Pretty sure he said 'worn' as in, "got a bit worn" rather than warm, as in heated. But he was speaking English and not Kiwi, so I can't be sure.
Ha ha. Yes, the English do talk a lot of bollocks. Maybe by 'heat' he really meant 'eat'? :)

Seems like an advantage to using single braid anywhere is that you can see the wear. It doesn't wear as hard as some other solutions to the same problem, though.

Okay, listened on better speakers, he did say 'worn' not 'warm.' Also mentioned the huge loads on that thing.

Mozzy is right to be focusing also in this area - on all the boats - for the sail shape challenges, the mechanics and such.

Well, there is pretty much fuck all else to focus on right now. But I'm sure he'd welcome your endorsement, Stinger! ;-)
Combined with the recon reports these Mozzy vids have made this cycle one of the most fun so far, let's all endorse the fun and effort.

Him standing chest-deep into an almost-frozen lake to get a good shot of RC boats for the 'Scaling' video was amazing. His video editing skills are great too. But we need to get him a decent Drone, for when the right time comes - the recon teams are prohibited from using them but nothing I can see would prevent him or a partner from deploying one.

edit: there's a Brit who spends some weekends in Mallorca with a decent drone, I have reached out to him about tracking Ineos; he is looking into the possibility.

And I called called out for saying they were not doing well…lol
We did see BA for a very brief moment about 2 weeks ago in Palma, he looked to be 'gingerly' stepping onto the boat. For whatever reason, it is the only few seconds we saw. Think I saw a glimpse of him more recently too in some photo but was not sure it was him in that helmet.

Who knows what has been going on there, especially behind closed doors back at Brackley. That discussion could be what he is more tuned into for now.

Maybe he got hurt in that violent capsize they had…. :sneaky:
