You are looking at a different video, its total length is 1:15:00 instead of 1:59:49.

A brick improves almost all Apple products. 12ga works nicely too.


I'm boatless.

I thought if you just washed them thoroughly in salt water, it would fix any Apple product? Does it have to be salt water?

ETNZ was doing it in Race 3 - hitting 25 knots upwind.

That video of Oracle though just looked *fast*.

Would be interesting to see the VMG numbers though.

"Unfortunately it was one of those bear aways where out leeward elevator pierced the surface at one stage. Once you lose the effect of that elevator which is basically holding the boat down you are effectively into an old school multihull bow down situation. It happened in an absolute blink of an eye. We have never had it happen before but that time the stars had aligned to give us that finger of God just as we got to the top mark."

When the line-up occurred, I quickly called for our television camera boat to record the unscheduled, impromptu scrimmage.

I'm not familiar with every US news outlet but the general tone about this AC is very cynical, like this item by Gawker:
