    Team HYDROGEN Chase Boat

    So fucking stupid. Insisting every team have one of these has to be one of the biggest wastes of team resources possible in this cup cycle. Just a ridiculous demand on teams. Does Barcelona even have the H2 intfrastructure to support these?

    Team NYYC

    So lots of chat, not a lot of news about AM training today. Are they out there? Which other teams are out there? What's today's news?

    Trimmers not watching the sails - how do they do it

    The recent OR vid about java use on the boat had the jib trimmer talking about what's on his readouts that he uses to trim. Was winch pin load, cunningham load and forestay load. Plus info about target boat speed and the usual wind angle.

    REAL expert commentary

    IOS apps let you pick audio from commentary or either boat. It's great. Didn't work for race 13 though, anyone else get that?

    GATES !?!?

    I got excited there for a minute, thinking this was a thread about Bill getting into racing boats. Not to be.

    Sports Betting - odds are in

    Punters saw value, bookies covering. That's all. $2.50 in a two horse race is good eating.

    Sports Betting - odds are in

    I also backed the Wallabies over the saffas, but that was more from patriotism than belief! Watch Quade stuff it all up again. Its almost guaranteed. A pretty good 14 hours, in prospect. Wallabies vs Boks, election watching, AC34, woe and gnashing of teeth from the leftards at the election...

    The Kiwi Righteousness Front need to put their money where there mouths are. Such hubris! Fucking moaning cunts, the great bulk of them that post here. FFS. I've put $50 on OTUSA FTW at $2.32. Get on board, or STFU.

    I agree, the interpretation answers a question about fairings. But the answer confirms the simple reading of the rule that any part of the wing on a chord wise plane parallel to the base plane is to count in a measurement of girth. It seems like it would have been sensible to calculate girth...

    I can't get to show pics, but there's a few heli shots of OR boat 2 from yesterday with not a lot hanging outside the wing skin. Think of ETNZ like the LR wing shots of Bruni yelling about busted sheaves. Sean, why do you think the interpretation implies only fairings are affected? The...

    And it's not like LR are going to protest - they have the same external control horn design.
