Crazy people are often good at hiding it. Don't think you can always tell right away.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Does any know if they got the boat back for Hawaii? If so, how did the return trip go?

Like Andrew alluded to, "clearly crazy" won't work. Remember, little crazy on land makes for lot of crazy offshore.

A little dab will do ya

Have I missed anything?
I heard Oracle's improvement was mainly due to what they learned reading this thread.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Julie, how strange. You just can't believe these rumours. Why, I heard one directly from an Oracle crew that they were told if they couldn't do any better after the fifth loss, that two of them would be pulled at random and replaced with two from Aquarius! And you can, that changed their entire demeanor.

Of course that's all probably a scurrilous lie, but you'll notice the AC boats were built with no autopilot, no water tanks, and no spinnaker, to ensure they didn't have those kind of problems?

It's more likely that (a) the skipper and tactician were Australian and (b) there were hardly any Americans on board...

...(ducks for cover)..

What's the big deal. The Stanley cup as been one by American, Czechs, Russians and oh yes Canadians. The NBA has internationals on every team. MLB , Americans pasttime has South Americans, venezualians, Panamanians, Japanese etc.

Why all the consternation of Aussies or NZ. On Oracle, Team NZ shared info wh the Austrailia,and the Italians.

If you want to watch nationalistic teams watch the Olympics,
If you want to watch nanny safe races watch the Olympics.
If you want to watch everyone with exactly the same boat, watch the Olympics

AC is about cutting edge technology, pushing limits and the limit, corporate sponsorship which crosses nations borders.

It made for ooe exciting series, even though the Nannys on here tried to get it stopped before t started and even though some s vendetta ain't Ellison ads hem route for Oenone from another team and country.

Watch the Olympics for the best sailor. Watch AC for the best sailors and the bet technology has to offer. Cutting edge has its risks.

Oracle was impressive in its learning curve and dptatation. They just kept getting better...NZ CID the kopposite
