Watching the capsize once again I had a thought about a last ditch save. When these boats go over there is a point where the windward foil arm, as it continues to rise with the hull, begins to lose righting moment. Lowering the foil at that point would place it further from the pivot and increase the righting moment. I would be a difficult thing to initiate in a potential capsize but perhaps it could be set up to occur automatically if the boat passes a critical angle of heel. In a marginal situation it could save the capsize and might even save the boat.

The scenery is so beautiful and stunning.Very enjoyable! Reminds me of my trips where I take the good music like the Guns N Roses, Imagine Draongs or the Delta Parole and then enjoy the powerful feeling of the sea. ¡vamos!

It would be nice to see the difference between 'in race' commentary', and commentary added afterwards. I note that comments from my network of 'Professional sailor' friends that none of them mentioned releasing the tension of the leeward backstay to allow the mainsail to flex at the time of the incident, although some have commented afterwards. Has the commentary been 'updated' I wonder? In any case trapping the mainsail does seem to have been an issue, but I am suspicious that this video has been 'up dated' to include such conclusions, as the actual tension on the backstay is rather difficult to deduce... Let us keep this 'real' people - too much 'digital improvement' reduces the credibility.

Great coverage of exciting racing. Did something inside the boat shift and make the hole in American Magic? Watching the video It looks like it's punched out.

Not going well for Luna Rossa, looking at sailing they have lost both races today. It start looking that having two top helmsmen, Bruni and Spithill, it is creating a lack of tactics, especially vs INEOS, once you are ahead of only 7 sec you do tough match race and you cover the opponent, you do not go away and ask mr weather for some luck. Luna Rossa shall make a choice, have only one helmsmen driving the boat and get on board a tactician.

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Such good racing. Why did the Americans tack at the windward mark and not just bear away on port tack? Was it the wind?

23:30 something floating in the water in the foreground. I wonder if that is the piece of the hull that got punched out when she slammed back into the water?
william shepherd
Data on boat performances are good but can you stop the scrolling--just put both rows of data up? and since wind speed and direction are important to the tactical picture, can you please show these details graphically on overhead shots of the course???
Sorry, but this "highlight" selection does not do justice to the sport. Feels like "random shots of the day" to me. At 4:22, we don't get the slightest clue on when and how GBR passed ITA. I am out of this, and will instead watch the individual races. I hope you guys can improve your editing game in the next couple, a 30 min edit of the day would be very welcome, if it would actually include the highlights.

How funny, a wind shift makes it impossible to sail. Why then sail at all? If you can't handle a wind shift you shouldn't have designed stupid machines.

Great highlight package from the race last night. At 22:57 you can see a shot of the boat laying sideways in the water. It lasts a second before they cut away but you can see an air blast on the hull side. This would be air rushing out of that hole. At 24:49 there is a shot of the hull rolling over and you can see CF strapping hanging of the hull bottom. It is just a brief shot but visible.

I liked the coverage format from before Christmas. You could watch a single race....or you could watch a string of single races as you time would permit. Now you have these monstrous 2+ hour bights...that is monstrously long and hard to navigate

For racing where there is no second, there's a huge tolerance for second rate performance on American Magic. Losing the starts and now turning a big lead into a swim. Who's the backup helmsman? Hard to do worse. Also, it's painful to see the primary sponsor not be an American company. Given how poorly the boat is going it seems poetic. Where is Ted Turner when we need him?

US Airbus's Commercial Airplanes division, located in Mobile, Alabama. The site will be the major assembly and delivery site for Airbus commercial aircraft in the United States and will be one of the largest employment centers in the state. - Ted is a legion.!!! - Terry is the skipper & co helmsman.

technology incredible, performance unbelievable, but for me this isnt match racing
Stephen Duquette
It must be really gusty , American Magic looked really good using the wind to the max and then overkill . The boat nearly left the water . Amazing conditions and bad luck for American team . I thought that they were tuning in for the finals against the Brits . It's nice to know that any boat has the capability of taking a race . No runaways just nail biters .

It seems to me that Terry should either take the helm, tactics, or grind. Pick ONE, because heads down in the boat isn’t working for him. Max is on the shore, and it’s working for him.

It's infuriating hearing about a "race track", there is no "follow my leader" as this series has shown. A "race area" yes, but there is no set track in which to travel on, that's the fun of sailing. Please have a word and get them to modify their language, otherwise coverage is exceptional
James Joyce
James Joyce Month ago
@daemn42 aint confussed, its a side of the course relative to the individual boat, meaning the side of their "racing track". Anyway the commentary is secondary to the action, and its thick n fast so far. Enjoy
daemn42 Month ago
@James Joyce I think you may be the only one confused by their language.
James Joyce
James Joyce Month ago
@daemn42 possibly, then a correct term would be rum-line or course made good. naa mate its media sensationalism, not sure this event needs any further lingo. from the leeward mark there ain't no track and its easy to confuse folk; track, maintrack, port tack, sail track say it like it is the wind is producing an advatage to one side of the course. Enough of this clap track, nice to see a 70fter clearing the water like a whale
daemn42 Month ago
I think you're reading way too much into that line. All they were saying was that when all the pressure is one side of the course, the trailing boat can't split at the bottom gates to find better air, and must follow the leader.
Stephen Duquette
Brits have corrected their foil problems that they had in American cup. They are maxing out now .

