    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Bouwe said in the video ETA Monday night or Tuesday morning.

    I'm not trying to visualize that

    Worth watching! Some hilarious bits with the hair transplant and trying to shit at a boat doing 30 knots at a 35 degree heel. Pascal looks unhappy when he says: "no one on AIS"..

    Indeed, using ping pong balls to explain pressure gradient.

    Thanks SX. If anyone could drop the link to that video, much appreciated.

    Indeed, boats are less than 3 nm apart, no use to put the washing machine to work..

    Well, that is not very sportsmanlike by Ian. I would like to know on what info he based that claim and seems to be pissing on Akzo's parade. I have the TBRU 24/05/18 00 UTC and 19 UTC positions plotted with the currents modeled at 24/05/18 00 UTC and 25/05/18 00 UTC. I know the timing is off, but my point is that the global NE course followed by AKZO and TBRU and the projected meandering GS (green stuff) look not very much aligned. There could have been parts where the current was with them, but also against them. Probably both. We simply don't know if the current played a major role or not at all, only RC and the boats themselves have the data to assess that.

    Like that theory. If you get just 5% more energy by sleeping better in the bunk that fits you best, that would count during such times the crew is pushed to the max every shift for 24+ hours.

    Awesome drone footage by Sam Greenfield. Kyle is driving the bus at 20+ knots with one hand AND grabs the drone with his other.

    Sry no, too busy with other stuff. I checked the VOR- and Windity tracker though, both have AKZO first and Brunel second in Cardiff.

    I typed “need” and not “deserved” as in nice for marketing purposes, brand exposure, building a name etc etc. and was not suggesting that Tienpont should get all the credits. Indeed a bloody good job by the crew of AKZO. And of TBRU for that matter.

    Nice story - and good that you are not dependant on others for getting around!

    My money is on the last. Tienpont needs a speed record more than Bouwe imho. Brunel is not letting AKZO go away, DTL is now 0.4 nm with a lateral seperation of 16 nm.

    Nice one - your bad eye had not lessened your wit. Can you still drive and so?
