Mark Richards isn't one of off the nassiest.
And nor  it is about his hairdress.
Sorrry for him and Comanche didn't compete.
Betted on the wrong race,

Where is Comanche now, Somewhere in Caribean? Wrong bet.

In the maxi series race vid, Skally's windward rudder kicks up a lot of disturbance. L/C w/w rudder almost no fuss. What's the difference?

You forgot the current.

Haven’t you seen Saving Nemo!
No I didn’t. I just did not include it on the posted images. I grew up on the English Channel. No need to watch a kids movie about a handicapped fish.

Also, it make less difference than one would think for this years race.

Edit: Although, I will add that it is going to kick up the sea state somewhat early on in the race.

Haven’t seen the video but you get two options with wide twin rudder boats.  Set them so minimise drag from windward rudder when heeled or minimise drag when flat.  Designers / crews may have taken opposite options.

Also the Toe-In is variable underway, so it’s possible Law Connect and Scallywag had their angles set differently.

No RP100 Wild Oats maxi this year?  Have the Oatleys hung up thier foulies?   
I actually respect WOXI for not racing. I love talking shit about that boat, but they did well staying in the shed for another year.
