Pierre Orphandis tweeted "vsail: Ridiculous! If Voiles & Voiliers are correct in the article about the future VOR boat, then Knut's denial of that is simply ridiculous".

He has a point.

If you can't win on the race course, win in the board room.

Agreed, but it has nothing to do with the designer. If all boats are equal crews will be forced to push harder to get ahead (see southern ocean leg) and the only way to know when to stop pushing is when you or everyone else breaks.
