    That would be awesome indeed!  Almost tempted to back LR, but my Kiwi brother-in-law would NEVER forgive me. :rolleyes:

    I watched them nail the landing, so when I saw your post, I thought WTF? But yes, they had an unscheduled deconstruction event!

    Hahaha... just watched that myself.   Different foil setup, do they have to cope with sonic booms instead of cavitation?

    Many thanks for taking the time to translate for us! If down the track you get a chance, the comments regarding the foils will be of great interest.  ;)

    "The hard stop is the 21st March and the Italians have been clear about sticking to the schedule so the boat leading after the 21st March wins the Cup. That’s it. Winner declared." O...kay!    :huh:

    I must have missed something, what is the modification? To LR?

    I've always been quite amazed that the original designers came up with the whole AC75 concept - and that the teams actually got it to work! Congrats to them all.  :)
