  1. Only one person coming out of this looking good...
  2. etnz must have kicked Burling off the boat like that guy said they should
  3. Yep. Good to see a different entry strategy from LRPP on starboard in this race though.
  4. Bold decision to ditch the traditional third keel
  5. It’s just all the extra weight he has added to the boat in carrying out his repairs
  6. got a bit on now... to be fair it's max heel over the last hour. It is cool, if kinda meaningless, to get this data from the boat
  7. @Lickindip found one of your gym guys for you
  8. I generally agree with your post, but this stat is a fair way off. Your 5% is based on fatalities : races started. The odds of being killed would be fatalities : drivers starting races. 1018 races with 20 drivers on average (don’t know how accurate that is) = 20,360 starts. To 52 fatalities, that’s 0.2%. So if there’s been 5 keels lost over the years the risk of dying in an F1 race is something like 5 times greater than losing your keel in a Hobart. Of course the comparison isn’t apples for apples, so I’m not sure how helpful it is at all. IMO it’s enough to just note a 0.04% failure
  9. St Jude needs to average 13.13kt from here (c.f. 8.3kt average so far) Daguet needs 26kt Enterprise 11.1kt Philosopher 10.35kt Azzuro 8.61kt Patriot 10.45kt Katwinchar 8.27kt Love & War 11.18kt Chutzpah 14.93kt Gun Runner 10.4kt So yeah I reckon.
  10. Yep. Would say congrats Matt Allen & crew but it’s only the first race in the series after all!
  11. They sailed a pretty bloody respectable race to be in the mix all the way and to end up where they did I reckon. If it is the case they lost a few miles for the shark even more so.
  12. 6.1kt now. Bloody painful! 34nm to go, just inside 4 hours to do it (to pip Alive), and it’s just going to tick away in front of them
  13. Jeez I’d love to see what’s going on down there between BJ, WOXI and Scally Great shots, but the real takeaway is how great the new CYCA merch is and how many oceans of fun it is to sail at the CYCA
  14. Looking like a great fight for all positions on the line and a long time before all the quiet and strong races behind are sorted out. Little boats forecast to be in great breeze in 12 hours. Loving it Though not so sexy for IRC7 in 24 hours. Still looks good for a winner from IRC1 or IRC2
  15. I wouldn’t put too much stock in that, they had the Farr 40 Night Nurse at 40m LOA
  16. It’s still there for the rest of us mate. Prob your browser or display settings.
  17. Ripper time for an ad break right on Ricko’s “HEY WHAT ARE YOU DOI-“
  18. Nah that’s just the flogging main
  19. Agreed. Nonsense stuff. Is the penalty for not reporting by HF strict & non-discretionary?
  20. A third option is the boat served its purpose and it’s time to move on.
  21. You clearly don’t hate to say it it’s all you bang on about
  22. Looks like How Bizarre has taken IRC AMS and PHS in the Stanley race. Rush sat all on their lonesome in light air west of the rhumb line and lost out on the line to Lord Jiminy. New White Noise has 2nd on AMS in their first race, not bad
