    Doesn't look like a very smooth ride. What's that about?

    This video shows they have more or less mastered sailing in a straight line. Can they tack yet? Been hearing they can't.

    Interesting to know what the wind speed was in these shots. What's the boat's best conditions?

    I am no expert, but the water was quite flat yet the boat looked like it was going for a bumpy ride. Why is this?

    Its all a bit under-whelming. And still wearing crash helmets. Is that a lack of confidence in the boat, or the crew work? Surely they understand the boat by now, its been a year.

    When does the new boat come out of the shed?

    Some shots make the boat look impressive, others it not so much. What is the boat's manoeuvrability like? All the shots are those of sailing in straight lines.

    Interesting comments comparing a boat who's testing on a windless & glass like lake to a boat that's been at sea since day 1. Maybe wait until A5 has got some sea trials in???

    Seeing theese images make wonder why BMW decided to quit F1 before quitting the bunch of losers of BOR. What a waste of money and credit.

    Is it just me or does this movie look like it was shot on a home video recorder.
    What a load of rubbish.
    Watch this video a couple of times then watch the alinghi video. What a difference.

    2:08 PM Norberto you sound like a "cunning professional" that got sacked when the poodles figured out too late that CNEV was really a sham. The AC was never about you or your pal EB's vision.

    The Cup will never be about EB's vision as there is too much to loose for the sailing community to let 1 wacko rule with idiots like you being their slaves.

    If BOR has a look to the Alinghi Parade video, they will be so ashamed they might ask Pierre to withdraw their video.
    Coutts, if everything is of the level of the video, what a laugh.
