What did grinders do on IACC yachts, or any big yacht for that matter? Grinding and ballast is about it, maybe tidy a rope or two and maybe help with a spinnaker douse, unless it was one of those new fangled winched douses they have to grind into the hull.Real issue though is that the grinders are only there to provide some token make-work for a few humans, and the whole shebang would be much better run by electronics batteries and a shore pilot.. So it's a pretty pointless exercise to say the least when the human is taken out of it.
Classic case of doing something because you can rather than you should. Can see this iteration being the last for a while as it's become so pointless - and once you've got over seeing these things whizzing along in nice flat water then it's a yaaaawn.
