very cool, how does the cost on those compare to the catamarans?

It may be more time before the 45 hits the water. The crane to launch it is not there and with the port labor dispute it can not be delivered. They have been out on the FP18's almost every day.

Jimmy needs Elbow surgery. Probably injured it lifting his balls into bed every evening.

Not sure what to make out from these photos. Looks like a heavily modified AC45, including aero package, completely different rear beam, in-hull grinding station, steering wheel (sans tiller) and other goodies.

Pics here.

Wow...they really moved the mast base aft. It's a couple of feet behind the main beam and the "pod" structure looks more like a structural support for that modification than an aero improvement.

If it was my billions, I'd think SanFran USA, Portland ENG, Sydney AUS should be in the rotation. Obviously the Bermuda location, too

Maybe something in the Trade Wind belt(s)...

They're all predictably windy for a foiler and if the courses are kept reasonably short, the mark roundings should be crowded (which makes for great TV)

No one wants to see a drifter...

Hmm, $300k / year to sail around on an AC72. Not too bad I guess.
