For all you know-it-all bench warmers. What and where?

 

 

If it is Kauri, then it must be at Oracle HQ. Maybe a place to sit and gaze at the big tri?

 

 

Big Tri was still in Redwood as of Tuesday AM.....

My wife and everyone standing on shore were loving the event and the shore was packed and great viewing was free today. Lots of ooohs and ahhhs. We were probably 400 feet from the leeward gate in race one with a view directly up the course.  That said, the five sailors who knew/understood the sport standing around me we all frustrated and mumbling about the "course" as racing from lower Manhattan to Hoboken will never present a great race course. Breeze never settled in North/South.  Foiling was limited, big sails were in limited use, tide was ripping, and each race kept getting shorter and shorter...

I heard with the E32 the trick was to move the inboard engine one inch, cut a hole in the boat and then modify the entire drive box and shaft by moving it forward one inch.... Heard that was super fast fast when sailing in Florida. OR you could just buy a number J2 and a number J4 and have the right sails for the right conditions and win that way...


Again... modified from when it was originally built, wow- what next.

 

CJ, I think you're missing his sarcasm.... read it again. ;)

 

Complete sarcasm ..... Easy to win in 28KTS+ when you are the only boat going upwind since you are the only boat with a  #4 built in the last decade...
