Not sure its wise for ART to separate that much from ETNZ-AUS.

NZ were making very slight gains most of the way up that leg, but ended up throwing a couple of extra tacks in. Bet they aren't feeling great with this deficit - doesn't look so easy to roll back over them anymore.

that top mark was very costly for ETNZ, Artemis gained another 10s there alone through extra tack and longer distance to sail

Wow.  What can you say?

So many teams dropping commanding leads due to un-forced errors.

Racing won't end today.

Is that the first starboard reach to the finish?

No, they went up but were going upwind. Downwind would be another story

They look sticky down wind compared to ARTs stubby boards.

ETNZ need to get out the hacksaws and trim their foil tips.  Seriously.

Yeah. Upwind, if you slow down, apparent wind speed goes down. Downwind, if you slow down, apparent wind speed goes up!

still shocked there was no penalty

Looks like we should have been more aggressive and made it more obvious....don't they do everything on computers so they probably don't take our dip away as being close enough to AR and therefore no penalty??

THat would be the same theatrics that got them the penalty before that they didn't deserve would it? - doesn't matter if they took evasive action or not if they didn't, in the opinion of the umpires - need to do so.

They took evasive action but obviously the umpires decided they didn't need to.

Bit like choosing slicks in the rain, this game.

Fucking frustrating. Imagine being in it, on the water!

You would have just seen the replay... I rest my case... the guys were almost right in front and slow... ETNZ started turning... then ART corrected...

PB is iceman though, he's response in interview pretty calm and accepting
