    Best sail combination for J100

    Nice. Just ordered a 13.8’ symmetrical carbon pole and a 86 sq meter kite. Bigger jib is next.

    They are coming out of a gybe...

    Team NZ

    You saw them get up and foil?

    Interchangeable foil tips likely. You would think the transition wouldn’t be so crude.

    Watched two races last night while walking around my house attempting to get my 6 week old to sleep!

    You’d figure after 15 years of posting on this site I would know how to rotate the image...

    Allegedly American Magic are out on Pensacola Bay ripping around on the Mule. Pretty cool to have a cup campaign training on the Gulf Coast probably for the first time ever.

    Teams?

    I find it highly interesting that Taylor Canfield was seen sailing onboard the F50 with the US SailGP team and was not on any of the announced teams lineups. He is connected to the US21 Challenge and Don Wilson’s CMRC. I assume they have submitted a conditional challenge to have the Deed waived for a challenge from Chicago.

    Wanted - Viper 640

    Jason, do you mind me asking to which Yacht Club down here your boat will be sailing out of? Obviously don't need to name names. Just wondering if it will be on the southshore or northshore of Lake Pontchartrain.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    True. But the competition is still moving in the direction of one design. Like it or not. The AC75 is still a good bit OD supplied parts is it not? Just as the AC50, with the hope of reducing costs and getting more teams involved. I know people like to see visual differences in the boats but the faster these things go and the more computers and algorithms get involved the design competition will be in non visually noticeable elements. The typical F1 race-day fan can't tell you the differences between the Ferrari and Mercedes cars besides the engines are different manufacturers. And F1 has not been great to watch the past 5 years since Lewis Hamilton and Merc are a cut above everyone else in the field. I am just now getting into Formula E, which uses a supplied chassis and battery (formerly supplied McLaren electrical power unit). Now they are using the a new supplied chassis and battery and engine manufacturers are now permitted to develop and use their own electrical motor. The sport needs to be a competition of who the best sailors are. Whether the F50 is the best platform to find out remains to be seen.
