    Actually chay, if there were a way I would rather find an antenna to reduce satellite reception. I would rather my AIS signal was just for its intended purpose and if I want anyone outside my immediate vicinity to know where I am I can use other means.

    2019 Middle Sea Race

    Why so nose up on foils - IMOCA

    I have a B&G H5000 pilot with a hercules procesor and a 6 axis compass (not sure why it is called a compass). Heel is certainly used as an input. So I would imagine all modern pilots would also have this, difficult to see how else they could control things so effectivly.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    Looking at the pics the foils look very long. Maybe long enough so if the exposed bit is damaged there is still enough left to deploy to be useful? Bit like some craft knives.

    Fastnet 2019

    That can work both ways at present but will dissapear once th UK is out of the EU making visits for boats with suspect VAT status less problamatic. At present French boats purchased through their 50% VAT reduction scheme have had problems when visiting UK shores.
