    Team NYYC

    The front page is suggesting the footage was CGI... Personally I don't think they would go through the trouble but who knows with the amount of money thrown around in these cup cylces. I will say that the mast looks a hell of a lot taller than some of the original photos taken when she splashed.

    I don't think there will be much given away by shots of the test boat hull shapes and foils, including the mast, at this stage. Quantum is clearly holding photos of the prototype dual skin main close to the chest. Surprised we were given a glimpse of the tack.

    Second US Team

    Canfield was sailing on the first F50 the other day with Rome Kirby. He is probably going to be on one of the remaining Asian teams yet to be announced if I had to guess.

    Schock 40 - shockingly easy and fun.

    Is it me or does the rig look like its about to go along with that kite? Yikes

    Best sail combination for J100

    M, do you mind PM-ing me some pictures of your deck mounted set up? We currently are operating on the bow-tacked OD set up. Been toying with sprit/pole ideas the over the summer.

    Best sail combination for J100

    Gotta have a bigger jib than the 100% for light air PHRF. As far as the kite goes, if you have a sprit...use it. Otherwise I would go with a traditional kite but the aspect ratio starts to get whacky with a non-penalty J-length pole.

    Wanted - Viper 640

    Thanks. I've seen the spread of boats for sale on there... Just setting feelers out for anyone who hasn't listed on there who may want to part ways with their boat....

    Wanted - Viper 640

    Anyone know of a decent, still class legal, Viper 640 that they (or someone else) would be willing to part ways with near the southeast US?

    Hastily put together website...I am sure they will figure out the order and all of the typos soon enough.

    Ugh. Don't even get me started on McLaren, they have really been shit the past few years and have wasted Alonso's talent.

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    I'm curious to know what setup is heavier. The AC72 wing or the AC75 twin skin system - mast included. I imagine the AC72 wing was pretty damn heavy once you add up all of the hydraulic system weight. This option, in theory, should be lighter.
  14. Somebody took these pictures and posted to facebook this morning. Anyone want to venture what hull they took to frankenengineer? 11 meter?

    J/100 tuning #'s

    Who has done the sprit upgrade and can provide an approximate cost installed? I know the kit itself is around 4k from Forte Spars.
