    Because ferries stopped docking in Cagliari dolphins returned to the harbour, watch the Prada guys checking them out:

    I think in a race with such a high profile it would be justified to have jury boats out on the water with the race leaders during the in-port section of the race. They could make jury decisions right on the spot instead of several days later and could have prevented this self induced mess by WO11 imho.

    Next to LE's Zenji apparently, it's probably a coincidence but still...
  4. Unless they are designing a scaled down version of the old AC90s I doubt it will be much different from a wide TP52/VOR70-ish yacht.
  5. So they decided to use VOR70s for the AC? With the required specs I don't see how it will look much different from this:
  6. Unless it will be a large moth-ish mono I don't see how that would work, anything that won't be able to do foiling tacks and/or gybes will be a failure IMHO. Foiling assisted mono's would also be dangerous with that protruding foil. Reading this quote I get the impression that LR never really considered multihulls to be "proper" sail boats:

    But does it come with a helipad? Must be nice to have a helicopter as a dingy:

    I'm not familiar with US law but in some EU countries if a "company" only has one client and employee it is sometimes considered a regular employment contract. This is to prevent exactly what OR is doing, namely firing someone without cause and not offering compensation etc.

    Bermuda is very expensive and arguably justifies the salary increase asked for by Spooner, nevertheless firing someone just for asking is quite unreasonable. Maybe OR wants to send a message to the rest of the team: ask for extra compensation and get fired.

    Bermuda?

    Perfect for EU, not so perfect for USA. And Kiwistan will lose a lot of its productivity again. While 7pm seems fine, I didnt have any problems with the SF time either though (Usually 9PM-ish). KL makes it sound like Bermuda is a wrong choice for some reason, seems like a sailing and TV paradise to me. They would cry so hard, they would choke!

    Watching someone in the boat park unpack his brand new Nacra20 L foils a minute ago made me think of this thread.

    The official FB page now said that Grant Simmer is OTUSA'S CEO, does that mean RC is running ACEA?

    There are a lot more pics here: http://bootinbeeld.nl/index.php?page=galerij/sites/2014/rot14/rot14_zat.php and here: http://sander.photoshelter.com/gallery/Round-Texel/G0000qajppyvN3xQ/ Not sure if the Phantom was leading though, not that it matters. Personally got 32nd place overall, not too bad.
