    Some Old Design Clippings

    Great story of Improbable's design evolution. And who could forget Gary's, beautiful Chico 30 design?

    Hmmmm. Loving your optimism, T. I'm thinking maybe it's Italy's time to shine this time around. There's only so much looking and acting like winners, before it becomes a self-fulfilling philosophy. If you add Challengers to that list, it may paint a slightly supporting picture, no? Perhaps the opposite to, Ground Effect - The Stratospheric Effect. ;-)

    Ha. Back to the old Rule-cheating centreboarders, eh? Who'd have thunk? ;-)

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Might as well remove the foreground too, for a bit more clarity. ;-)

    Women with the America's Cup

    So. Not only are there physical (strength and aptitude) and mental barriers (as relates to ambition and resilience) there are societal and environmental ones too. No wonder it's tough at the top, regardless of gender.

    Unsurprisingly, TC, the foils don't provide lift when they surface. ;-)

    I remember crossing on this in my Poppa's Morris Minor, before the coat hanger opened in '59. ;-) Bumper to bumper - much like traversing the harbour bridge today, but a lot less fun. Thanks for posting.

    How that shitster hasn't thrown prop shaft bearings is beyond me. It shudders like the worst apex axel tramp imaginable.

    The Transat CIC 2020

    ^Thanks for the update, JB. She definitely was quick as, St Michel/Virbac, with Jean-Pierre. Transat Jacques Vabre winner, IIRC.

    Looks like any kind of seaway is going to be troublesome for these beasts...and spectacular. Ferry wakes included. Pic. RG
