Mixed reports:
"The original forecast called for winds of 10 to 15 knots with clouds increasing throughout the afternoon. But Regatta Director Iain Murray says the wind is already building.

Its getting windier than that on racecourse. Already its blowing 15-18 knots at Anita Rock, in the sheltered part of San Francisco Bay, and more than that on Treasure Island, said Murray."

the decision to foil upwind is one that was taken very late in the Oracle campaign, but now they are learning fast and can out perform the Kiwis uphill. I'm also hearing that you sail these boats as if they have distinct gears rather than a sliding scale of performance for a given true wind angle. In other words you can't trade a couple of degrees for a few knots it's either pop it up or sail in displacement mode. Typically two of these gears might be 22knots boat speed at 40 degrees true or 30knots boat speed at 48 degrees true, the latter being the filing gear.

We saw a hint of this yesterday when they went a bit too quick and saw the speed peak at 37 knots

I'd bet Oracle wins the first race.

I think ETNZ might do better in the light stuff, hulls seem to sit on the water a bit more.

That doesn't make for very good TV now does it?

Android App isn't working right, either. What are the chances we're overwhelming the system?

I'm up. Had to find the video with Stealthy disengaged, engage it, click the link, then click Stealthy off immediately.

I am getting some lag though.

Displacement mode. **yawn**

Kiwis just really pulling away now, Oracle made the mistake of sailing too low and maybe their Code-0 is too flat?
