WOXI arrogance is high. Let’s see if they can sail as well. Having waited this long, they might as well retire.

Surely penalty turns for WO.  Black jack looking good now, but going to get run down by Comanche when the pressure builds.  And, build it will.

Can not tell at all from that replay whether C had to alter course before WOXI completed its tack. Telephoto shot from behind no help either

The incident happened before the final turn mark ,correct me if i am wrong but didn't he have to do the turns prior to passing the next mark? Other wise it goes to protest preparing to be reamed lol

Live, there was no question.  LDVC had to alter course to avoid.

Must be the worst start by ricko ever! And then the port starboard with the Indian.

What a disappointment to people who look up to them. I was hoping that they would win but don't think I can after that.

So WOXI blows the start, screws up the crossing and all while running the “7” logo on their sails. No doubt the ads are to distract you from that abomination

The infringement rule has changed over the years.

Now, if before the sea mark it is penalty turns or if you lose the protest a time penalty of not less then 5 minutes.

You should also note it on the declaration. (SI 26)

Different after the sea mark.

At one time it was no alternative penalty inside the harbour to stop stupid stuff. (like 2002)

Then it was alternative penalty but you hard to do it after the sea mark top stop congestion in the harbour.

The replay of the protest incident has been edited so heavily that you can't tell what the hell happened.

Now we have to wait for a protest in Hobart where WOXI will probably lose.

Two turn penalty for any infraction inside Sydney harbor.

Scoring penalty for anything outside the heads, at the discretion of the IJ.

My annual Simpsons "Old man shakes fist at cloud" moment....in an age where every kid has a drone, we have to put up with this crap coverage and peter shipways commentary...on everything WOXI, Comanche and (with just 2 concessions) Sydney based boats...

How 'bout some coverage of the other starts? some run down on the "real race " favourites? Ok...I'll calm down now...until next year!!

After LVD Deviated course, footage from WO clearly shows that they were overlapped to windward, evidence that there would have been contact if they had not altered course.

The Clipper boats are built like brick shithouses, made that way to not break in the middle of an ocean storm, speed is way down their list with their design priorities. Me thinks their mast was profiled off a power pole.

Seeing an add for Super Foilers here.

Was that the most lame advert ever? I snored thru the second part - but what i saw showed some pickle fork on stalled foils, then a nosedive and a clown trapeezing thru the air....barely foiling and nuthin super. Bring back the 18's with the "beep" free audio for a larf!

A lot of ego in Ricco's decision making there. When do they find out re the penalty?

Read that, but it was a port starboard whatever the rules say.

I posted it so people could read about the potential penalties.  Hopefully everyone agrees it's clear-cut that WOXI is in the wrong.  I can't imagine anyone arguing otherwise successfully.

So the rules do not provide for DSQ, just a time penalty?

That means that it is possible to get a largish time penalty and still finish in front of the boat you infringed?

Jury can still dsq if they think it's warranted. WOXI could have done penalty turns and still beaten Commanche at Hobart, so no different than time penalty. Penalty is likely harsher than doing turns.

Richo has never gotten over the fact that WOXI is no longer the top dog in the biting order in the StH and drives the boat with a large chip on his shoulder.

From the limited footage shown, I think WO may be ok. 

I take it there may be something in the amended regs you are aware of, I only had a very quick look.

Replay of incident definitely edited.  Agree straight P&S incident. From what we saw Comanche altered course to avoid WOX11.

Still disgusted at not only 7 coverage but media in general....don't they know anything about the Volvo ???? :angry:

Just about rum time......

I noticed that too. It's not like there is no breeze in there, must be missing something here.

Out of all WOXI's options leading into and during that sequence, isn't tacking directly in front of Comanche the worst possible option? If she had held the cross, whether she fouled or not, it would have not put the boats as close as they came. Comanche would have ducked her and protested. I feel like that would have been more forgiveable. Deliberately tacking there just looked bad.

If the owner was driving that probably would have happened. A dick move in a small boat, in a 100' fuckin  dangerous and one that Richo doesn't want to own, despite the consequences in the protest room. Hope the jury serve him up a lesson.

Looked like Richo panicked and did what he should have done a couple of boat-lengths prior. I don't think there was any method in the madness.

Don't these WOXI guys actually ever sail boat for boat?  Or is all about tablets and targets and sail cross overs.  It was simple boat-for-boat stuff.  There were no trees coming out of the front of Comanche's jib.  Ergo, not crossing.  So have a plan.  Big duck going the right way or tack early and go the wrong way. Instead, the WOXI brain trust froze and sailed on hope.  And then panicked.  Not an impressive look.  

Seems like Spithill just might have timed his tack away from BJ to force WOXI make a decision.  That might have come from just a few previous bits of experience, no?  Challenge the abilities of the boat speed guys to actually race their boat?
