I want PB to serve up some of JS own medicine some time and roll them or stall them but do something that sends the big shot across that this is TNZ's time!

JS: "tight race" "boat competitive"

You're just spouting alternative facts now dude.

For the time being indeed. Still SF traumatized, hence I will certainly not celebrate.

You're traumatised ?!?!? ;) 

I'll start celebrating after ETNZ has won and I've received assurances from our legal counsel!!

You have to wonder why SKY NZ could have some race analysis between the race so we don't have to listen to these guys craping on....

Silly BT horse-lady "We're all worried about the implications of a ETNZ win"

Fucks-sake lady!

This is rich!
But at least you do not have to endure the borderline-imbecile music on Servus. I'm going crazy!

Yes, this. There are a few people in NZ that they could grab to do some analysis surely???

No reason to wonder.

They're too cheap to pay anyone worthwhile to do the job.

I wonder what the broadcast agreement was? Maybe Sky have to take this crap in its entirety?

Hope that rudder is a no-issue. Not that there's been any mention on the commentary from Ken and Joey...

I read somewhere that ETNZ offered Lester & Tasker to Sky, but Sky tried to charge ETNZ for their generous offer - needless to say, Dalton told them what to do with their invoice!!

Voda deal was last lifeline attempt, Sky are circling the drain, once NZRU rights got then its game over... Just a matter of time, things aren't amicable between the two these days

I really think the broadcast isn't too bad. Keep in mind no one gets much practice. Don't know why Clean keeps bagging on the broadcast and on NBC Sports... just as mainstream these days.

OR looks a lot like BAR to me. Pushing stability to try and get on terms speed wise with ETNZ.

Better than so many things!

Turtles, cruise-ship discharge floaters, helmsman that fell overboard, bits of BAR

But not better than ETNZ ;-)

So, is the better windage via the cyclors more important on the upwind or downwind?

Yes

No, upwind compresses gaps, and ETNZ tacked more to cover... just very clinical racing

A moment at the start oft he beat OR got a break and TS had to call JS back up onto the wind. Desperation stakes when the helm starts manufacturing wind shifts.
