    makes perfect sense that they built a foiler and engineered a changeable bow that they are going to change everyday to test. FFS. If you are not drunk you need to find a mirror and have a good look at yourself.

    Airplanes do not have the water surface as an effective ceiling to deal with.

    why do foil tips go up? down would make more sense to maximize ride height and minimize drag? you want minimal strut in the water but do not want to pierce the surface or you ventilate... so why tips up?

    Square heads

    Haha a GP18 faster than today's foiling moth? Bullshit. Was not long ago that the JB was telling everyone that squareheads were just fashion and were wrong. The peak of his belief that sail area = bad = drag was designing rigs for an 18 that were about 20% smaller than everyone else. Guess what? Hopeless! Lots of his stuff is interesting and some of it is right. but woven into it is complete bullshit.

    J70, cheating and pros

    Now that is a great story. Not sure what le fuck it has to do with J70s measurement issues, but a great story nonetheless.

    Amazing that it is receiving no coverage - seems like there was 100+ people left on the island..... hard not to imagine the worst.

    Easily repairable, always looks bad having shredded clysar flapping but just replace some ribs and re-wrap.

    i think TNZ is the only one who can sail their boat accurately enough with enough fidelity in wing control to sail with windward heel upwind, windward bow just above the water, helping with leeway & righting moment.
