Couple of takes from the recent videos:

1) Crew does not cross over on every maneuver.

2) Able to stay on foils at very low speed.

At about 2.40 in the @airflownz video above, after slowing right down, she turns towards North Head and accelerates - the sound of the creaking and cranking as she took off was impressive, as was the feeling of power.

Love this boat.

the angles they gybe through don't look especially wide, coming up on the wind after the turn and then going deeper.

my concern is that LR didn't do this in any of the light air races they just stayed on a deeper course going through wider angles on the gybe. I can only hope that they have enough of a speed advantage to negate it but I am worried in 8 kts.
