    The code 0 รถ generate a lot of drag.

    That is why you need a combination with solar power.

    Sun and wind powered cars

    I read this https://group.vattenfall.com/who-we-are/sponsorship/vattenfall-solar-team and it got me thinking. If we can do 50 knots on the water with wind, it should not be too hard to go faster than that on land, i.e. given that we can sail in the right direction we should be able to keep up with traffic flow easily with a wind powered car. I guess the main problem is the limits in true wind directions.

    The arms are one-design I think,

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Exactly, I think it is 20% of the weight and AM+LR have all the weight in the bulb, so they can basically change the rest as much as they want.

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    I would find it even more interesting to see them sail against each others.

    Agree, but it was far better in the last two ACs then before. Technology helped. Now you actually know who is leading a race in the middle of a leg.

    How many challengers will there be?

    I've been trying to watch broadcasts of AC since the 70s and from a pure spectator viewing point AC34 was far better than anything else, followed by AC33. Sailing in Valencia was sort of viewable but most races were over in 1 minute and then the rest was just waiting for the finish line and the animated graphics was more exciting than the TV pictures actually. So for AC35 to be exuding they need to spend money on good TV production and hope the races are sort of even.

    Sailing season in Sweden is may to September. Sure you can stay in the shed, but I'm quite sure most ETNZ sailor actually hit the water in something during the shed time.

    AC36 CLASS RULE

    I am completely convinced that you could have changed the sailors from one boat to another and (given sufficient training) the same boat would still have won. I.e. it was a design contest. I can not remember any Americas Cup match that was not won by the faster boat. Possible Shamrock IV - but that was before my time.
