    What we like of Kanterbury locals is that they are not one eyed

    Boats and foils comparison

    We have 4 very different boats, which will be the best option ? ETNZ-sail-Live-Sail-Die6.webp

    Corona Virus

    This could explain a lot of thing: "People were immune to Covid-19 before it existed: Study “We have had indications for this from a long time that many people may not be prone to get this particular virus at all because they have partial native resistance likely due to prior coronavirus exposures,” he said. Answering if he thinks a significant amount of population is partly resistant to Covid-19, the preventive medicine specialist said, “My impression is that there has long been evidence that that’s true.” Citing the example of the Diamond Princess ship which saw a major Covid-19 outbreak, he suggested the presence of “pre-existing immunity” as only a small percentage of the passengers got infected."

    Holroyd describes the other boats, he won't criticize them but it does mean he thinks it's the best option. I never said they would use the windward tip to take off but during transitions if they lose their balance. I am wrong ? perhaps, we will see, part of the fun here. We can safely guess that cavitation et ventilation can go together around 50 kts, can you prove the contrary ? I mentioned very early here that Ineos deck aero was designed to be used with the sail. But who care who said it firts, some designed it before You have been claiming that it was important but you are still not able to understand that a flat hull can bring more RM, I found a interview from Martin Fisher confirming it: they consider that AM wants more RM while they want less wetted surface to get out of the water. Listen and learn, it's never too late https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/series-1-ep11a-americas-cup-design-edition-part-1/id1471762040?i=1000467568787 At the end, I think that the AM boat is much more advanced than what you say, their tests are also designed to fool the observers.

    Corona Virus

    It depends of the strategy you believe in, if you want to try to avoid the disease, not well, but if you know that those infected now won't be during at least the next 7 months and probably more, then tinfections without deaths is good news and develops herd immunity with minimum loss.

    Corona Virus

    OK, that is where I was willing to go, the article is the one making prediction for september, october but does not know. Do you know ? Another theory is that the more young people will be infected during summer the smaller the second wave will be. Again, that is a bet, one way or the other.

    Corona Virus

    I read your quote. Young people infected now did NOT increase the number of deaths with older people.

    The delay between the increase of infections and increase of deaths is very well known, it does not happen, at least now.

    What second wave regarding the deaths ? Next automn will be the key moment to know the tide. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1102288/coronavirus-deaths-development-europe/

    IMO, they test the max RM they can get in light wind to calculater take off speed in this configuration: maximum foil arms extensions of both arms and flying as low as possible. It's something that those with bustle can't do as low, so AM will crush the number to check what configuration gives the best results.

    Is Te Aihe done sailing?

    Is the pregnant dog delivering her bustle ?

    Perhaps, not even sure, some will have learnt from the crisis that there is not one science, or science against uneducated people as title some medias for those who don't know, there are different specialists with different opinions.

    The problem is that Trump spoke about it so it became a political standing for some, not a rational discussion.

    So, ETNZ had money transfered to Hungrary, couldn't sell Flipper, has difficulty with the host agreement. Can they still finance their campaign ?
