    Yes, that was interesting. Flat water strong wind and a little help from the tide.

    Looks like 11hr was third and from the video on their Twitter account a boat behind them can be seen. Probably arkea

    Fastnet 2021

    It's all quite well laid out in this article from two years ago.  https://www.tipandshaft.com/en/imoca-en/quentin-lucet-on-hugo-boss-we-focused-on-hydrodynamic-drag HB hasn't benefitted from the gain in upwind performance like the other boats with the same gen foils.  Eg Charal has a similar...

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Agree that for resale value, having no results is kind of bad, and they should definitely do the TJV to prove doubters wrong. On the other hand, if we look forward to the next VG, it isn't super obvious what kind of a boat will needed to win. Foil and Sail plan update will anyway be necessary

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Team Germany is going in the wrong direction. No wind or something else?

    How about a The Ocean Race Europe thread?

    Well, it was kind of a strange situation. Many boats got stuck close to the exclusion zone, in almost no wind and then a sudden gust hit. Not impossible in a bigger imoca fleet either, and such a mistake would easily destroy many foils etc, but I agree, most imoca skippers would know how to...

    How about a The Ocean Race Europe thread?

    The inconvenient truth is that if all those other boats had been imocas, there would probably have been a much bigger carnage

    AIS is clearly part of the issue on the longer legs, maybe also on the shorter ones. Specifically for this leg, the conditions played a big role
