Au contraire race 1 looked champagne!
As for gear it looks like a right old mix with the hollom departure, Bieker 5, maybe a bieker 6 , pickled egg to name but a few in the top 10. Various builders, ovington, composite craft (UK) I guess Object 2 / Jason king for the Canadian / US / Aus and some Henderson B6s too.
think lennon sails are getting plenty of traction off the success at last worlds. The UK boats almost exclusively on the selden HM mast now. Not sure re rest of world.
Foils are a mixture again between composite craft (Hollom), Woof, and McGranes specials (UK) guess r.o.w are on bieker ( russel brown / henderson / jason king) / waterat foils.
Generally getting skinnier
