    When you compare the light air sailing back into base from earlier this week.. this isnt far off.

    Is Te Aihe done sailing?

    you've done well to make my ignore list. maybe understanding the class before embarking on a stupid discussion would save precious time (which you seem to have a lot of)

    Of course they will be faster through tacks and turns.. they are heavier and have more momentum. From seeing the video posted from 13/7, appears the AC75 will pretty much destroy an AC50 by some margin.

    Does seem to tack through only 90 or slightly less degrees.

    Look at the angle and speed of the RS and Laser.. so ETNZ is heading 150 down and 3-4 times windspeed? More?
