    No I am not retarded. I am also not an experienced ocean sailor so was just asking a question. Is it really nessecary to be so obnoxious?

    I'd like to add my thanks too. Been great to follow and thanks all for the translations and input. I think this will be one to talk about for a long time. I still can't quite believe how easy he made it look. Great boat, great team, wonderful person.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0NtdGLCvfmeV0cyVjNNazZuYlU/view Look for clauses 15 & 16 on Control Systems, Actuators are allowed for energy storage, apart from that, no one gets to see what's under the hood.. "15.5 Hydraulic valves, drive clutches, and electrical actuators shall be available to all Competitors on a reasonable commercial basis. Competitors may seek a confidential determination from the Measurement Committee as to the components complying with this Rule 15.5. The list of hydraulic valves, drive clutches and electrical actuators approved under this Rule 15.5 shall be made public 150 days prior to the first scheduled race of the America’s Cup Qualifiers and updated as Competitors seek further determinations after this date." Anyone know where this list is available?
