Scallywag in the VOR earlier today
How many jibs are we looking at there?
Three - masthead code zero, J2 and J3 (I think)
Is there something silvery-grey hiding behind the genoa?
I think they might be mid-peel, ie forehead sail change when you have both up for a moment mid-change - probably peeling from masthead code zero to fractional code zero, both of which would use the same tack point at the end of the bowsprit.
Sneaky efficient fucks
Yeah, bloody show offs when 25 knots downwind with four sails up isn't enough
I like that the pic shows how much lift all that sail upfront generates. Actually reducing displacement for greater speed. Next time round the boats will be foiling I think, like the IMOCA 60s
Does anyone know where you can watch the americas cup series on tele now?
That looks like fun, if you are into fast sailing ...
(I'm more of a motor-sailer, given how heavy "Emoyeni" was when craned onto the low-loader before the re-launch in 2015)
Next AC is in 2021! BT Sports were showing it last year
Ah ok, I thought it was yearly
