  1. I guess they will have it mostly right. I do worry about some team making some critical mistake, like in SF, with predictably horrible results. But I guess that is part of the game when you push the envelope. I will watch with interest.

    Just knowing what I know from seeing your other boats and what you have written on the forums and what others have written on the forums, that boat looks like it is perfect for you, Kim

    This is a pretty unique perspective these days!

    F-22 Update

    Oh, I didn't mean it was old. I was thinking it was nice to see that they were publishing news! They do seem to be putting out boats. Perhaps not as fast as promised or wanted, like most of us on deadlines!

    F-22 Update

    I've been wondering this as well. Their web site has new news as of June 8th. http://www.f-boat.com/recentnews.html

    everybody doin' it?

    This boat has a blade rudder and a fin keel, but a bit more rocker than the most modern boats and the fin is much lower aspect ratio than most modern race boats, so not as quick, but fairly efficient, and a bit more forgiving against stalling. And above the waterline the hull has traditional shape with overhangs. I don't know what the real wind speed is, what their polars are, whether this works well, or whether they are pinching a little for some tactical reason.

    Is this the Figaro III?

    Those 70s are big, but also decades old. It's really hard to know what conditions would favor which boats. I guess the F3 will have trouble keeping up for the duration, but I really don't know. Seems like the Riptide 41 is a more apt comparison to the F3.

    Only a few feet above the boom, the leech is not above centerline. I am guessing that the foot isn't optimally trimmed, but the overall sail is close.

    The fact that there's evidence that it wasn't an international conspiracy is the most compelling evidence that it was!

    I think if we are to find this thing, we need to use a fleet of something like this: https://www.boeing.com/defense/autonomous-systems/echo-voyager/index.page?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialad&utm_campaign=echovoyager&utm_content=video

    How about: If enough of you buy our sails, we'll be too busy building your sales to come whup your asses!
  14. I keep seeing this on my new post filter. Team NZ and Team NYYC are headed toward an epic battle!
  15. I will be surprised if it is not quite different from the original simulated videos.
