^ One day?
 
Hell,they dream of a 'days' sailing - it's down to about 30 minutes - if all goes well!
 
What is the ratio for spin time vs sailing time by now - 10:1?


I make it a rule to never attend an event that takes me longer to park and get to my seat than the duration of the actual event itself :)

ACEA needs to take a leaf out of the GC32 Tour book. Go to venues that are conducive to foiling multihulls. Lake Garda was a consistently perfect venue to showcase foiling.

The GC Racing Tour has very few sponsors involved with any commercial requirements. So can choose venues more easily.
On the other hand, the breeze after racing yesterday in Portsmouth was perfect... It has more to do with the TV schedule than anything else.

Ah yes the TV Gods again .

The AC has sold its soul to the devil :)

As a sailor sitting at the dock after completing a drift race and seeing the breeze come up with plenty of daylight left has got to be gut wrenching . Then again there is that pay check to think of LOL

All the time , expense and effort for MAYBE one day of sailing.

 

The television shot callers and sponsors are lining up for a chance to get a piece of this action .

Forecast looking very light for the weekend........

 

 

Which is in keeping with the interest in the AC itself. 

 

Has the net ever been this slow prior to an " event "  ?
