Re: Artemis back in the water

Man, it will be interesting to watch this. But I seriously doubt whether either AR or LR can even come close to challenging NZ.

I think the Kiwis are walking away with it.

Re: Artemis back in the water

ETNZ is just a faster boat. LR's bow is down when they foil so do not ride out the foil as long. Draper stated they could match speed upwind but I don't see it. Their tacks are slower than ETNZ. Artemis is likely to be slower than LR.

Too bad there is no need for sail handling. Having that variable would make the racing more interesting to watch.
