They're off on the first leg. Both Mapfre and Brunel ie Tuke and Burling copped penalties for giving insufficient room to Dongfeng at a turning point. Oops

Good to see the 360 penalty, Bekking got himself in a right pickle doing his one.

 

The start looked like absolute chaos when they played dodgems through the spectators...

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

What's the 2 poles used for?

 

One looks to be polling the headsail out to leeward, that's a little weird but OK. The other anyone?

I know the question's been answered a while back, but there's some good footage here showing the aft pole in use with the A3...
