I believe they had two A's at the SD staging area. Both with wings for design test and or crew training?

Steve Clark posted a note on the Anarchy forum regarding why the original hard wind A failed to thrill against the other A's...something about a problem with how the leading edge on the flap bent off to lee and was consequently way slow. Was corrected on the test rigs at the Oracle camp.
Which raises the question as to why we have not seen hard wing A's springing up all over?

steve clark and his crew are sitting on the upside down hull hugging. They're obviously mentally destroyed. These guys have put years into that boat.

ashby and orion headed upwind - ashby / spithill on the layline with a 20 boat length lead over Canaan.

SA coverage is focusing more on the boat damage at the moment but will probably jump back to the race when the boats are near the bottom of the course again.

looks like patient lady has broken at least the port rudder


Spithill/Ashby rounded the top mark with a healthy lead. They're screaming downwind now with Canaan behind (Magnus Clark).

dang I wish people would quit calling me.

seeing some video now of the boats coming downwind. Canaan now leading ahead of Spithill/Ashby. downwind cross coming.....canaan on the layline...looks like the fleet has tightened up a little.

(sorry if I'm misspelling boat names.s)

1st of 3 laps almost complete...canaan running a little deeper than Alpha (spithill/ashby) and with a 16 boat length lead now.

cannan rounding...looks good, nice and easy. Conditions are VERY choppy and pretty windy. Alpha rounding now about 20 seconds behind. They overstood a little

they were pushing Alpha much harder - they were working hard and driving the bows much harder through the chop.

Alpha Canaan crossed with Canaan's lead down to ONLY 1 BOAT LENGTH! Ashby / Spithill crossed just behind and with the bit in hard in their teeth! That slow tack cost big.

Canaan still has the lead on the layline. Both of these boats have a HUGE lead over the fleet.

Looks like Canaan will maintain their lead at the top of the course...6 boat lengths.

both headed downwind now and canaan running a little lower and slower.

Why can't their camera man keep the camera pointed at the BOATS instead of the clouds and the back of someone's head??
