    All care - no responsibility: great gig for him. Be very interesting to see how his coordination with Bruni works under pressure as they've never been put under previously!

    Frenchie Jean van de Velde's choke at the 1999 Open Championship at Carnoustie was sadder...leading by 3 strokes standing on the 72nd hole and finishing up with a triple-bogey 7 to go into a 3-way play-off (which he lost).

    “Since Sunday, we have worked really hard on behalf of everyone in Auckland and all Kiwis to give COR the opportunity to demonstrate some honour and respect for this country and delay the PRADA Cup until we have a greater chance of everyone being able to enjoy and benefit from being back into...

    They've already helped with their "FCS" problems :lol: . The Italians will of course be screeching " It'sa Anglo-Saxon conspiracy!!"

    His finger slipped into the wrong hole, with the A-hole directly above and to the left of the Z hole..

    If Team Brexit passed measurement with the hole in their main, the AP would find it difficult to defend their ruling in court. If Team Brexit created the hole post-measurement, then Britannia was no longer measurement-compliant, and they sailed a con-compliant boat and should have been DQ'ed...

    Someone is getting very desperate with these Interpretation applications...getting to be quite pedantic: When is a strop not a strop? When the eyes at each end are not spliced! Pneumatic actuated locks - I think I know where this is heading...

    You make a lot of assumptions about things - is it a pommie thing? GAshby is highly visible to those who matter, and is always available to the media. ETNZ would lose nothing in having GAshby helm if Burling were to walk.

    I would not be at all surprised if GAshby had a major input into the design and lay-out of TR, and in the sail design and inventory. He is the quiet assassin in ETNZ who keeps his head down and does his job without any fanfare. And he's a master at answering leading questions without actually...

    I love it that none of the opposition are talking about GAshby.

    Why would Burling be trimming main when they've got the best on the planet in GAshby aboard??

    The flaps would be driven by Maxon motors I would suggest: light weight, small size, high-torque capacity, quicker response.

    The hydraulic cylinders driving the barrel to which the foil arms are connected have a stroke of 780mm - 78cms is a little more than a "few cms"..
