Come off it... we were all writing them off.... and I'm not afraid to admit it. Couldn't be more pleased that I got it wrong. I guess one thing has changed - the weather.What a turn around - but it was expected, they have a very technical boat and have simply got it sorted out now!
I didn’t write them off. They have won twice now in a light breeze. New foils fixed them. Better control of the nose.Come off it... we were all writing them off.... and I'm not afraid to admit it. Couldn't be more pleased that I got it wrong. I guess one thing has changed - the weather.
It is an amazing spectacle and I love watching it. I would prefer to be there watching it live! Any excuse to be in NZ.
Being an old fuddy, I am still prone to say I'm not sure it's yacht racing as I prefer to see it with computerised technology a far too decisive factor. However, this is the formula one of sailing and is a long way from my sailing experiences. God I'm defending the past already!
Wonderful and very interesting to see how the Kiwi boat responds to the increased performance of the challengers. Thanks for the updates Luke
Too right I don't see many of these craft in Axmouth , the closest to these I have gotten to this is windsurf foiling , yes I'm a winsurfer not a sailor. The America's cup/ Prada cup is something special, some of the concepts cross over in design , so I always keep an eye out.this is the formula one of sailing

They wont waste their time worrying - they will be watching very closely, and working really hard. Though they will still appear very friendly, relaxed and humble, to the uninitiated.. They will be quietly sharpening their swords , balancing every arrow and aligning every feather of every flight.. so not one arrow will be wasted..Great effort from team USA but looks out of it? Italy UK final should be cracking. Wonder if the Kiwis are the least bit worried?
