    I still hold out hope that B1 comes back out of the shed, totally updated into B3..  What is the low hanging fruit to improve drag wise? - bowsprit, can anything be done with it? must a boat sail in a measured condition at all times once the race has started? could it 'fall off' if connected...

    I am wondering if you read "Shock  cords or ropes may be attached to supplied rigging to manage slack and prevent sails  being  fouled." as you may only use shock cord when you are managing slack and also preventing fouling sails.  I personally think the sentence allows for two permissible use...

    Agreed that the MC has that power, and that the runners do that on their own.  I don't think it's relevant that the runner slack can be managed in a more conventional way, the issue is whether shock cord manages slack, not whether there are other ways to manage slack. If that was the intent the...

    I disagree, they have gained permission to introduce large amounts of slack in other interpretations, and they could thus use the shock chords to manage that slack anywhere. Managing slack is a permissible intent on its own, even if you have additional intentions.

    This team excels at making imperceptible changes to things. Makes you wonder if they are bold enough.  I wonder also if these aren't new foils, just modified foils or new flaps or both. Also hard to reconcile that they spent months on the smallest foils around and then switched to some of the...

    Edit: not entirely clear the max chord is in the right place. Two lines proposed, yield different conclusions. Definitely changes to the foil attachment to arm.

    Sounds like there is a load test, so it seems the hull structure must be capable of at least some tension in them.

    Doesn't the rig plan specify where the chain plates are and that runners must be connected. Is your idea therefore that with a huge strop you keep them connected at both ends but there's tons of slack to route it through the skins still?
