Do I read correctly in the new rules that they are limited to two soft sails so the wing is dead. If so how long to build a mast and sail and get back on the water?

Soft sails = jib and gennaker.

Wing is not dead.

If you're referring to the dude up on the jib luff, that's not unusual for big boats. Of course, having the cajones to do that on a 72 after last week puts him in a whole different league...

I loathe and despise the New Zealanders.

****ing can't stand their "we've got everything figured out attitude."

I seriously want to punch Dalton in his ****ing smug butt face.

Likewise, I am pretty sure most Kiwis find it difficult to put up with yanks with verbal diarrhea.

Just watched this on the big screen in 1080p. Check it out. (mark :30 to 1:05) Amazing cinematography, incredible image stabilization, and all from a chase boat. Anybody know why the white helmet? At one point Newton is wearing it, then you see Falcone wearing it. Does the orange colored jersey designate anything?

Bucket list:
1) experience space travel
2) a ride on this beauty

Not reacting to your post Tad, just pointing out that 8 of the Oracle crew members are NZ.

I meant the team - I guess specifically - Dalton.

Love them or hate them, you can't deny that their program is very impressive for such a small country.

Oracle will have to really get things together to be able to beat them, 2nd boat isn't as smooth as I hoped it would be.

Gilberto Nobili has two dream jobs at once
"the team analyzes data culled from more than 300 onboard sensors and sends real-time, job-specific information to each of the 11 crew members via PDAs worn wristwatch-style."

I think it's way too early to start the who's ahead and who's behind stuff. First the Kiwis have to win the LV. I wouldn't take the Italians lightly. The latest videos I've seen shows US17 doing just fine. Like AC 33, we will learn much when the horn sounds.


Have Fun
