  1. Hmm, 50 ft cat v 75 ft mono. F50 rig length 18 to 28 m AC 75 mast height 26.5m So, based on rig length, the 50fter should be at least as expensive, probably significantly more.
  2. Up to a point, just those foils waggling spoil it a little for me (must admit a bit sceptical it would work at all when concept released). Not doubt the AC75s are a techno masterpiece, just a bit too OTT for my (complete) liking.
  3. Hmmm. Just thinking the exact opposite, ie how nice it looks to have some thing foil that looks like it should foil. Gimme wings over twin panel sails and geometry over powered ballast any day
  4. 906 or do you mean 916? 916 still a bit temperamental in the mechanical stakes, but but beautiful. Lifted their game after that. My preference is 848/848 Evo nearly as much show but a lot more reliable go.
  5. LR definitely took the foot off the, ETNZ got a nice puff. Another beat?? LR sit on them and win by a 20+secs
  6. Because the other aggressive skipper comes after you, sits in your wind from above, comes at your from below, treats you like a cat does a mouse, completely stuffs your max VMG, you miss the start by 10 sec with them sitting above you (or below) pouring shit from a great height. Race over.
  7. Re Gap: Cant remember who , but someone AC related once commented that even turds are tapered. ie gap = drag They seem to have been fiddling with that area an awful lot. Changes weekly almost. Possible they are not really happy with some aspect of the main control and having gone the boomless route, now have to live with its limitations.
  8. ??? Really! Gap between sails, bits sticken out. Thought it looked a bit 'hula' compared to the very clean LR main control setup
  9. NZ PM has just announced a week long lockdown of Auckland due to an outbreak of the virus. https://www.smh.com.au/world/oceania/auckland-to-head-into-week-long-lockdown-tomorrow-ardern-20210227-p576eo.html
  10. Wow. Is that the deck cover dangling above to the left?
  11. I was a little surprised someone in AM beat GA to the punch on this. Reduced drag, more RM worked well for the foiling (and non foiling) A Cat, why not and AC75. Sails look much nicer than the fat heads IMHO
  12. 10 knots TWS and 33 knots BS........not entirely beyond belief based on the telecasts numbers so far. Will keep a closer eye on next rounds Not sure on the 45 degrees TWA tho.
