  1. I guess it depends on the layline. Will the boats be able to fetch the finish from the breakwater or have to jibe or soak? If they have to jibe or soak, then the right side is even more favored.
  2. That finish is downwind. And not perpendicular to the wind. So the right side of the finish line is favored. Probably the races won't be close, so that doesn't particularly matter, but why?
  3. About 3 months out. Does anyone know if we will be able to stream it or if the full race videos will be available after?

    The original yacht was in a shed that collapsed under heavy snow in 1942, and was scrapped. I think there are several replicas. One was in SF when the cup was here.

    I will forever be baffled by the instinct of many to argue against something because it is common sense. My ex-wife used to do that to me all the time.

    what is it?

    There have been many insulting versions of Juan Kouyoumdjian's name around here. I admire him. He is pretty edgy, which is bound to cause some negative reaction. Did we ever get an answer to what that star-looking boat is?

    They go deeper to leeward, though, and when they are deeper, they are closer to the center, so I guess the mass in them increases the stability, but the lift being closer in would reduce stability. I would guess the overall effect would be less stability.

    Not sure if I think deeper foils are more stable.. But I think probably flaps give you more control and, so, unless you fuck up, you will be more stable more of the time.

    Finally watched this. So awesome. Computer graphics from 2005 made it even better!
  10. Looks like a photo of a 1600.

    Not possible to have 4x less. 1x less is 0. Please don't do that.

    If you have enough purchase, it's amazing what you can do with a piece of string!

    Isn't it really tacking? You are going faster than the wind, so apparent wind is in front of you. This is on my bucket list.
