    Thanks , Paul-great story . Definitely directed at non sailors but well done. A little fast and loose with the Oracle penalty..... This definition was amusing:
    "..foils, which stick down below the waterline like little feet."

    Interesting. Pay attention to what Paul does not say. He's increadibly smart and pretty media savvy. So the way he ducks the laser issue is an example - IE he knows how reliable the data on speeds is. But he only has hearsay as to how that was achieved so he doesn't "know about that"...

    smart brilliant guy. I've learned a lot listening to him over beers after Thursday night races at the CYC Seattle.

    I would say that the cup was won in Ballard

    Thanks again, Corley!

    Are you kidding, Schakel?

    The 'mechanic' in that book is Norbert Bajurin, who is hard to confuse with Joseph Ozanne?

    It is a quirky title, considering the subject.

    Let us know how you liked it, when you've read it.

    ;)

    :eek:

    I don't know which book sounds worse.

    When I want to read something nautical, I always think Patrick O'Brian's books are wonderful.

    I saw the movie Master and Commander written by Patrick O'Brian.
    Great..But we are a bit of-topic...

    In Sailing anarchy I have a discussion about the cavitation that occurs with the foilers of the AC 72's. I propose a foil that is thinner and from a different material then carbon to prevent cavitation. Titanium. But they want to stick to carbon that gives thicker profiles for the same loads. Loads are 10 to 20 tons I heard.
