    ETNZ To Attempt Wind Powered Land Speed Word Record

    The lack of build options in the protocol encourage the use of a sim. AFAIK you can only build one set of full sized foils (75), one hull etc. Their sim is top notch, why wouldn't they leverage that advantage?

    The 40 seems to recover quick after splashing down. They look to be chucking it around a bit as well.

    You've pulled that number out of your arse. It's flying the boat, which as we saw with the last Cup, is not a big deal. If you knew anything about sailing, you'd know there's much more to it.

    Sounds like its a tool to develop their design simulator and AI tech - knowing how successful ETNZ have been with this approach. Mature IP (software) is essential in today's cup. I think ETNZ sell a scaled down version of their simulator with their design package?

    AC40

    Much smaller mainsail than the 75, so getting out from under it should be easier.

    AC40

    Although early days, they look to be way more robust than the F50s, which when they go over, usually involves extensive damage to the fragile wing. The AC40 would make a great GP boat. Likely half the number of shipping containers, and a much quicker assembly time, so thus far cheaper running...

    Apparently she was fine after her little mishap and they sailed on.

    Twin engined RIB? I think you need quad 450s to be considered a serious contender...

    Impressive how turn key the technology has become, that they can foil tack and foil gybe on their first sailing day, with a new helm who has never sailed one of these boats.

    She looks sweet as, and the lead in time to first foiling has been dramatically reduced.

    So they can just arbitrarily cancel a race? Strange.... 14min races in light air doesn't really work. It's been farcical today.

    Weird how yesterday the live feed was not geo blocked, then that kicked in for the replay. Today's feed is blocked for Aus at least. VPN ext set to the US is working though.

    Not sure, but as Wuss said, originally the Kiwis were doing everything differently to the other teams - I assume he means the setup - and that none of that worked. They changed that and have been getting some results.
