    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Agreed. Effectively larger sail area?

    Very large leech gap here. https://www.instagram.com/p/CITfIsNAOFa/?igshid=1oqq56yvc4258

    Boats and foils comparison

    But they do. We see the tip out of the water much more than you're showing.

    Wow. What an anal prick!

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Makes sense. It's three months to the AC and INEOS appear to have revealed their last set. If three months is accurate, we should see others splashing their last set soon, and there would be no reason not to use them during the Christmas Cup.

    This is why I'm here.

    They probably put the flaps down.

    Sail-World's "Americas Cup Rialto"

    Also from that article: "But whether both sailing at race pace, is theirs to know and others to guess." It's called a "bob each way".

    Christmas Regatta

    Catch the bus/train to Britomart, get on a ferry to Devonport, and walk/bus (#807)/Uber to North Head. Bring a mask and some lunch. Approximately $30 return (excluding lunch). For fuck's sake; all the bitching and moaning in this thread about how inaccessible the America's Cup is going to be for New Zealanders. You live in the country/city where the cup is held. That country is one of the few countries in the world where you can move about without fear of catching a virus that's killed millions of people around the world, and we're fucking moaning about how busy the fucking race village is going to be! Get over yourself.

    It’ll be even more interesting if ETNZ emerge with a bulb and narrow wings.

    Sticking your boat, which sits in its own corner of the rule, back in the shed having sailed it two dozen times, after all of your competitors boats have been revealed can both be interpreted as basic design principles or a fairly significant rethink. I guess time will tell.

    Davenport nightmare.

    You’re right, it’s one of the very few windows where mods are possible, especially if you get knocked out of the Prada Cup. You’ve gotta say though, it hardly demonstrates confidence in your design package if you haven’t even lined up against anyone.
