At least Ainslie didn't assault anyone...

No chance Jobson got through this round without reminding us that "they" say you can't match race on multihulls?

Pissing off the boat was a nice touch. Makes him seem human ,like the rest of us.
Be nice if he attacked Jobson, that'd boost some ratings.

Preferably with an axe!
Yesterday Jobson explained that catamarans had two hulls, who knew!?
I would be ok with dumb comments as long as it where correct but most of what he says isnt.

I liked the comment, "His strategy is to sail faster and get out in front."

Again, who knew?

Terry was on the ball steering around that mess, and seemed to stay pretty calm throughout.

Jobson's refusal to call that a pitchpole drove me nuts. We've worked hard and developed this terminology over years and years of catamaran sailing. This was not a "capsize"...it was a "Pitchpole".

The man refuses to assimilate. Can't blame him though multihull racing is just a fad.

Like it or not a very large percentage of the players and commentators still can't stand multihulls, they're just whoring themselves out to make a buck. Jobson and S.A.'s media darling,Genny Tulloch( yeah, she's cute,that's about it) are 2 great examples. I'd venture to guess many of the sailors feel that way also, but you'll never get anyone to admit it until the AC goes back to pig boats, then you'll hear it in truckloads."I really never liked those multihulls, I'm glad we're back in slow ,easy to sail , mono slugs. that cat stuff was too hard."

Well we may as well have fun with a favorite ACWS bloopers string...they did offer a lot of stupid comment humor.

.....At the windward mark, the boat in the lead is rounding while flying a wing, priceless.

Gary, called the gennaker/code zero , the jib multiple times.
Spithill's pitchpole (eehhhh Jake?) befuddled them with GJ saying "he had the wing eased", but in the replays you see the wing go out long after the rudders left the water.
My favorite was no coverage or explanation, ever, of how Spithill gained all that ground with a penalty in Sat. last fleet race and finished second.

Brilliant!!!

Can someone with video editng skills piece together a 2-5 minute string of those gems? I will use it to kick off the Multihull Council meeting in San Fran (as the opening segment in a web-based meeting).

No budget to pay you, but free advertising and pride are available...

The pics I assume you're talking about, Mr brucat. Slide show is in process. I'll get it to you.

Unconfirmed Rumor: Sheet around neck of a crew member at mark rounding. Sheet cut by other crew member, who also cuts his finger. Ensuing capsize due to crew off station. Researching now. Has anyone seen this info published anywhere yet?

No Jeremy, not pics. A video blooper reel featuring as many of the moronic and irritating comments as we can find over the series of the events.

Everything else has been done already.

I read that Cheese was the one who had to be sliced cut free.
As the wing trimmer he would have the highest risk of getting tangled up.
