Re: Is it time to fire the crew?

All this started when they destroyed the first boat. Having a learning curve so steep, if you miss a months worth of training, it really puts a nail in your coffin.

The nose dive was completely due to an excited crew member who raised the foil too early.

The foiling tack was IMHO, too risky, especially when you're ahead. The other mistakes in boat handling are unexcusable at this level. They are a little slower upwind, but boat handling should be better than what it is now.

In hindsight, I don't blame them for pulling the postponement card so early. They fell apart after mark 3. Not exactly the professionalism I expected from such talent.
