Lol I said I would leave if you could find where I had written what you accused me of

i simply offered you the choice to do the same should you prove unable.

a friendly wager? Some skin in the game As it were

strangely you seem rather reluctant To take up my offer.
And like I said, get your facts right before you troll.
You're simply deflecting, using the Donald Trump defence.
You got it wrong. Own it.
Now piss off troll.

The video segment of the boat being towed straight forward on its side for a time surprised me a little but maybe that’s a normal part of righting the boat?
From sailworld (Justin Chisholm)
"
With the two sailors in the windward pod perched above the water, the two leeward crew were easily able to swim or climb free, Meanwhile, the chase boat crews were quickly into action. With the boat sitting comfortably on its side with the mast horizontal(courtesy of an inflated buoyancy bag sitting in between the sail skins at the top of the mainsail a tow line attached to a canvas sling was passed to the upper pod sailors who appeared to attach it somewhere at the front of the cockpit.

However this approach did not appear to work and instead the tow line was attached to the bow for the boat to be towed head to wind and then righted.!

impractical sure, but not impossible.

Putting the boat on it's side is also impractical.
True, but this does seem to be a one-off due to foil arm issues so questionable as to whether it would be worth it. And this was not too destructive. So far preferable to Icarus impressions.

I did note that while on its side, a very large percentage of the hull was above water. I am thinking that the spaces "below deck" may be sealed up pretty good. Hopefully nothing sensitive got wet.

Am guessing that with how instrumented the boat is, that the mast will get a thorough look into, too. Will be interesting to see how soon they make it back out. Best wishes to them, they're a little on the back foot sailing time wise.

Have we seen BA on the boat yet?

Own your shit. Everyone else here does. You claim to need the approval of everyone else here, they own their shit, you're the only one who doesn't.
I can’t own something that I didnt say,

if I had said what you alleged then you would have found it and I would have left.

while we are at it find the post where I stated “I need the approval of everyone here”

see it’s easy, you have two chances for you to get rid of me 😘

You can run from your comments all you like.
I don't care whether you leave or not. I don't care what you do. Leave, stay, who gives a shit.
But I didn't mention you, you came at me, and you fucked up. And you got it wrong.
Deflect and deny seems to be your M.O.
So I'm done with you
Bye Felicia.

You will be pleased to know 4 has seemingly Nuked himself or blocked me so no more bickering

and no sign of the French, given the hysteria at Ineos for their lack of water time, I’m wondering why the same isn’t being aimed at the French?
