If/when they start this race will there be play-by-play on any of the forums? I'm frickin' stuck on my Blackberry for the next hour and a half...

 

I was in a similar position to you on Friday and these guys on this board came through with the running commentary. Make sure you put it on LO-FI though. Much more blackberry friendly.

At the windward mark the wind reading is three knots at 160 degrees, at mark 2 it is 150 degrees 2.5 knots and at the start 120 degrees and a promising 6.5 knots. Again, we are very much on the forecast as far as when the SE'ly was forecast to settle and build.

Aparently Clean's dunk as a skunk, Mer is trying to wake him. Genny is hung over like she has never been and the rest of the crew are still missing. Who knows when the next OTWA session will be maybe AC 34.

Apparently it som esort of secret as no one seems to know. There has been no answer on this thread I have been watching. Seems OTW has some sort of hacked/free feed but they aren't talking about how to get it.

15:09Wind speeds a little marginal maybe and 35 degrees of difference between the wind angles at the windward mark and the start area. In the start there is 150 degrees at 5 knots, at Mark 1 there is 3 knots at 185 degrees and at the gybe mark there is 190 degrees 4 knots.

listening to commentary about how USA keeps a hull flying all the time, and alinghi is dipping its windward hull often...

 

For a-class, tornado, .. etc the crew are on trapeze and move their weight around to balance the wind pressure... with the tiller and sail trim changes made as last resort as they either create drag in the water or reduce the drive...

 

Alinghi is a different scale.. the crew weight is so much smaller relative to wind force.. leaving balance only in the tiller and the sheets.

 

For USA.. could the balance can come from trimming the top panels of the wing - where the most healing moment comes? and that trimming can go so far as to almost stall the panel - but leave the rest of the wing trimmed fro speed?

 

Or are they allowed massive counterweights moved by motor in the same way as for canting keels?
