I was at the mall last night, and this literally stopped me in my tracks: A large poster advertising Prada Luna Rossa cologne (for men). On the poster was one of their AC boats (I think the 72), and a Marlboro Man looking sailor (or model). No space suit.

I didn't waste my time smelling (or money buying) it, but now I'm wishing I had taken a picture to post here.

Was there an Oracle cologne too? - ode de Ellison?
was there equal shelf space? If not, i think it is unfair advantage and should be contested

“The safety management plan we’ve requested from the teams includes a playbook on how they race their boats, how they go around marks, the systems they have to set and control, the speeds required to maneuver… basically, how they manage their boat around the racecourse,”

"Currently with the Defenders able to conduct in-house racing - Defence Trials or otherwise, on the America's Cup Course, they are able to cross-reference their performance data against that already available on the Challengers. Their additional advantage is that they can sail just before or after the Challengers, so get a better bearing on the actual conditions on the day - even though the winds may change in strength or direction.

Another implication of the claim is that the Defenders are able to conduct a closed race session on the America's Cup course, while the Challengers are obliged to conduct an open session in terms of the performance data."


NZ want access to Oracle's speed data

I'm a little behind watching this broadcast...but some thought provoking action today. NZ had their jib break (halyard or zipper busted...something)...after some wrangling, they released the jib off the boat, their chase boat pounced on it to collect it and LR had to tack away to avoid the chase boat. Should that be a penalty? (I think so...at least a simple foul).

It's a big A-cat now!

It's hard to tell how much they're loosing downwind without the jib...but NZ is in some big breeze and the lack of a jib hasn't cost them anything yet. NZ running at over 38 knots while LR is running in the low 30's.

NZ is still foiling all the way through their gybes and making 5 knots better than LR. I hope Oracle has something for this...NZ sure looks good....and I'm wondering if we'll see jibs in the future.

Has there been any training/testing without jibs?

I'm not sure but it sure seems that should have been a penalty of some sort.

I think the chase boat was keeping Prada from running over the sail, which would not have been good for Prada. When you sail around a capsized boat or a boat stuck on the mark do you protest them for being in the way?
