  1. Presumably someone also going after the boats that fell off, if still floating ??
  2. No, that green AQS tug / supply vessel was still on the deck yesterday.
  3. Needs some fins at back. Guess i can ask.
  4. Well as it happens i got an alert about this beauty earlier. Talk about running costs being more important than purchase price. Surely a few friends "investing" and a lick of paint here and there and we good to go ??? https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1943/coast-guard-cutter--ex-steel-hull-2871948/
  5. 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).

  7. Damn, now i need to find my NJ boaters card from 20yrs ago. Might even have a really old CG boat safety card somewhere.
  8. Do the coast guard enforce local laws ??
  9. Greta must have jinxed him.
  10. Yes it is his son.... https://www.sail-world.com/USA/Red-Bull-Youth-Americas-Cup-Next-World-Energy-Team-revealed/-110877?source=google
  11. Well you do also get to say no to Greta
  12. Right so if you french folks while reviewing the rules could just move to a 2 year cycle, that be great
  13. 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.
  14. Must admit my first thought was "What Would Alex Do"
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Ah thanks, figured probably so, but the "set off from Stanley" had me wondering.
  18. Kayak circumnavigation of what ??
  19. Yeah but he was great in the Drum video.
  20. Oh idk, I think it might be much less expense to just cut off your front and replace with a more scow like bow then getting into foils, see ATR/HB lawsuit for $$$.
  21. So what is the point of the max beam rule 1 meter (?) aft of the bow ? Does imoca just not like the scow look ?
  22. Cam's cam facing aftish vs Rib's cam looking forward.
  23. Or maybe each "team" has a few sacrificial junior members running interferance as in smokie and the bandit. We can call them domestiques, that should make sense to our french friends.
  24. Well we know Boris has a drone. Weather permitting could be another asset in the morning.
