wind stuff with the wind instrument on the end of the bowsprit? Last race, when ineos and tr were next to each other, iirc true wind from ineos was about 10 kts and tr was reporting about 8 kits. To me thats easily explained by masthead vs deck level wind speed differences. Are you saying the kiwis are up to some tricky tricks with instruments?

    Team out practicing or what?

    Watching that just sent me straight back to bad memories of trying desperately to escape a wind hole while others sailed around us. I couldn't look away but I probably have an ulcer now. ...Also feeling so badly for those guys on frackers. Not fun to watch.

    Wind instrument placement differs across the boats. LR & TR have them on the end of the bowsprit, whereas AM and INEOS have them on a wand at the masthead. Should AM copy LR & TR?

    FWIW, I'd propose additional rule: After at least 1 boat has completed the first leg, if both boats are off foils for 5 minutes, end the race right there. Whoever is ahead wins (I know that's problematic, but let the judges decide...if they can't decide, then revert to the relative placement at previous mark. Otherwise (like nobody completes leg 1) abandon.

    The great thing is that AM has some real world feedback now and can go to work! If their tacking is still suspect in a month, it's because they chose a different tradeoff. No excuses now. A technology gap will be harder to bridge.

    They also need to sort out on board audio. The Ken Read post-race YT interview with LR was silly, barely able to communicate. And the presser needs to clean up how they handle online questions...only getting them patched in halfway thru their question...then needing to repeat. More work to do than ineos.
