  • The idea of a hull as a necessary integral to design is restrictive. What is implied by new developments is an aerial platform using the marine surface to keep the centre of gravity located and balanced.

  • as good as Ineos looked at the prelims they look out of it now and luna rossa has picked up a lot of speed and much better starts and tacks. I hope that NZ is watching and learning something.

    Dan FontaineDan Fontaine21 giorno fa
    • I'm sure NZ was watching and learning. It will be nearly impossible to beat them. I'd be happy if Luna Rossa managed to be a match for NZ. Fingers crossed for a good performance, so the regata won't be boring

      Matteo StoccheroMatteo Stocchero13 giorni fa
    • Dan - the stats of the racing says there is very little between them - either to windward and or downhill, what does seem to shine through is the smoothness of the Luna Rossa yacht - I am taking a punt bit Jimmy Spithill is pretty shrewd at match racing and as credentialled as Ainslie is - its from fleet racing which is entirely different. And without being on the boats it looks like the way the use of two helmsmen is starting to show. Subtle difference is one set of eyes is always out of the yacht - 4 races - 100 hundred minutes of sailing - lots of tack @15 a race+ - and so far not one mistake from Luna Rossa. Very composed sailling.

  • I prefer "Old School" America's Cup. I like to see a full spinnaker going downwind, with sail changes. I hated when they went to catamarans, and now these even more "techy" outrigger foils. I should have seen it coming when they started playing with the keels...

    • I rarely click onto jacht racing videos, but wasn't americas cup always the "f1 of offshore races"? Pushing the limit of sailing? And foiling would be the next step of known wayw to reduce drag. But maybe i am wrong and its a push of them in the last years?

    • @titaoit Not all UK citizens are as you describe so please be careful with your false sweeping statements. Since LR has won 4 races I am seeing the same arrogance by Italian supporters so it looks like it's not unique to UK. In some cases friendly banter has degenerated into insults (by British, Italians and NewZealanders), and I have always reported these to the moderators of the channel where needed. I personally was quick congratulate LR on thier wins despite wanting Ineos to win. Also, your reply is irrelevant to my comment. UK is part of Europe, it's a fact, indeed they were one of the nations that shaped the European Union as well as Europe. Anyway, good luck to both teams in the rest of the races ( Ineos need more of it than LR :) ) and I hope you enjoy them.

    • @smithsway Perhaps you can tell me what those things hanging off the mast are? Could they possibly be sails? And if they are sails, would not the proper phrase for what they are doing is "sailing"? But please, don't be upset. I'm just expressing my opinion.

      WhatAboutTheBeeWhatAboutTheBee20 giorni fa
    • @smithsway The word is "you're" as in "you are", not the possesive "your". You may wish to correct your post. Every post, someone whines that AC "isn't showing the racing I want to see". Fine. Go elsewhere. No one cares the tiniest bit whether you like it or not. 12 meter racing, the staple of AC racing for a very long time, is still active. Perhaps you and others will enjoy that, there. Its simple to change what AC yachts will look like. Just win the Cup and become Defender, so you can decide the rules. That should only take about $100M and a foiling team. Why anyone would toss foiling out after winning and that investment, to go back to antiquarian racing is beyond me.

      WhatAboutTheBeeWhatAboutTheBee20 giorni fa
    • @WhatAboutTheBee "Antiquarian sailing" . Or perhaps he's talking about "sailing" and your talking about something else... foiling. The are both valid but very different. As the Americas Cup is a yacht race there is room for both and he is just voicing an opinion.

  • "Got Away" in the title implies that the UK are in charge and in the lead! In this context that is clearly wrong. This is either bad English or click bait. Probably both. In reality it appears that Ineos just weren't on the top of their game on the day. (As much as I'd like them to be!)

      Simon HughesSimon Hughes21 giorno fa
    • Not even technology, Ineos have 5 time the budget of Luna Rossa and more time to work on the boat after the Round Robin, still money and time didn't sort it out. Italians spended better their less resources and used even better their less time to improve the boat.

Anyway, good luck to both teams in the Match.

    • @Roy Thompson It is an arrogant comment and I would like to Apologize on behalf of the vast majority of my countrymen who are not as toxic as this. However, I would also remark that "you reap what you sow", outside England there is diffuse resentment towards the usually arrogant attitude of Brits, so frustrated people pick that up and take it as excuse to behave horribly

      Cxar71Cxar7121 giorno fa
    • @Christian Fournier you should look on a map. UK is in Europe, it always has been and always will be, but not in the EU. A minority of the country (United Kingdom as a whole, not England) voted in favour of leaving the EU and very quickly realised they had made a mistake.. So don't tell me what my country wants, not even they're know. They are like sheep, or worse, lemmings 😂 And whilst I am British, I live in continental Europe and many of my European friends and family are sad at the loss of UK from the EU. Anyway, back to the racing hopefully on Thursday, let's just try to enjoy that.

      Roy ThompsonRoy Thompson21 giorno fa
    • @Cxar71 & Roy_Thompson = To Cxar, I’m sorry I ruined your joke. But this is a sporting contest, & Brexit is not at its place in it : too serious a matter. Besides, I’m ill at ease with all these Italians already boasting about victory : Ineos could still find a technical device giving them an insuperable superiority in the next regattas (remember AC34). And, even if the match were almost won, it would not be fair to boast overly about victory. There is a quotation which I like ; it is from a French diplomat during the negotiation of the Peace of Utrecht (with the Dutch envoys, which were overly boastful of the Allied military successes) : “On voit que vous n’avez pas l’habitude de vaincre” ! A bit of restraint in celebrations would do no harm ... This said, “Forza Luna Rossa” ! To Roy_Thompson= For centuries, Britain has both been in and out of Europe ; just watch the “Yes Minister” sketch about the EU : it nails it down pat. But now, “the times are a-changing” ; continent-sized blocs are in the making, have been for 3/4 of a century. A country has to choose its bloc, and England has chosen the Anglosphere, for the better or worse. England must live with its choice : the fence is now too wide for straddling! If you feel European, it is a commendable thought ; but your country does not feel the same, and neither do the Continentals : family feelings for an estranged brother are conflicting, but resentment at his departure is the dominating sentiment. ___ .

    • Looked to me someone pushed a button for the flaps when they pulled the wing out. And did it twice so she climbed HARD and left the water, the momentum she shed going airborne had her land even harder, the only way to recover is to pull the sail back and let the air go, otherwise you climb out AND fall over.
