    IF A AND IF B THEN C regrettably it is all speculation, but that does seem to fit some of the facts. One might speculate that Ben optimised for expected cup conditions (light air) and is trying to do just enough to get through the qualifiers (medium to heavy air). But it's all just speculation. I don't think they have any massive tricks up their sleeves, they are just trying to grind out the result. If anyone can grind out a result from a sub optimal package, I would put my money on Ben.

    Just to be clear, the UK is the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and sometimes Fiji. :-D http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-14919688

    The cup protocol states: 28.2. Semi-Finals stage: Only the top four (4) placed Challengers in the America’s Cup Qualifiers shall qualify to compete in the America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs. The 'next weakest' team in the qualifiers would have to win 3 more races that BAR to get a place in the Playoffs. Those ACWS two points could prove very important to BAR and might be the deciding factor between an early exit and racing in the Playoffs. AM I reading this correctly?

    From Martin Whitmarsh in the article: "When the team got to Bermuda, the boat was two knots slower than it needed to be. After the first upgrade was put in place, we improved by 1.5 knots. There will be another upgrade and it will add another 1.5 knots to the speed of the boat. We believe well be competitive when the racing starts, he said.
