    Key West

    the coverage blows. even the best T2P TV can come up with is a freaking 8 min long video of "highlights" with a narrative which is more or less the press release word for word. Why cant we get into the nitty gritty of things? AT LEAST, with a professional race organization running things...

    Just a MINI thread...

    my guess is that you can push her really, really hard in the waves and wind. It probably carries a lot of righting moment too, making it very powerful. The dynamic loading is probably breaking the boat due to a combination of the two things I just said. This is all just a hunch.
