    So, the wind is looking better for Wednesday. NW and around 15 knots at race time. This thing is finally getting serious. All of the efforts what with the dissection, the video, the sneeky pictures and the rhetoric from all of you here has been entertaining but, now it's up to the men and women of these teams to see who actually has the minerals, skills and gear to pull this thing off. May the very best team win. And after. We start all over again.

    Spose, it's better than the hairy dwarf ginger picture you currently have. You're sick.

    61 knots after a bareaway in 18 knots TWS. On the same day, 56 knots in 17 knots TWS during a deep reach. This speed was averaged over a run of 2.6 NM. Good luck Red Moon.

    Radio New Zealand has a good website. Twitter isn't bad if you filter it well. It's hard to trust one news source these days as opinion gets injected into journos work these days. What I do know is, The New Zealand Herald is off my read list. is good for breaking news.

    The NZH is fast eroding any respectable journalistic credibility. They have targeted ETNZ for years and claimed all sorts of scandal that, everytime is found to be baseless. I wouldn't give them the steam off my piss. There's plenty of credible places to get your daily spiel from. The bouncer outside the casino knows more of what's going on than the NZH.

    An old workmate sailor who lives at Beachlands has been watching TNZ sailing through the waters out front. He just happens to be a former RNZ navigator with some pretty good trigonometry skills. I've asked him a few times about judging speed from a single fixed point over an estimated distance. I got a complex answer and examples from the German method used by U-boat skippers in WW2. The point he nailed me with was that telling a speed difference between 40 and 50 knots at a distance of 1 NM is simple to see. "Just get them to sail the same line twice, once at 40 knots and once at 50 knots. You'll be able to tell the difference then". Maths nerds have always frustrated me.

    AC36 - The Match

    Brad Butterworth's word has exactly the same value as a first full of flies. Brad is a long time betrayer of truth and honour. If Brad was drowning, I'd throw him the anchor chain. He adds negitive value to this world. He's a taker, a horder and a sore loser. The winner of the AC36 is too difficult to pick at this stage. All of the best people worthy of listening to are saying the same thing. Emirates Team New Zealand will be faster but haven't had much race time. It's too hard to pick.

    AC36 - The Match

    Because of some arrogant fuckers in South Auckland, The Americas Cup start may be delayed. Theses low life scumbags were told to isolate and didn't. One mother fucker went to the gym and another to work at KFC. Now these fucking scumbags have just brought Auckland to a screeching halt for a week. I say these fuckers should be prosecuted for being dumb cunts. It's a disgrace.
  10. Racing starts Sunday. Possibly.

    And now, the long wait until AC36 starts. I'll see you guys in a couple of weeks. This place will now degenerate into an abusive zone.

    They already do.

    Yes, I reckon you're right. Most wouldn't have a problem with it either.

    Exactly. The Herald has become a right wing mouthpiece of the wealthy white. I was a paying subscriber until about two years ago. They have failed journalism and lost their way down a hole they'll not recover from without some massive change in leadership. I'm qualified to say this.

    Steady 12 knots at A buoy right now. Gusting 14 on 30 second waves.
