Aparently SA will have instructions posted later this week that will let you know how to watch it without paying $7.

This seems the best place to get live commentary.

All of these feeds were of suspect quality unfortunately. I have 300mbps internet and all of them were buffering constantly and not even on HD.. frown

Hope they get the US video rights sorted and quick.

The last link I provided worked perfectly for me on both FF and Chrome, and definitely in HD. No buffering issues. I was also streaming the Tour at the same time. Both browsers had AdBlock Plus extension enabled. Stealthy disabled.

The AC+ app is crap.

This works perfectly on my PC W/Chrome and ad block+. Can't get full screen and I missed today's events. Will try tomorrow.

Thanks Philip!

The full screen might be an issue with chrome rendering the aspect ratio to 5:4 instead of the native 16:9. I saw it happen with chrome on one of my machines but not on another.

America’s Cup and ISAF reach agreement just ahead of ACWS Portsmouth


'The ISAF jury appeared to be on a crusade to 'save the America’s Cup' and I believe they may have allowed that belief to cloud their judgment.

'In fact, it is interesting to note that around the same time, the President of ISAF was actively discussing moves to try to grab more control over the event.'

'There are many very good people in ISAF that have worked hard and given up a lot to further the interests of the sport. However, the current administration with their politically charged agenda is doing our sport a huge disservice in my view.'

There is none due to licensing rights.

Not really AC related but cool nonetheless.

Here's a question for you designer wannabe's.

As we have been seeing ever since Foiling became a 'Thing', the worst thing that can happen is the dreaded nose-over, pitch pole. As I look at all the foiling boats, from the Phantom all the way up to that 70' Tri above, they all have the main lifting foils mounted at about mid hull, with a T rudder setup in the back. From watching many of these videos, it seams they always start to hobby horse in any type of big swell, and the bows dig in once in a while, often with disastrous results!

Why aren't they putting the main lifting foils further forward, instead of only at amidships? If the would put it way out front, that would stop the teeter-totter effect we see in the swells.

They could make the rear foils bigger and the front foils smaller, to evenly distribute the weight, but it seems to me it would be much more stable if they spread the foil lift to all 4 corners, rather than keeping it right in the middle of the boat and having the nose dive tendencies.
