Is BMWO wider? Cam Lewis keeps saying that, but I thought both boats were 90' x 90' ?

BMWO is carrying their gennaker hoisted but furled and draging the sheets through the water and still faster.

Looks wider to me too. Think just the waterline matters in rules?

the rules say 90 x 90 static water line. Actually alingh true lwl is 101ft and BMWO 130ft, BMWO is 90ft wide, Alinghi somewhat less, two tennis courts. You can see it if you look from top. But now that's history. I hope this protest is nothing serious.

Another 5+ minute butt-kicking, wow.

I had hoped it would be closer with more crosses, tighter racing, etc. But you cannot deny how much faster and more stable BMWO was, although Alinghi did look much better today, still a lot of snake-wake on the downwinds vs. BMWO who looke to be on rails.

Protest does not really matter that much I think. This is going to the courts anyway methinks.

Question is what will AC34 look like now that Larry have won.

Last I heard Larry wants to do it on San Fransico Bay, have not heard what type of boats, but SF Bay is known for high winds and I'm not sure his wing mast will fit under the bridge, so I doubt it will be on Dogzilla, although I would love to see that thing go in 20 knots of breeze!

West River Sailing gets a plug by Jobson. He said he wanted to come race an A at west river.Sounds like he has seen the error of his ways.

Pretty awesome first leg! *Yawn* for the rest though.

Doesn't look like either of these boat could handle much rougher water though. Hard to tell what the sea state was just because of the massive size of the boat throwing off perpective, but BMWO was really twisting, and Alinghi was really pitching going to weather. Makes me wonder how long they'd last in much more wind.

Tim, do you still have the Jobson link? He and Smyth did a great job on ESPN360. We should all send a thank you.

All F18s now being offered with an optional wing upgrade package... if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it. shocked
