  1. Spindrift 2 (sail for change) going on standby. Gitana on standby when she gets back from Transat Jaques Vabre (I'm guessing crew training on the trip back to France)
  2. BPXI is quick, this will be a fascinating faceoff in November. I wonder how much they learned from their limited time with IX, esp considering she was quicker than Gitana at the time.
  3. I know its been discussed already and I completely forget, but what is the reasoning behind Charal's cameltoe?
  4. I think we're at a point where it's not so much raw speed that they're looking for now, it's the ability to always be flying no matter what the seastate is. If you look at the Brest Atlantic, Gitana spent the most time foiling, hense the higher average speed. I think the 24h record is going up soon.
  5. You trying to resurrect the dead bumpy?
  6. It is a marvel for all times.
  7. So besides the towing and fuel, make sure to have a good grasp of your salvage coverage in your insurance. Because as soon as they hand you a pump, it went from covered help to a buttload of money. Somehow people don't realize this. Don't be one of them.
  8. Oh no no no, it was supposed to be the fastest ever! Didn't you read? Swan decreed it to the world! Nobody hates bigger boats, you're just mad your bubby got slapped on the hike up the hill.
  9. Is that going to be the excuse going forward? BuT iTs FoiLiNg! If that's what lets you sleep at night. Let's all breath a sigh of relief for the crew of Skorpios that the wind died. It could have been polonium cocktails for everyone if it hadn't.
  10. It was amusing to see the swan thread get real quiet when Charlie and Paul were ontop of Skorpios.
