the online website for NBC Sports Network is streaming it - I watched just a little of it before having to get back to work. You have to login with your network TV provider info that gives you access to it.

I've definitely been out in stuff I probably shouldn't have been out in, limped to the lee of an island, dropped sail, and sailed back under mast alone (doing 11 knots). I also Had it out in a distance race a few weeks ago and the wind changed dramatically and started gusting to the upper 20s...and I was on a long a reach wishing like hell the guy ahead of me in 1st place would get off the trapeze so I could justify getting off the trapeze ;-) (definitely found a condition where a pre-foiling DNA with curved boards has an advantage over a straight board A-cat!).



MN3, I'll reply to you directly privately (assuming messaging works here) to keep this thread on topic.

JPN beats SWE. They're saying GBR is done for the day, but Kenny believes that NZL needs to at least start the second race.

Bit strange that the 2nd race BAR vs ETNZ will continue without BAR.

All NZ had to do was start.

Must be tough for Ben. Problems in the round robins, problems in light air, he's involved in pre-start crash, and then first day of playoffs his boat breaks the wing and team is handed two losses with out completing a race, then, then, . . you have to sit through a live interview, . . . WITH . . . . YOUR . . . . . WIFE! smile

Good thing I'm not a conspiracy theorist, otherwise I may be tempted to think this is all just part of the show...

Heads UP regarding today and this week's US broadcast.

NBCSN will be broadcasting to the "NBC Sports App" today, Wednesday, and Thurday. I interpret this to mean that there will be no broadcast through your cable, Uverse, dish, etc. provider. You will need to use a streaming app (Roku, FireTV, Nexus Player, web player, Playstation Vue, NBCSN app, etc.). You should also be able to open a browser and go to http://www.nbcsports.com/ and login with your provider username and password. Then you will get exactly the same feed as the broadcast. I've been using this also and it works fine. Again, I believe this to be accurate but you're on your own so be prepared.

Also, America's Cup app for Android and Iphone.

and

BT Sports live feed

BAR sailed 47.5 knots in practice this morning. With winds building should be an exciting day. Will the 50 knot threshold be shattered?
