Names familiar from the cup, so I don't think its new, but according to wikipedia they're a large Italian insurer.Who are unipol group? I don't seem to remember them being on the sail before...
Looking quick, nice sails too.
Enigmatically2 was wondering about the battens sticking out of Ineos's clew I believe they were assesing this batten.View attachment 568423
From Ivo Rovira's recon photos I have clipped a visual chronology of the mainsheet evolution.
Arguably around Dec 6 or Dec 8 they may have switched to having the mainsheet ram along the foot.
By Jan 16 they have added a diagonal batten from the tack of the sail to the leech.
It does seem like closing the leech is a pursuit that some of the teams are after.
My guess is some kind of antenna for dataAny ideas about what these two white items are?
