North Sails VOR Debrief

Intressant läsning om erfarenheterna från förra Volvo Ocean Race. Både kring hur “triple headed” ersatt A3 och nya J0.

What happened is, the sailors figured out a way to sail the boat completely differently from the way anyone imagined. That’s where creative sailors always win. And even though it was an option they all wanted, they essentially made a new sail obsolete just by figuring out a better way to race the boat faster with the rest of the sails. And that technique and thinking is going to trickle down through other fleets too.
