I got a six-pack of Beer or Soda for Ya, if you can stay within a few hundred yards ofktouhey wrote:I'm soooo coming down to race if that happens Chris!
We know the ac45's will be the fastest, but this is not a race about the fastest this is Mad Max on the water, people impaling themselves on cats, capsizes, wrecks, crazy tides and winds, and that's before the race even starts.Bille wrote: You don't need to win, just (kinda sorta) Stay with an AC-45 over the entire course
and i'll Pay-Pal you the money for a six-pack, (not to exceed $15 ).
There's no question the ac45 is the fastest sailboat racing class ever built. Multihulls are much faster than single hull sailboats even 49ers, and it's the fastest multihull class ever built. When you spend $2 million for a 45 foot sailboat if it's not fast, you might want your money back.Peter_Frank wrote:But are the new AC45 outperforming everything else in normal 10 knots wind now ?
u know what i mean al, right before the second bridge the wind drops and all the kites go in the drink, and a lot of the guys end up body dragging towards the finish, or until they get a puff of air. They are always first too, so it's funny to see the 49ers finally catch up and pass them because they can't relaunch.Al-Kite-A wrote:FYI - Never seen anyone swim for the "finish" on the B2B. Swim for a boat, beer or land, never the finish
I was sure I saw a 49er finish in the top 10 last year, I must have been mistaken. Those aussie 18's look like they are pretty hairy to ride always on the edge with those enormous wings on the side.experienced1 wrote:actually, the 49ers haven't raced in the B2B for several years now. They were replaced by the aussie 18 skiffs
