What is this (part III) ?

Posted on 18 August 2009 by Valencia Sailing

Well, guess what? We have been able to squeeze some more juice out of the quiz and now have a third part. This time it is definitely much harder guessing the correct solutions and the first reader that identifies all elements will receive free of charge 2 Valencia Sailing t-shirts.

None of the photos we have published has been altered by any way whatsoever (other than adjusting the size of course). They have been shot by an avid reader and friend (amico in Italian) of Valencia Sailing.

    Pierre,

    All of the photos come from Alinghi 5. They detail the mast canting controls, the water ballast controls, the foil positioning, and the engine start/stop. The last one (3) is a "cheat sheet" to give the operator a quick tutorial.

    Oh, it looks the guys on A5 are still "fine tuning" things (the "rigging", to be exact). Some hand notes with the lenght of the forestay and other rig info in upwind/downwind configurations…

    Detailed self-destruct directions to be punched into Cheesy's on-board computer system in the unlikely event the computer becomes "Self Aware"?
