    I listened to times and times again, 35 km/h, AM could't go faster because of their large stable foils.

    Oracle AC72 B1 was considered faster than B2.

    When sailing on big boats they could finish like the last Volvo.

    45, which makes either 45 knots or 39 kts, on their boat. Funny how some kiwi fans can't understand their own language, either when they listen or when they read.

    Make the drone fly over them and they will kill themselves, by night and casualties will even be higher as they use mortars.

    Some AC50 teams explained that they set their boat for upwind which brings the bow down attitude downwind where they need less AoA at faster speed. TNZ had also a bow down attitude upwind, one explanation could be that they felt confortable flying upwind in this configuration allowing a better AoA, thus better stability when the boat went slower during tacks for exemple. How could they keep the same setting downwind ? don't know, sail trimming perhaps. I have not seen this bow down attitude with F50, probably because they have a different rule allowing better control with the rudder rake. I have not seen this bow down attitude with Ineos and AM either which would be logical as they have main foil flaps, they are sometimes bow down but it doesn't seem that they are loocking for it but lacking some power when it happens.

    Creating more RM by creating a low pressure does not seem to be efficient and would probably increase drag. However IF ground effect works it could help the work of the foils and create a "third leg", make the boat more stable without hitting the water.

    You can explain us why RM is more important than drag on these boat.
