    what a race! ineos win, even with being unable to play the cunningham, so they get the 'immunity pin' no race tomorrow and the italians need to find more speed

    Yes you are allowed to ‘hunt’ in match racing, so bearing down to leeward to seek a penalty is allowed. They just weren’t close enough really.

    this was discussed well on the youtube livecast apparently the rule that any competitor could delay a start ONCE in that series was already there but no one had used it youtube was following the boats coms and we could hear the ineos crew complaining that they were losing hydraulic pressure even when nothing was happening, during the wind delays they traced the issue to a damaged downhaul system so they used their one 15min delay card to isolate the hydraulic leak and manually lock the downhaul in 1 position so prada had an advantage even before the start but made too man

    Do these guys have different rules to normal rules?? UK being on port last leg yet italy seem to alter course to leeward? I always thought you must hold course. Well done team UK. Close racing I have seen might start to get more interest in these yachts now.

    For worst opening sentence for an adventure novel: Adventure Winner "Haul away on those slug guskets, you bilge-scum!" roared the aged captain, leaning wearily against the starboard clog-hutch and watching as the mizzen spittlestoat rose majestically upward until it cuzzled atop the upper spit flukes, and cursing his fate that rum and advancing years compelled him to continually improvise names for the rigging of his own ship but then deciding, with a resigned sigh, that it didn't really matter.

  6. To do an international voyage you must be a registered ship. Doesn't have to be NZ.
