After the rain passes through winds shift to the west.

Forecast is for the wind (currently SW) to clock around W through race time and about 12 to 13k. I don't think the course is setup for that wind direction. It doesn't look good for racing today.

They can set the course in 5 minutes if needed. They should be getting set up in anticipation of the shift. However, they'd want to give it time to really settle in before starting.

Whats hilarious about all this is that if there wasn't all the boat-on-boat action after the start at Mark 1, the kiwis would have very likely been able to finish the race. I think Oracle soaked like 3 or 4 minutes at the top of the course trying to shut the door on the kiwis at Mark 1.

Well, they're launched and headed out to a 2:00 (PT) start. Cross your fingers...

I don't know what my ex's think, but my wife is sitting here watching the replay with me and she thought it sounded like humping.


I'm boatless.

Ready for the replays to become unnecessary. Wind's squared up. No need to draw this out any longer.