Oh Good Grief! They abandoned the race because of a WIND SHIFT??? What kind of sailing is THAT? In a real race, the winner is the one that takes best advantage of wind shifts. Then, a wind gust knocks the boat over and it could not right itself. What kind of sailing is that?
TooManyHobbies Month ago
These are professional racing sailers. No excuse for a capsize. The US team is just exhibiting the same kind of failure as our political system, stupid and filled with BS. I wonder if they're as corrupt too? I mean, was the crew chosen by political correctness?

When Ineos did not win in the races before Christmas they no doubt felt free do anything they could to increase the speed, whereas Magic and Luna Rosa felt they only needed minor adjustments to hold on to the advantages they felt they had. Bold choices Ineos. Glad everyone is safe on Magic.
Yikes.....wonder if they missed the runner or it was a mechanical problem....bad timing with the puff😳

That second start of race one, was the best start of the series. And, the comments by the commentator on the final sprint to that start, shows that these new boats are still surprising the media folks. Even the experienced ones! Sir Ben knew what he was doing and timed the start quite well. Not an error. Not really late compared to LRPP.
Patrick Colclough
There's going to be some interesting conversations in the the American camp tonight. They had the fastest boat but lost another race due to poor judgement and sloppy crew. Lucky to escape penalties, calling for a questionable gybe and then failing to release the backstay!

Capsize next, same problem in squall rounding mark with tack instead of jibe! PM EST Sunday

@24:48 you can see the straps of (I assume) carbon fibre already flapping on the exterior of the hull. So the main damage had probably already happened.

Fantastic job to the whole team. As always though there is more data and therefore more analysis to be done. If as it seems there was approx 10% gain pre-Christmas to Prada Cup what gains are still left to execute and new gains from this weekend? Another 10% or less ?

Consider this: Ineos could win every round robin race, so avoiding the semi-finals and lose in the finals to the winner of the semis. I'm a Brit and feel that is a little lop-sided. But Patriot can afford to miss next weekend's racing whilst being repaired and still get up to speed for the semis. Nobody has to win a round robin to be in the semis.
John C
John C Month ago
@Antti Brax What I am saying is don't get too carried away with round robin wins, which I am sure they are not and don't be too despondent about round robin losses. But continuing development and race experience are crucial.

Ineos could also have sandbagged and gone through the semi finals if they had wanted to.

I wonder if the starboard foil got stuck in the up position as the boat started to go over... perhaps it all happened too quickly for any reaction, and of course the unreleased port running backstay did them in.

These boats are useless in light winds, dangerous in high winds, cant deal with a wind shift; gone is the close maneuvering around the start line, gone are the tacking duels. As I've said before. This is a shit show. Worst ever America's cup boat design.
Rob M.
Rob M. Month ago
@Yoda and the Bike Each to their own, I suppose. The fact that the event is happening at all in the current global crisis is a result in itself. The novel concepts being tried and developed are a tech-geeks feast. The racing is not shoulder-to-shoulder close as with conventional boats, to be sure. The speeds involved more or less obviate that for safety's sake, if for no other reason. S**t viewing? Well, Your opinion and I understand it. I'd just point out that a very great number of minors also spectate using this medium and I'm quite frankly uncomfortable with your choice of words, in that context.
Yoda and the Bike
@rusty one And what if that were true, does that invalidate my opinion? I’m a consumer of the product and I’m expressing my view, which is the Americas Cup of today has lost the plot and despite the impressive performance of the AC75, it makes for shit viewing.

I think they'll improve rapidly in all of the areas highlighted. The pace of R&D has already been impressive. Yes, they're extremely expensive, but this is supposed to be a world class event and to suggest that any less investment would be made in the design and development of any style of boat for the purpose of winning the AC is, to be quite frank, bunkum.
santiagobenites Month ago
That was quite the capsize! You don't normally see boats moving sideways in that way, and of course it happened just when you thought that American Magic was going to have a little good fortune come their way.

Well done to Team Ineos for their 4th. Win (4-0) Brilliant. However, THAT looked bloody dangerous for the crew of AM. Make one realise just how fast these boats are sailing then the knockdown. All because that leeward running backstay wasn't loosened!! Tough times for the Yanks!! 3 cheers for the Brits!!

johnber52 Month ago
Since there is no keel..On High wind conditions keeping the foils down until stable maybe the best security.. specially if you have that much lead.. I think they were greedy and got careless!
johnber52 Month ago
@Mike Shiels right..But there is a big difference it is not about the weight only! the foils have wings with flaps which can add variable downward force at will..
Mike Shiels
Mike Shiels Month ago
The foils are weighted, when lifted they provide the righting moment of a traditional keel, only far better due to the leverage. Even with the foil lifted once the main was blocked by the running back stay it was game over.
