    The Swiss video posted above by Priscilla (#7086) says they are using a Sony P50 4k camera inside the casing, with Fujinon UA 46x zoom lens. I think I saw somewhere else that the broadcasters are using the same combination here for the Cup?? Recommend watching that video if you want a nice...

    The camera is a Shotover M1, NZ-made. And this footage was shot the day that I was out on the TV Cat, so that's me you can see hanging on for dear life on the back. I'm the one with light grey jacket and short legs, the other photographer was Stefano Gattini who works for Studio Borlenghi, the...

    They towed out to Course E around 11.30am (?) and were working out there early afternoon

    They are on quite different headings, so the forces on their foils will be quite different.

    I completely respect and admire Dalton for what he has achieved over the years, with this team, and now with this boat and this event.  My brother rides motorbikes with both him and Gashby - he says they are both good bastards, so that's good enough for me.

    Based on that sentence (AM is definitely NOT testing their boat here), I would say the article is garbage. There has been a lot of garbage spoken around this disagreement between LR and ETNZ, a lot of speculation, a lot of jumping to conclusions. It seems to me that both sides have attempted...

    Yes I suspect so, and a few extra "the boyz did a great job today" and "there is still more on the table" have been added in. Must be worth a knot or two!

    Out of interest I just re-watched Race 1 from the ACWS, LRPP vs ETNZ. PB controlled Jimmy in the start box, led off the line and then took off over the horizon. It was domination, a 1.2km lead after the first lap! I wonder how much of that gap Luna Rossa has made up by now??

    Despite the AC FB post saying that yesterday's extended workout was their last training before tomorrow's races, LRPP were back out briefly today - just caught them coming back in.

    I once went into the Serono offices in Rome - a friend of mine worked for Serono, so I heard about the Bertarellis back then. Ernesto's grandfather and father built up the business, pharmaceuticals and later biotechnology. Ernesto and his sister inherited the business in 1996. Since then...

    Luna Rossa's performance yesterday has deservedly been talked up, but they did make some un-forced errors. This early in Race 2, coming off the foils for some unknown reason - fortunately for them, Patriot wasn't close enough to capitalize.
