Exactly. In just two legs. There was plenty of time to be found on the course. Unless everything you do is perfect, the ratings are mathematically perfect, and your competition is perfect, there's always a couple of minutes to be found. Most of the M32 races had 4+ minutes from first to last, and most of them had multiple pros, olympians, and world champs aboard their one-design boats.Exactly. Shitload of time.We put a stopwatch on Soozal when she'd get to the top mark. The delta from one rounding to the next often went up or down by 90+ seconds.Not really between the fleet. It's about as big an expanse as the Grand Canyon when you are talking about the second place boat. Greater than 15 to 30 seconds delta is pretty damn big.Not really if you do the numbers. We left a lot more than that on the course during some races. Shit, if the lifelines were more comfortable, we could have made up a lot of that in just hiking harder.Two to three minutes? That's a shit load of time to try and find on the course.And what I said was that if the A40 was completely sorted and had the tuning time, fairing job, and maybe Robbie Haines on tactics, we could have easily found another two or three minutes on the course, which would be more than the average time we lost to Soozal by.
3 out of 3 of the last three years SBRW has been decided on one race. 2 out of the 3 the race had a delta of 0:02.
