Is the 'highlight' the spraying water?

But the breeze was inconsistent in strength and direction - beginning at 9kts, but increasing to 14kts in the afternoon, and when the decision was made to curtail the session the breeze had increased to 18-20kts from the south with a swell - put at 1-1.5 metres coming in from the east, capped off with a strong wind chop.

As we are now in the month of the 2024 America's Cup Match, the weather conditions and how they are handled by the AC75, are as much of interest as the performance of the Swiss team, who are the only team sailing out of the 2024 America's Cup venue of Barcelona.
 


I liked it, but the Recon crew need to be filming from a stable platform and need to zoom in closer to the action while they're at it
Just a thought , but utilizing an object of scorn and pity (the hydro boat) for recon work, would solve the filming issues and give the boat a useful purpose in the process.
A win win for everyone, or is that too easy?

too easy. It's recon, there are rules to make it something less than what we want it to be.

This is gonna be epic once the teams master their craft! It'll be interesting to see the teams direction they decide to go in given they may have a decent sea state to contend with this time around. This may be a test of seamanship as well as design this time around

yes, the sea state looks like it will be playing a part and none of the Alinghi videos have been "race zone" close to shore yet either.
