    He's in the one BarnyB posted earlier. Understood! Good I thought its seemed strange if he was missing.

    Where is Paul in the video? Does he avoid good PR? After all the crap slung at these guys I hope they go out there with their hair on fire, a nothing to lose attitude, and put it on those guys. It's a long shot, but these guys might just surprise some around here. They're pros, and will handle the blue boat just fine. That bad-luck red is gone, and blue may be the new good luck this team needs.

    The hope is if they can string a few good things in a row. A good launch, a good sail, some foiling, maybe they hit 40knots, than they race and hope they can make around the course. If they can finish a race within 5mins of LP or ETNZ its a win. If they can do all that they will turn some heads because of potential. That will scare some people, because they have nothing to lose.

    Once they start sailing and they know they can handle the starts they should go out. Just for a lap or two would have some value. With the 5min rule it will be hard for them to finish, so why not go out they are warm up a bit.

    PC claims the committee including ETNZ Jim Farmer wrote the 37 recommendations, but Jim writes this below. "Ultimately the Committee found itself unable to make recommendations as a committee because issues around legal liability were unable to be satisfactorily resolved by the Event Authority and the Golden Gate Yacht Club. However, Iain Murray, in his capacity as Regatta Director, following that investigation, did make 37 safety recommendations which have since been attached as conditions of the Permit issued by the US Coast Guard to hold the Event on San Francisco Bay."

    Hearts and Prayers! My heart is broken for Bart's family. He died doing what he loved, but should have lived much longer.

    Unlikely, You mean the team who went with the least risk/reward design is now going completely the other way and expects to be successful. High risk/reward seems very desperate. I expect them to close the gap, and try to build on that success.The other teams have to much real data and design evolution to be leapfrogged, by a computer model with not supporting data. OR models seem to be off when they launch 17. Broken dagger board, shaky platform and low volume bows. They have taken that data back updated their models and now they have moved forward. ETNZ has chosen to build on success taking more risk as they understand the boat more, which has enabled them to backtrack less and build on more reliable data. They stand in a good place with the ability to put data into wing 3, mods to boat #1 and foils. They have had priorities in order 1. Foils 2. Wing 3. Boat
