    Prada Cup

    Such hostility. Its not the only explination but it is plausible and good sportsmanship to some extent. If something breaks on another boat and you have a spare I would consider it good sportsmanship to sell them your spare so they can race. I think its a bit strange if it is true and the defender is helping the challenger but a deal that is beneficial to both teams is fine.

    I have heard rumours that ETNZ sold Inneos their system that integrates with the FCS. Source is people who could in theory have that knowledge but I somehow doubt ETNZ would do this. Unless inneos has agreed to help ETNZ practice after the Prada Cup.

    AC TV Coverage

    I wonder if someone could setup a twitch stream from TVNZ. Would probably be the easiest and most scalable

    Looks like the new owners are fixing some deck soft spots and various hull damage.

    High Anxiety is sitting in Evans Bay Wellington out on the hard. The Keel is off. Looks like they are doing a lot of work on it. Name has been peeled off and their are a lot of fiberglass patches on the hull. So someone is doing a decent amount of work on her. I will get a pic on my ride to work Monday.

    Team NYYC

    They were all over the place. The distances they we covering was incredible. They were down by Motuihe first. Then North of Rangitoto. We saw then again in the afternoon pop around Rakino and spent another 2 or so hours training North of Waihiki. Before basting back to the city. The speed is absolutely insane. The things I found amazing was how deep they could sail downwind and in control they were the whole time. Very smooth operation. We are out again today so hopefully will see one of them out again but I don't think the weather is going to play ball

    uh, a jib traveller ?

    I have seen this on a few cruising yachts. All used the sheet up the mast method as it is lower friction and cheap and easy to setup.
  11. I hadn't planned to record the events this time around. I will look into how to record off the free to air tv in NZ. For the last AC I used an IPTV service to watch. No promises though. I won't be recording the AC races in Auckland. Planning to be out on the water.

    Apparently it is a "Fast yacth need deep draft"

    Coast Guard Training HUGE Waves

    The other photo shows the operators outside and exposed. If that think rolls and takes 20 odd seconds to come back up they could easily drown.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    The flags were stolen from properties of ETNZ staff and fans who were staying in Bremuda so unsportsman like and illegal.
