So there's plenty of breeze to race, but its not from the direction they want it from so postponed? Sheesh, no wind, too much wind, too shifty, not from the right direction, man no wonder sailing frustrates people.

Not to mention actual sailors who have to sail in it

The day Guillaume Verdier leaves the team you are fucked.

So Dan Bernasconi is just a bystander? He just comes to work every day, drinks coffee all day with his feet up and watches Guillaume work? all day, then calls himself head of design? You're an idiot.

Believe so, yes.

Is there an agreed timeout length between races? They would seem to be cutting close to not being able to have two.

Jimmy didn't cover. Got greedy and paid the price. They had speed and height, but threw it away.

Greedy or just figured he needed to search for more breeze to keep the opposition behind him?

Aggh these races are too short.

By the time you get to comment on something they're already halfway down the next leg & something else happened.

Its like when new TV series get released all at once -> everyone binges that weekend and on Monday the coffee maker conversation is just: -did you see that show?

~yeah, cool

-yah
