AC35: Which set of foils to use in today's breezier conditions? OTUSA has the day off.

AS ALWAYS, our pre-race forecast is courtesy of the windy.com website. More breeze today, 13 knots gusting to 17 at race time (1400 ADT, 1300 EDT, 1000 PDT). About the same tomorrow but very light on Wednesday, perhaps unraceable. Lower wind limit is 6 knots. Balmy temperatures (23C, 73F) continue all week, day and night. Only three races today, but all are interesting: GBR vs FRA, can Franck Cammas & Co. pull off another win against the struggling Brits? NZL v. SWE, will Artemis be better in more breeze as they were in the pre-regatta practice racing? FRA v. JPN, let's see if either team can improve their foiling stability over the previous two days. OTUSA has the day off having raced three yesterday. RR1 ends with today's racing, assuming all three are completed.

These windy.com forecasts have been spot on since we started looking at them last Wednesday....
