Each and every team knows how accurate the judging software is and how it is used to their advantage or disadvantage. If GBR was clear ahead the umpire system would have shown it and any protest would have been green flagged.

Something to consider ...... the boats are travelling about 1 boat length per second (50 ft/sec) it doesn't take very long to show a big crossing gap, especially after AUS turns away at the last second.

RG’s take on it
Haven't seen it, but maybe this has been answered already..
Didn't TeamGB actually screw up by gybing a bit early? This is the point at which they go, they are aiming at the 'committee boat' end (left here) and almost too high for it. The 'pin' end looks much closer upwind/ladder rungs and their initial course out of the gybe is way too high.

Soooooo, wo made the call to take before the finish downwind layline, (or was it wind chasing)? delaying the gybe till the pin end layline could have taken the potential crossing out of it if team AUS went first?

Over there
Wasn't the forecast for Plymouth a week prior to the event 20+? How'd that turn out...

Can you tell us where the most snow will fall this winter and when?

So how does all the skipper shuffling work? Do the Swiss reach out to Nate? Does Nate put an ad on a Swiss website? Or does Wuss say, here's the line up for the next really big show.

Offshore.
Nath was coach for the swiss team in Plymouth, presumedly that lead to the offer to skipper the boat, I bit like the Phil/Jordi setup (originally Jordi was supposed to take over much earlier if I remember correctly, but Phil did well in the opening events so they kept him driving for longer)
