It is not really a race with ETNZ so clearly in the lead, so VE is right.

Well, interesting, 1st two races impacted by mechanical failures.  Would LR have been able to beat ETNZ after ETNZ's nose-dive in the 1st race, or could they have retained the lead they likely would have had.  This series could very easily be with LR up 2-0.  I know, lots of IFs, but still.

Just shows no one is going to win in straight races in this regatta.  They've all pushed so close to the limit everyone will have issues.  4 problems in 2 days on three different boats.

ETNZ looked like they were sitting between 23-25knots boatspeed uphill consistently, leeward hull looked like it was lift off slightly at times as well.

And VMG above 19 knots most of the time

Light fog in San Francisco. Good starts by both boats. In the closing seconds Deano on port crossed starboard tack ROW boat LR and tacked. They went to the line together with ETNZ accelerating rapidly. Hit 40 knots just after starting.  Still relatively close as they rounded Mark 1.  Then ETNZ sailed slightly deeper and faster. LR was first to gybe as they neared the boundary.  ETNZ deeper, and slowly pulling away was able to hang on for precious metres and seconds before they gybed.

So, what happens if they have a problem with the Hydraulics downwind? Do they lose control? Can they head up and into the wind, or do they need daggerboard control to do that?

They said they wanted it to be more like the F1.

 

The top teams usually win or lose because of equipment failure.

 

But it is still pretty much a parade until that failure. Exciting parade, even with the absence of tacktics, though

Winter in AUS - 23 degrees, sunshine.

Can someone please get Gina Rinehart to like sailing?

 

You're nominated!  Even though iron ore prices are falling.

1st time in 13 years Prada have taken a point over TNZ!

 zerograad tweeted that LR beat ETNZ in 2007 Louis Vuitton Round Robin. Or are you only counting knock outs?

Luna Rossa helmsman Chris Draper did a nice job in the pre-start to get a fairly even start against Emirates Team New Zealand. But the Kiwis were to windward and literally took off, popping up onto their foils to open a 10-second lead at the first mark.

Emirates Team New Zealand sailed lower and faster than Luna Rossa on the first run and stretched its 10-second lead to 23 seconds at the leeward gate. Lower and faster "is a real good combination when you're trying to win a sailboat race," said announcer Ken Read.

What was the reason behind the start time for the LVC semis & finals being pushed back 1 hour? So far looking like it could be a bit of a dumb move.

How did LR look sailing?  How were their jybes?  Was LR or ETNZ winning upwind?


ETNZ had absolutely smoking VMG upwind.

 

Max upwind was 27.01 kts according to ACEA data.

 

Yeah there was a point they were banging along at 25+ on a pretty normal bearing with most of the leeward hull out, a little while later if the on screen graphics are to be believed they were doing 22 knots only 30 degrees off the wing! That is some serious climbing uphill.

Wind up on the limits.  Lots of commentator chatter about whether we'll get another race in.

Joke.

Ken Read saying how its a classic SF Bay day, and Jobson jumps in and says how they should be sailing an Etchells as its a really nice day.
Don't know if they turned his mike off or not, but they might have to Rule 60 Jobson and finally get him off the commentary!

No more race today. That's exactly the situation that should have been avoided by introducing the AC72s. Unsatisfactory.

From what I read yesterday you have to change a setting so it thinks you're in the UK/Canada anywhere but the US

Maybe this is OR's strategy? Wind limits so low that the challenger series won't finish till September 7th giving them no time to prepare  :lol:

Have you pushed the little Red button (upper left corner of the screen) and seen it change to green.  You are only in proxy mode when that button is green.  Also, in the options screen you DO NOT want to choose the USA option - pick the UK or random options.

gutted, i was pretty excited about the LVC finals but rather than having 4 races by now we havent had 1 with both boats finishing.   ok so we can't really control the breakdown problem but the wind limit thing is getting silly, surely they need to either adjust the limits, how they are measured or the timing of the starts, why now bring it forward an hour.
