Sailing 2018 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The Finn replacement is a bit dumb. I doubt ISAF will find a combination where both boats would produce equal performances, it will likely cause one gender to dominate the other.

 

A two boat team race where they add up the two performances would be interesting though.

The Volvo Ocean Race is insanely exciting today, in the last day. Less than 100km away from the finish in Scheveningen (near The Hague) and there's a few hundred meters between Brunel and Mapfre (the two remaining contenders for the win, since Dongfeng chose a completely wrong course overnight).

Dongfeng might in fact have chosen the perfect course. They are hugging the coastlines and have been racing towards the finish with 11-13 km/h faster speeds than the rest, having closed the gap from 85km to 50km in a matter of two hours :yikes:

It's just unbelievable. The single biggest sailing race in the world going to be decided by seconds after 70.000 kilometers of sailing around the world's seas :bowdown:

Dongfeng on their way to make history and take the lead in the last kilometers. This is absolutely incredible, one of the most sensational bits of sports in the last years (as far as sailing can be sensational/spectacular).
