Technical gremlins from the INEOS boat on the first day but they did complete races on day two.

It's more like "Lowflying" rather than sailing.

I have to say the fast cut editing of that film made it unwatchable for me. It gave me a headache.

The racing isn't very close or dramatic. Inious boat very slow compared to the others. Hope they can find something in the next couple of weeks.
One of my best pals went to the USA as the second engineer on the De Savory America’s Cup Team. He never came back, as he met an American girl and got married. We are still in monthly contact. It was very exciting at the time but they were not successful.
First days racing in the Prada Cup which will decide who goes up against the New Zealanders to compete for the Cup itself.

I watched this Americas Cup Rigs and Remedies Comments form the boss of North Sails were surprisingly positive about Team Ineos and their problems. Fascinating insight into control of the sail (foil) shape and form
I think Canal+ has coverage in France, based on info from here https://www.americascup.com/how-to-watch
Great result today from Ben and the Ineos team. It sounds like they changed most of the boat but it seems to have worked.
On track for challenging the Kiwis.
Incredible technology but is it sailing? Interesting comments from North Sail boss about the possibility of adjusting wing sails shapes versus reefing in heavy winds being fed back to conventional yachts.
I dont subscribe to Chanel+ but just watched the rces on youtube.
Great start however I am not sure that is a good light wind tests.
