SAN FRANCISO (#1236) — Finally, a video from INEOS Team UK showing their AC75 BRITANNIA completing a dry tack (staying foil borne), below. Interesting to note the happy response from the support team, so it's a safe assumption this is a fairly new occurrence. Still no video from Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli. NYYC American Magic is out of action while they move to their winter training base in Pensacola. A bit of video from the Kiwis, but no foiling tacks or jibes shown. Crickets from LBYC's Stars+Stripes Team USA. That's about it for AC36 news. Lots of rumors, but not yet ready for airing.
So no TFE LIVE today as your Ed. is flying up to Seattle this (Friday) afternoon for this weekend's USA National Sailing Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for the Class of 2019. We'll return on Tuesday at our usual time (1300 Pacific), unless, of course, there is breaking news in the meantime or something special to report from Seattle.
