    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    So in light winds the foils would be retracted, yes? If so overlapping headsails would rub on the foil? A crazy solution might be to have a rubber backed slot cut into the sail where the foil touches it, somewhat like a dagger board gasket. Then again what would I know

    I'm really looking forward to some video of the boat sailing/foiling, that might go some way to explaining how it will all work.

    18 footers 2018/2019

    FWIW, 12 foot skiffs don't use racks.

    Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2018

    I think Spindrift's time will arrive in the South Pacific, the forecasts are looking good in about four days time.

    Which trackers are people using, and which are considered better? Links please if possible.

    For me it’s Woxi for LH and Ichi Ban for the Tatts.

    If I remember rightly the VOR65s run about 6 degrees of tilt pin angle, one must think that it would reduce RM at speed.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Has Coville missed the Basse Terre mark?

    Route du Rhum 2018

    I've participated in long distance cycling events where I've had very little sleep, and I can tell you it's a bitch. You end up feeling like your drunk, and trying to make coherent decisions is almost impossible, to all those saying that Alex should have done this and should have done that, you just don't know what it is like to be in that situation. To me he is the winner of this race, despite what the official result is. Perhaps the organisers of this type of torture need to think long and hard about how they finish these races, and make the finishes as easy as possible to navigate.

    Maybe AT has gone to sleep and the auto pilot has malfunctioned?

    Really? This is 2018 and that's the tracker we get for the Cabbage Tree Island race? What a crock of shit it is.
