It could be a relay with pass the baton, combined elapsed times, separate races with points, who knows. And if the relay does the slow boat go first or the fast? Or maybe there's a choice? Once you've decided to invent a new format who knows what will go on...

Are you suggesting the forum tone should reject standard cynicism and favour an optimistic outlook that the televisual entity won't just look like grandpas in neoprene with inappropriately dressed "glamorous assistants" in the new girlie boat?

The red wetsuit is OK, but the boots won't give much grip.

The weight of the frame will bring her up to 90 kgs.
Don't want to cause any controversy, but, the only sensible route is PY, Great lakes version, or Olympic style.

good luck with that ;-) most sailors don't understand it, never mind Josephine Public.  And those sailors who do finally "get it" (Graeme's not there yet, bless), either accept it for it is or call it out for being a sh*te way to run competitive racing.

EPS, would have worked well.
Talking sailors weight and boat PY, plus marks from a judging panel, we can all see when a boat is sailed well,pick up the wind shifts, faster route to the mark.
