    Looking at social media this morning it appears the boat is fixed.

    Transat Jacque Vabre 2019

    Isn't that the old SMA? She was always a fast boat.
  4. If i remember correctly when wizzard was giacomo she lost her rig, it was replaced by a similar rig and a new longer sprit. Pretty sure thats the extent of her mods.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    Think it was the same last time round. ATR tends to keep to themselves and develop independently of the other competitors

    New imoca boats

    That is one very low boom. Was talked about but clearly trying to close up that gap.

    Fastnet 2019

    Think she had a new rig after losing the original. Possibly a sprit change but not sure how much these were actually changed from the original spec.

    From discussions about the old IACC boats rigging load alarms become targets. The rigs design probably needs assessing and any design changes fed into the class as the OD rig. If foils are here to stay most boats will have them, older designs can still grandfather their old rigs? Power generation is still primarily the diesel engines, though HB will have an electric motor this time I think so it will be interesting to see how they deal with generation.

    Schock 40 - shockingly easy and fun.

    Looks like Code-0 conditions to me.

    Yeah, the other issue with battery is there isn't the added effect of warmth from the engine. Going to need to pack a few extra layers to keep warm!

    How does that hollow in the fore deck drain? Fine it will eventually heel and therefore flow out but in the southern ocean that area will be pretty much full of water. Cool boat though, Its a development of hugo boss boat wise but the foils are more of the b'pop school of thought with a lot of lift gained from the tip area (after the curve). At least thats what it looks like to me.

    Interesting, trying to see if they are like Alex's design of foils or the other boats. Anyone have anymore information?

    Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland race

    looks like Sam Good child is off to fix something and i can see 5 others either in port or going in the wrong direction. Didn't think the conditions were that bad!
