    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    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?

    They used the engine to pick him up! Is that allowed?

    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.

    Just found this video from 2012. Seems to be basically the start of his americas cup sailing. Man that's a long way to climb in 5 years!

    Not just legs. It's the legs being included in the design consideration from the initial phases allowing the kiwis to explore more design space. It's the whole boat the team and the way they sail it.

    ETNZ altered course to below that of USA when they were at 90des to the wind. USA were never aiming below the kiwi boat when at the same angle. The kiwis had to head up to avoid.

    Looked to me like they could maintain speed equal to the kiwis for the first three legs. After that and the penalty they were out of power and all their manoeuvres started suffering for it. I reckon if they are equal at start they will stay in touch but then start suffering again after a few legs.

    Freddie Carr's comment about the wing trim on ETNZ. He seemed to have quite a semi on for it.
