Timbo and a flip-phone, you're kidding right? He doesn't go for that new fangled techno weenie crap his phone is the the size of a suitcase and whenever he gets a call he loves saying... go go gadget phone!

Timmy you knew it was coming...

Not with only a slow 3G connection. I'll be outdoors, no internet, at a pool, watching a swim meet, in Lakeland (leaving here in about 30 minutes, won't be home until after 8pm).

And for Ding, you'll be shocked to know I've got an HTC EVO 4G phone, but it's too slow for watching You Tube, with only 3G service.

Maybe Lakeland's got 4G service? Sebring sure doesn't!

Can we get back to talking about why the USA cannot produce enough top talent to put 11 Americans on an American AC boat? There are very few Americans on either boat, what about one on each? Team NZ has so much talent they are driving BOTH BOATS!

The NZ's (and most everyone else) kicked our kid's buttocks last week in the 45 footers too.

Where is the USA sailing talent?

Are they all sitting at home on Facebook?

They left the Utube feed on in the US for the weekend when people are home and can watch it on TV but took it off during the week when everyone is at work. Go figure.

We don't speak funny enough.

Why am I seeing a replay? (The NBCSN app for iPad works pretty good and is supposed to be streaming....or, maybe that's why I'm seeing a replay.


edit; duh. Starts at 4:15. I didn't get much sleep.

Oracle looked dominant on that start...they didn't get a great start but went right over the top of NZ. Impressive. Stretched a little downwind.

it would make sense if they started putting the distance line between the two as time instead of "distance". As they go from 40 knots downwind to 24 knots upwind, it's physics that the distance shrinks by half as the boat speed drops off.

Not sure what JK called there, foiling tack seemed like a slow maneuver IMO.
