I would guess that in doing part of their due diligence they conferred with a UK company called Lewmar which some ofyou may or may not have heard of. 

 

Lewmar came to the conclusion that on paper the pedal system looked good but for unspecified reasons decided it would not perform satisfactorily in a racing application.

 

Time will tell who's got the real deal but I wouldn't look for other teams to jump on the spin class system this time around .

Horizontal or even vertical net in front of the main beam. Whatever the aerodrag, it should be in the AC15 rule.

 

If netting  was of equal spec for all teams so as to not penalize any particular team unfairly how could they not go for it at the very least ?

 

Something needs to be done or it is only a matter of time until something very serious happens .

On the face of it, a good fundraising partnership deal? I've not read further than a quick look over the article provided though.
Is there a particular issue with this?

 
Just putting the Yanks on notice there are other super powers in the world.
 
 
Well the good thing is that with solid funding it crosses at least one excuse off the list .
 
I don't recall we had any last time, did we? Except that we weren't good enough.

That's the only one we didn't hear :)
 
Oh, come on now Max. We weren't moaning all that much were we?   :unsure:

It hasn't stopped and there are already some being put out there for the next go round .

It's all part of the fun and games and I am sure we would do the same if things were turned around . :)

 

 

You can be sure we'll remind you (if things turn around that is)! Otherwise, it'll be more of the moaning, eh? Ha, ha.

 

Fair enough :)

These guys are not being paid enough .

Will the next guy be this lucky ?

I don't think the odds are in anyone's favor once they hit the water .

If they weren't before the safety police have been put on notice but what can or will they do about it .

The very real prospect of a crewman being literally cut in half In a " stadium setting " will certainly give pause to administration and advertisers alike .
