but a start then a slide down in pressure could be a tricky bit of work for the CZ. its about the time limit.

GD stated a few days ago that it's going to be windy, whos wrong???

I heard the Kiwis are going to try the dual helmsman configuration with Peter on port and Chuck Norris on starboard, to kick Jimmy's ass
taken in contention with Colin meads, Buck Shelford and Ritchie Mcaw chuck alas fades to insignificance, there is however another very likely candidate shown here holding out for port helm postion, a few also rans were determined to be possibly carrying too much imbedded metal to be allowed anywhere near a  steering compass

Mozzy's latest video is a bit rambling. Yet it does come down to asserting ETNZ has around 1.7% more righting moment and 10% less foil drag (with the tips piercing the surface) which should give them a nice little speed gain between 1.5 and 2 knots upwind.

They argue that the flat T foil (compared with LR anhedral) allows them to swing the arm out at a shallower angle so it is further extended from the hull increasing righting moment.

A bit rambly????

In one of the two Shirley R podcasts at here that I listened to yesterday, somebody pointed out (probably ETNZ’s Ray Davies?) that if one of these AC75’s is in a knot more wind pressure than the other boat, well then they will be sailing close to 4 knots faster! 
 

Enjoyed both segments, Part 1 and 2, some good listening - maybe especially Francesco.

Agreed! Shirley's interviews are fucking awesome! These two hours have been a great listen this weekend.
