These boats are amazing? They are using aeronautics experts to help in the design.
they've been using this design for the past 5 years

there is a vid from a few years ago on what they did to design these.
these are the only vids I had left in my watch later folder on YouTube sorry.
tech and design
Saw a great movie about this with Mathew Modine and Jennifer Grey about 10 years ago, I think it was called Wind.
We should thank New Zealand for keeping professional sailing alive.
Not sure if you are joking or not, but I loved that movie. It came out in 1992 so it's 25 years old.
team new zealand errr i mean team usa(most of the team is made up of kiwis) looks good on the water today and go up 1-0 in the finals

For those interested, this was a GREAT fucking book, very funny and also fascinating:

Glad I came to WB. I had forgot to record this
A friends facebook post about sailing (he posted that he was sailing to Nantucket on a Reach and only needed a single tack) that I had zero comprehension of what he said...So i read and watched a bunch of youtube videos about sailing...I had NO IDEA that the sails function like a wing...I was still, my whole life, thinking that all sailboats sailed like the square rigged mayflower...Wind pushed you...Nope...They can sail in virtually any direction. I was amazed. I can't believe I didn't know this....
Anyhow he's on his friends boat and the thing is a gem. I would love to retire on a boat like that and just follow the warm weather..
and here is a shot of the boat after the mooring line broke during a little squall known as hurricane Irene..It was not really damaged and was plopped back in by a crane during high tide
That's why I love sailing. Anyone can turn a key and a steering wheel
and pilot a boat. It takes some knowledge and some work to sail.
The upside is the quiet of sailing along with no motor rumbling or
the smell of gas or diesel fuel. It's awesome.
hopefully team usa pulls ff 1 win today but at they look like shit
NBC is broadcasting the race
I blame the kiwis on Team USA sandbagging it for their team. Bastards.
wow this team is sucking ass this weekend
