    This simulation shows that even some people acting responsibly is considerably better than none as far as health system capacity. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/world/corona-simulator/?itid=hp_hp-banner-low_virus-simulator520pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory-ans

    Strikes me that Ineos is moving from one nearly peak covid region back home to simply catch another peak in a second out of control country, maximizing paralysis of the team. Might get more done staying in Sardinia.

    Surely grounds for moving on to better people? Or are they without alternative personnel?

    Some of the forestay loads probably go that far forward?

    This might be the reason some teams are trying boomless - hard to fit all of that hardware into the two skins and keep things fair in all trim conditions.

    Here's a thought: they wanted lower wind limits to match available test conditions in Cagliari to be able to have physically validated loads at the upper racing range. Explains going out in that heinous swell too - very valuable data available.

    This must be the clip for this circumstance?

    Except you can't trim your downtube to the apparent wind angle (edit: del -speed) on a bike, but you do trim a main. Kamms in cycling also have to do with frame stiffness and UCI boxes and aspect ratio limits. It's an interesting idea but i think the odds are it's unrelated.

    Beyond the music, a few interesting things show up Streamlines of flow between the high sides/crew and the mainsail A cross section of the mainsail/wing Some shaping at the transom that doesn't appear on the boat as-built, the triangular faces that direct air inward and up
