Fantastic answer.

Any displacement mode monohull would be good. Today’s race showed how unequal these boats can sail when they one gets into the high teens and the other is doing 2 knots. Technologically brilliant but I’d like to see some actual match racing. 

I presume the races would be in the Solent but a boat to sail that water have differ requirements. 

Hopefully we’re not get ahead of ourselves

The decision to keep Giles S off the grinders has really paid off so far as they hunt for shifts yesterday and wind today.  These three races have been won by heads out sailing and impressive team work.  Hope they can keep up the tec race on Rita to take things further.

I dont think there is any evidence for sandbagging. And even if there was - does anyone really care? Its all part of the AC drama anyway. 
Lets not pin too much on the results of just 1 day. Lets see what tomorrow brings. 
Rooting for Ben and the team what ever happens.


I assumed that was a sack containing something smelly.

But I have to admit communication on the boat seemed much more calm than at Christmas.

Great turn around particularly as they had a smaller jib. They still have to show what they can do when it’s light. Watched both races now, fantastic boats but not very interesting after the start, the commentators sounded bored, not sure what they are going say going forward now the ‘wow, different boat... ‘ is done

Speed picked up now they appear to have got rid of that annoying nodding.
