Interesting in the tech Tuesday talk "the jibs flatten with increasing wind pressure".  So they make the edges stretch more than the center?  Anybody got anything more than that?  Cool approach, could be a "trickle down" benefit to us mortals?

At a price! 😳

BAR is clearly the one to beat, consistently able to sail aggressively, fast and fight back when things go wrong.  


If the Cup goes to the UK (and that's still a big if) BA and Martin Whitmarsh said there would be a 100% Nationality Rule inserted for AC 36 so no more shopping for Spithill to other Teams winning the AC. Percy & Brittle from AR would likely come over to BAR to defend it and the Kiwis but especially the Aussies could have their own Team with Spithill, Slingsby and Langford heading a complete Australian Team.




Would like to see this sport be more encouraging of all people, so need to have mixed crews on every boat too (plus the 100% nationality rule).


It is the characters that make it interesting and this would give it, imho, give add much to this.

Any Aero sailors visiting Australia will be supplied a boat for these events at no charge





If I were to plan a trip to Australia to include one RS Aero regatta there - which regatta should it be?
