Today was a trial day - official practice for all PRO, mark teams as well as the sailors. The Paddock is a decent run from the main marinas and the city - 10 NM aprox. Even in non peak it is getting on for an hour drive by car.
I got a nice spot 10 mins away from my office.

I like course E :)

In that distant post above, you should be able to make out the progressive twist on the 134m sq Jib1, the slot effect derived from it, the resulting RM progression given the foil cant and flap attack angle, and the reason for that idiot’s choice to suddenly tack even though it was into a freaking header.. we are counting on you! 
Easy...   twist is one pixel,  there is no slot,  foil cant is below one sea pixel...  Howzat?

They all looked like they were enjoying themselves out there getting together at long last - well, except for Britannia II :)
