Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

It seems that the most probable is that you are going to have wind limits 10K lower than the ones of the protocol, at least this statement from the NZ team seems to indicate so:

Emirates Team New Zealand welcomes the finding of the committee reviewing the fatal incident involving the Artemis Racing AC72. The committee’s recommendations were released today in San Francisco.

Managing director Grant Dalton said the team supports the review committee’s recommendations in principle. “They are prudent and reasonable,” he said.

“The committee has done some remarkable work in only six days. The details still have to be worked on but we see nothing that will adversely affect the event.

“We have confidence in our boat – design, engineering and construction – and the sailing and support crews. We have invested a lot of time and money on safety.”


News Story

unless max wind speed is a detail and this is only a strategical move kind of: We agree with everything, there is just a little detail about the max wind speed....
