Or if the Kiwi's had accepted one of the alternate flags in that referendum thing, who doesn't want a giant kiwi with laser beams for a flag?Well if you both just accepted your place as colonies of the UK and re-adopted the union flag then you wouldn't have this problem.
They get some sort of display telling them where the marks are.I thought the competitors had a display that comes from the umpires as opposed to what we see on TV?
My recollection is that USA had a choice at that top gate, they chose the mark that led them away from the shore where the commentators thought they should instead head to inshore and so one of them labelled it the 'wrong' mark.Seemed like the digital lines on the course indicated that USA went around the wrong last mark that last race. They started almost talking about it on the commentary. I wonder if they just decided to let it go? Should not have been an extra mark between the 2 actual marks anyway? Or was the digital display wrong?
USA has had flight control problems ever since they switched to the new guy Hans Henken (?) but they finally put some really-great maneuvers together this weekend - even in the heavy air day 1.Nice to see USA finally win a event!
I was also tremendously impressed by the downwind speeds on day 1, most of the boats were doing a steady 90kmh in the gusts.
Oh wow, missed that.
