    Class act by you, it’s been a superb AC thanks  including to perhaps the greatest team and boat name ever Luna Rossa!

    How the hell did you learn English this well? Is that word a Latin one?    I had some Latin caned into me (actually, good learning) but wish it had been done like this instead

    Why do you think any part of ETNZ’s boat will even touch water? ?

    I imagine interest will build some, with all the ‘Spithill vs Burling’ drama hype to come.

    What’s the takeaway from this photo, the mainsail control system?

    I got lost shortly after Max’s ‘Ciao Regazzi.’ Anything fun or interesting?

    I’m sure Lorenzo will go and do whatever he wants to  :)   I hope L has the same passion for Luna Rossa as what his father does but it’s probably unlikely.

    Maybe Lorenzo, like Patrizio, simply doesn’t want to waste 2 weeks of their lives in MIQ. No biggy. Thanks for the translation above, here’s the very-similar Gtran attempt ...

    Had a wild freaking experience in Napoli at about this time last year, with a cab driver from Napoli Centrale to where the ferries leave to Ischia and Capri. The driver (who spoke almost no English) ran into a situation and, like everyone else started banging the horn. Then he got out of the car...

    In Napoli???? I doubt it! :)     Napoli is f’ing brilliant, although my favorite spots are within a few miles by train or hydrofoil on the Amalfi Coast and Capri, where the food dialect varies slightly but is still just stunning. Have you ever seen fresh Limoncello Sorrento? My head is hanging..

    The same could be happening now, with $Ratcliffe and Dalts scheming plans.

    Pietro Sibello’s new advice in the decision loop aboard lR is being touted as an improvement, and maybe it is. But on that count (tactics) I suspect that JS’s long-time coach Philippe Presti is playing an even bigger role, including for in prestart set plays. Max has alluded to him too.    As...

    Here we go, a battle between the Beauty and the Beast.

    In case you are responding to me, no I see nothing too wrong with LR’s behavior as CoR so far. But in the case of a loss to Ineos, well then will they help the Ineos cause in any issues that might arise in the Match?

    Agreed, but that makes it different from some (all?) previous multi-Chall Prot’s I can think of, where the CoR role could be taken over by the next best-standing Chall if the original CoR got knocked out. Hopefully it won’t be any problem, the way this edition’s Prot has it.

    The Class Rule does require that changes be made only by mutual consent among all teams. The Prot this time has no such provision.    What is still curious to me is why in this edition’s Prot, LR retains the CoR power even if the get knocked out early.
