Who knows. There were two races today, but no word on NYYC or SA about what the plan was after that. The live feed on SA says see you tomorrow...

The official results on NYYC have also not been updated since yesterday.

Rumor has it that today's results are ....

Canaan 1,1,1
Alpha 2,2,2
Invictus 3,3,4
Orion 4,4,3
PLVI DNS
Aethon DNS

Invictus and Orion finishes are questionable. I copied this from the SA thread.

Well I got all excited about watching this, and have just wasted 46minutes of my life wtching two idiots talk a lot about nothing while filming the back end of their outboard motors going up, down over the waves. Oh yeah, I did see about 3 minutes of sailing in the 46minutes of video.
Even if the footage is not big budget, you`d think they could edit it properly, and show the SAILING.

True, however nobody wins anything until the match racing. Top 2 advance. Maybe the boys from OZ just don't want to chance breaking anything until necessary. That said the Mapleleafs are showing a big advantage downwind.

I was at the skippers meeting yesterday and they where talking about a round robin match race series for the "losers".

Any idea where they are sailing on Sat? Are they still sailing north of the bridge? Anybody got a boat? I'll buy gas and lunch if I can get a ride out to the course.

REALLY? Wow. That was unexpected in the light conditions. Makes me wonder if it was some fluky air that allowed Ashby to catch an advantage or if they were holding back a little this week since Canaan was showing such a firm upperhand downwind for most of the week.

Who owns all the Canadian boats? Are they all owned by Fred? So, even if he loses the racing, does he take home the trophy? Or will Ashby take it home with him? Couldnt they find anyone to race Rocker?

And didnt Steve sell PL to the Canadians prior to the last LAC? Did the Canadians sell it the French team?

Yes, Canaan won by over 3 min. Big advantage downwind again.

Surprising how much each panel moves around when loaded.

Looks like each panel is "puffing" in and out a bit; bust be loosing some energy!

I wish they would have shown a little more of the wing while they were messing with the tweaking controls.

The panels are moving a bit but a hell of a lot less than soft sail would be distorting.

It was going to stay in Canada regardless, that was part of the charter agreement. Or so it was said by the parties involved.

I believe the winner of the I4C is the boat, not the skipper. In this case, since Canaan and Alpha are both Canadian, there's no need for an agreement.
