    Related:  I always had great respect for Paul Cayard who learn Italian to be part of Il Moro and translated for his boss during press conferences. I wonder what Italian sounds like with an Australian accent?

    Makes sense.  It's three months to the AC and INEOS appear to have revealed their last set.  If three months is accurate, we should see others splashing their last set soon, and there would be no reason not to use them during the Christmas Cup.

    Holy shit that’s a bad article.    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/americas-cup/123404373/americas-cup-luna-rossa-make-quick-modification-to-new-boat This has made me realise that even at its worst, this place is a much better source of information than mainstream media.   “The skeg is seen...

    So far they’re not getting a lot less sailing than the other teams... There will be a period of transferring gear from B1 to B2, but I shouldn’t have thought it would take this long. Rumour has it that they’ve got some innovative gear (not the hull). Perhaps they’re waiting. We’re unlikely to...
