Thoughts from today...
The racing started out being incredibly awkward and then got good at the end. Hopefully Ben and Co can pull their piece of shit boat together and stop blaming the supplied equipment that everyone else manages OK with.
I think AM will be the challenger, which will be...
Broadcasting to the masses was for NZ. Not for the internationals.
Sorry your Aussie TV service sucks a dick.
May I suggest NordVPN or similar? For anyone not wanting to use TOR browser and look like a sex trafficker / drug dealer / terrorist.
No racing today, some weird shit going on...
"There will be no practice races on the Hauraki Gulf today as the three challengers refuse to go out on the water."
No joke, the land-based official AC hospo packages for a nine-hour day are NZ$995.
A thousand bucks for a tent and free piss!!!
Watching that latest airflow video I am a convert to B2. It looks like an absolute weapon.
Still too early to draw any real conclusions but so far it looks pretty promising!
The new shape makes sense when you see it in that kind of light wind
32 and 38 were obviously fast
57 and 60 were fast
81 and 82 were fast but fragile
91 (?) and 92 were fast but 100 was just a little more consistent
The AC72 was fast but yes a little slower at the end
The AC50 was fast.
So that's one dud in 25 years... Maybe ;)
