I see Nathan joining ETNZ as I think the team will grow after this cup with more funding. Maybe a 2 boat campaign. The game has changed since Bermuda so he has a lot to learn. He lives in NZ and it is always nice to be on a winning team.
As I have mentioned. ETNZ have never sounded so confident as they are now. They know what LR has and they know what they have
To use AI to work out how to sail the boat faster than the sailors. Then use that to teach the sailors how to sail faster is possibly going to be the most revolutionary aspect of this cup cycle. Even apart from it's ability to test foil designs without using the sailors time
It says a lot that ETNZ started their design path with the largest area foils in the fleet and ended up with the smallest foils. The LR foils look to be copies of ETNZ original B1 foil concepts.....ETNZ has been there and done that and moved on :rolleyes:
