  1. How much of a tacking duel is even possible in these boats given the finite amount of energy coming from your grinders? I read earlier one of the reasons for short races is the physical effort involved. Do they have capacity to go tack after tack for long? (Not that the grinders won't give their all).

    OLympics.....Just vaccinate all the athletes

    Last week it was Charles Barclay saying pro athletes should all get vacinated, now this. How about everyone just wait quietly for your turn, enough with this jump the line stuff.

    Must admit my first thought was "What Would Alex Do"
  11. Wondering if we will see something closer to AC style foil systems in imocas. Not the T profile but a high or even deck level "hinge" so you can swing one or both right up out of water when preferable.

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    So Black Jack ships to Monaco, change their minds and ship her back to Aus for one more S/H which may well not happen. Quite an impressive 2020 that.

    Ah thanks, figured probably so, but the "set off from Stanley" had me wondering.
