Its 2:59 est and the time limit for the day is 3:25 est, so 25 min races that means a decision is coming in less than 1 min.

looking at the webcam, looks like i see 2 boats out there, moving at a good clip.  looks like one of them is ETNZ but not sure of the other.  also not sure if they're foiling but looks like they're moving pretty well

The broadcast window is irrelevant as soon as the event enters a delay:

"if behind schedule, the Regatta Director may schedule races missed to be run in the time after the broadcast window."

Iain may decide it's too flukey to race and call it on time, but the SIs now give him pretty wide discretion to get the Final completed.

They're foiling around on NBCSN. Saying 6.7 knots so possible start. No idea what the rolling average is though.

I guess they need to get a race in by 3:25 est.  I thought they had to be done by then.

I'd rather they call it and decide this in a breeze.  If they get one off it'll be another fluky wind crap shoot.

The latest they can start is 4:35PM local (Bermuda).

Anybody got the rule where RC can shorten to the same leg they are on?  Is there any limit to what RC can do to shorten... for example could the race be to the first leeward gate after the reach mark?  Not saying should... asking if could under the rules.

Having Andrew Campbell is great. Where is KR?

Agreed, Great to see Andrew and he's doing a great job. "Where is KR?" Who cares, I'm preferring to listen to Andrew and insight way more than the time filling noise KR makes.

Too bad that this maybe the last day we'll hear him and back to KR after that.

J-Class regatta starts tomorrow.  Maybe that explains KR's absence from the broadcast.

I think Andrew does the pre race and KR takes over once the warning signal goes off.

 

Not today

Kind of sucks that the breeze shifted 25 degrees. Happy for the ETNZ, but geez, not much racing left .

Its a horizon job.

I wish they didn't run this race.  Much rather it decided in 12+knts, but shit happens and the better team is going to win.

So sorry for NO and the Artemis guys, loveable team. But all in all they made too many mistakes.
Now ETNZ, go and kick Oracle's ass!
