....no point in lolling around  

 

......any chance people can refer to boats by name?...might garner some favors from VO and sponsors,eh!  ;)

That would be team name and not 'boat name', right?  ;)

.

...ahh sure, --any-- name!....#'s just seem so 'impersonal' no?  :(

Yes. Actually, in thinking about it, boat names aren't quite as relevant as they used to be, in this brave new OD VOR world.

We used to talk of the relative merits/deficiencies of different boat designs, on different point of sail, but we won't be doing that any more, since they are all rocket ships. There is only so much boat optimisation available after all - so it's hardly worth a differentiator.

It'$ all about the team. $pon$or

 

..... :)

And so long as we want to see yacht racing it always will be!

I don't think anyone is disputing the fact that multis are faster are they?

Fuck off TV! Only one of those boats mentioned is genuinely a cat 2 boat (which didn't break anyway) and it is still not a machine you would race to Hobart even if you could, unless there were a glamour forecast. Go back to ocean anarchy with your boyfriends who are happy with consistent 100nm days!

Thanks for your sound input and valid reasoning- maybe you should be on the committee that proposes multihull entry into the Hobart,
