Manual periscope as a backup?I do wonder how long those cameras on the Stantions are going to last. In general I do question the dependence on cameras for views outside. Not only do they have to be 100% waterproof and reliable, but they will be a drain on power. If there are any issues with the solar panels or charging system then surely they will be the first thing to be turned off.
Like it! Proper submarine style with fold down handles. Will probably feel like he is in a submarine half the time!!Manual periscope as a backup?

Working here for me now, must have been the thousands of SA geeks rushing to download the model just as it was announced here! Actually a pretty good model for being done in a arch viz program but I hope Hugo Boss isn't really using this model for real NA.It works for me (chrome on mac os)
Hopefully they're for a live internet feed so we can sit on our couches and criticize his sail trim!You can see all the telltales from the cockpit through the windows. Cameras are more like for keeping eye on from the bed. Or during the night because I don't see any integrated light on deck.
On his tour video he does suggest the cameras are also there for streaming / publishing video during the race.Hopefully they're for a live internet feed so we can sit on our couches and criticize his sail trim!
