    What ever happened to supermaxi WildThing?

    Well considering that the mast is from another 100 footer... alfa romeo-now-blackjack... I think your eye must be off. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/wharington-unlikely-to-remast-etihad-stadium-in-time-says-crichton-20091214-ksbj.html https://www.sail-world.com/USA/Etihad-Stadium-Supermaxi-mast-is-in-–-now-for-the-tuning/-64734?source=google http://archive.cyca.com.au/news/racing/2009/12/etihad-stadium-mast-is-up/ That said, it is very far forward by modern standards.

    Surprised there’s no discussion here about the damage to the downwind sails on scallywag

    Agreed PIL the decision by Witty to not have any kind of headsail up for the start cost them dearly in terms of momentum - Blackjack and WOXI had it to leeward of them and from there out the first leg was decided. Naval Group obviously a case of showing up for your sponsor rather than showing up to race. Cast of thousands and all asses and elbows from the group. Lotta onboard footage of them dumping their A2 in the piss after setting it without the tack connected. Going upwind with the job eased out to luffing. Bad show. Sail inventory looking a bit tired as well.
