    New video from Seb on Facebook. Some pretty substantial damage to the board box and a bunch of water in the boat.

    I'm guessing (hoping) that's just the rendering. That would make the enclosed cockpit pointless. Leaving it open like that would create drag and weird wet vortexes in there.
  6. Gonna be some big fleet compression up front today.

    I doubt we'll know anything about the hull form or foils until she's out of the shed. Is there any information sharing out of the Gitana or Sodebo sheds back to the designers? Its such a small group of boats, I can't help but wonder if that information is shared to help push the (tiny) class. Atleast safety wise etc (foil controls and whatnot)

    Cockpit is definitely a culmination of both Gitana and Sodebo. Arms have that same foil treatment Gitana went to in mods. Main is almost flush with the deck (they did that on IX).

    AIS message is mmsi/nav status (this is where the SART declaration is)/sog/lat/long/cog/true heading/time stamp and a bunch of other shit adding up to 168 characters

    Jeremie went back directly to Les Sables and had the boat fixed right quick and got back on the course before that window closed. That is allowed. What you are proposing is not.

    So diving into AIS-SART, anyone know which transceivers and plotters can understand it? Digital Yacht makes a receiver that understands it that wires in n2k.

    ask someone who was in a car crash or in a high stress incident for a timeline. it'll be wrong almost 100% of the time. but the boat is gone, and he is fine, we can move along back to racing.
