    Default Team NZ copy McDonalds Advert Maybe ??

    Its funny how some of the "Silly" things in TV come to real life.

    While many don't watch the ads on TV, the McDonalds one about the kid and the sail boat looks to be replicated.

    The Ad in case not seen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKyPQJeYUY4

    Now this morning on Stuff americas-cup-start-of-the-match-was-already-under-threat-now-teams-maximise-delay

    The Wording in particular
    Team New Zealand have worked hard to improve their light airs performance and their latest innovation sees them trialling a lightweight modified Code Zero that has already raised eyebrows after it was revealed late in their development program to try to deny Luna Rossa a chance to replicate it.

    The giant sail appears able to be carried upwind and then unfurled for the downwind legs, used in conjunction with a jib.
    Interesting

    "The teams are able to train under Level 3 and the wind forecast through to Friday looks ideal, covering the broad spectrum of the racing limits of 67.5 knots to 21 knots."

    Be a bit tricky in that wind range

    They will really be flying in 67.5 Knots, not so much in only 21 knots

    Yeah me thinks someone got the decimal point in the wrong place, (when watching on TV ) they said 6.5 was the lower Limit. There are rumors that NZ in practice have cracked the 50 Knot mark, thats almost 100 KPH on water
