The Herald is discussing today what we on SA discussed yesterday!

"But on the other hand, when we go and watch the Kiwis sail they can turn on some really impressive performances.

"What we've seen of them, their performance is pretty scary. If we had of ended up racing as the challenger, we'd have been quite intimidated by some of the performances we've seen.

Triang they had a Super power drive model as well.

The Farmall was a bit more upmarket.

 International was a pretty reliable bit of kit as well.

Is this why they are so fast  :rolleyes:


Hahaha! One interesting aspect of the rumoured 60-knt speed achieved by TR is that the Italians have neither confirmed nor denied it, and yet if anyone outside ETNZ would know - the Italian spying chase boat operators who shadow TR everywhere, would. Says something...

To use AI to work out how to sail the boat faster than the sailors. Then use that to teach the sailors how to sail faster is possibly going to be the most revolutionary aspect of this cup cycle. Even apart from it's ability to test foil designs without using the sailors time

I heard they achieved around 60 kts, max 62.

So Max is 2 kts faster :)

Stop yakking through your butt hole and read the Deed. Conspiracy addiction must be a cultural thing with you muppets..

It'll not only fly, it's perfectly legal under the Deed!! But it'll never happen...
Go ahead and fling personal insults, that is how some think they win debates/discussions.  It only established the character of the speaker....

Um, isn't $100M about the budget for each team this round?
The discussion was centered around someone giving all that money to a team with a made up yacht club and no country of home grown fans....

Yes, you are right, but the point was who is going to fork over that kind of money to team with no built in fanbase and thus no source of revenue for the advertising dollars...

Ego alone is not a big enough reason?

No wonder these guys are almost unbeatable.! So they use AI to get the simulator smarter and beating the sailors at their own game. Every little mod is tested through simulation and AI to see if it's better or worse. This is so powerful this time around with such a high tech and new design like the AC75, it shortens the learning curve dramatically. Given this is always a game about time with the boats getting better every week this sort of approach gives them a huge advantage if the other teams aren't doing the same?
