yeah thanks 

 

fore stay 

 

head stay 

 

fotos ? in article 

 

I wonder what really snapped on that pitch pole wheelie boat 

 

 

More specifically, a forestay attaches to the mast near the top and runs to the bow. A headstay is a forestay, but is usually the highest forestay and runs furthest forward attaching to the bow or bowsprit.

Think of it as safety recommendation #39... a competitor shall be close at all times to assist if the rudder elevators fail to negate a PP event...

 Looks like daylight leaking through connection between the strut to the pole.

Simpson was a team strategist for challenger Artemis Racing. Tuesday's damage to Oracle's boat -- "a strut on the headstay near where the jib attaches" was damaged, according to reports -- is the second time the champions have had trouble on the water.
