ETNZ AC72 Launch
Extreme rocker at the bow a la Exploder F18 and recently the Cirrus R. These lines weren´t clear on land. I remember seeing a downwind video of an F18 going intense pitch motion with a similar shape, this is another ball game, another scale but for SF I would play safe as speed will be there on conditions only. Remember how I didn´t like Alinghi 5 bow, and it showed at Valencia with some scary pitchs, although waves at SF will be different.
But I also thought the same for USA new amas and the AC45 and they worked quite well.
We'll whichever the case, the lines look extreme.
Check Pete Melvin (curently in NZ) Q&A by Jeremy Leonard at SailRevolution.com done while assembling the beast.
Also daggers now visible, straight ones at this time, they have 10 choices through the entire campaign.
