Our genius (Todd Harris) is quoted:
regarding Ben Ainsley . . . "He's got a nice grip. . . ah . . . there on the tiller . . . holding on to it!"

BRILLIANT

When Harris was interviewing Coutts, Coutts says "you have to read the wind"

Harris replies "isn't the wind invisible?"

How many times did you hear Gary Johnson saying the lead boat's strategy should be to cover the 2nd place boat only to have the two split for opposite sides of the course at the mark rounding.

I've always seen covering as a boring mono-slug strategy.

Mitch Booth said it right, you start worrying about the boat behind you, you'll lose every time.

You mean it's not invisible? That explains where I've been going wrong all these years...
