New news cycle this morning is claiming that Oracle was cheating in their win over NZ in the last cup because they were "pumping" the main in and out effectively flapping it and making the boat go faster.
Does anyone in their RIGHT mind think that A) you could physically flap this gigantic wing fast enough, with human power, to improve the boat speed, and B) that you could do it and take advantage of it at 40 knots? That's ridiculous! Imagine if you tried to flap your Formula 18 sail while moving at full speed. That won't do anything but slow you down and we're barely capable of going over 15.http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/...udio/bruce-knecht-larry-williams-oracle/http://www.newshub.co.nz/sport/clai...in-americas-cup-2016030411#axzz41w96SPA0
