Missed the races due to family commitments, saw just the last 5 minutes of NZ-AM.

I am SO pissed off!

Just be glad it was not the other way around. Missing those last 5 minutes would have been a real pisser.

Quick Thoughts after Day 1:   Race 1:  The Kiwi’s completely dominate Italy.  Better start, faster boat, better maneuvers, better everything.  Instant reaction is it is tough to believe that

Learnings for TVNZ live coverage? DON'T RUN THE FUCKING ADS THROUGH THE PRE-START/START!!!!! Muppets.

Prada didn't make a mistake other than the start so great effort by AM to only lose by 12 seconds after being forced into extra tacks and gybes  etc

Isn't that about the same margin they beat ETNZ by yesterday?

BA trying to make out like theyre sandbagging. "plenty of upgrades going on the boat after this regatta"

Cant fool me

It would be convincing if they had a new boat coming on board, but they don’t

TURN THE FUCXKING MUSIC OFF!!!! Really annoying on the feed I am watching.

All of the media stuff is pretty rough right now. Comms are spotty, graphics are off, no telemetry available, and loud stupid music.

I hope it's just scraping off the rust and this gets better. Maybe they should install last Friday's update.

Wow having none of these issues with NBC PPV. Consider a PPV option if you dont want this hassle for the next hundreds of hours of racing. Just sayin....

Prada Prediction:

Ineos first team eliminated

Prada final: Prada vs AM

Prada winner: AM

Cup: ETNZ vs AM

Final result: ETNZ wins final race after tied score

 

I predict AM unsuccessful challenger taking maybe 1 or 2 races.

Yeah, INEOS first to row home.

Pretty sure the Gold Pass feed is the same as the YT international feed, which is what I'm watching.

So if Deano and AM hadn't of crashed the boat in Race 1 I think it would have been a similar result. To Prada's credit they look very stable around the course. ETNZ's speed is still obvious let's how the final race goes.?

Unless Ineos manages a technical improvement program of Herculean efforts, I don’t see how they’re gonna not be first to have a long vacation in NZ (who would go home now in the UK weather/Brexit and covid). 

there’s very small margins between ETNZ, Luna Rossa and American boats.

Lemme revise my statement. Ineos won’t need a Herculean effort to turn it around - they’re in a death spiral. 

ETNZ gifted them a 400 m lead out of the start box with an unforced error, made it disappear by the first gate. Crossed before the second. You can’t blame the speed problem on the foil control system.

Yup thanks so much better and far less less painful crikey it's going to be a long regatta with Lester Street and Co banging on ad nauseam.

Maori guy must have popped out to buy some long pants and never returned wise man.
