The racing was hard to watch. Any ideas as to why Britannia was so poor?

Foils / Rig / Hull / Systems / Technique?

Loose footed main of the Kiwis seems to work really well. They have great control over sail shape. They increase the camber / twist during a tack for acceleration power then quickly flatten it back out.
They also have a finer cord on the bottom of the foil arm, and probably on the foil itself .
Plus the design of the boat means the crews heads are not sticking up into the airflow.

Is it too late for Ben?

Very unlikely there will be another team bankroll by the fracker and if there is , no chance sir Ben will be involved  Unhappy

I think they need to start digging a tunnel so they can escape at half time.

Either that, or their updates really need to work

Whoever thought up these three legged dogs p**ing up a lamppost, need to take a long look in the mirror.

A step change seems to have happened here ....
Maybe the fat lady still has a tune left ...

Review the December race videos and the INEOS tacks/gybes with respect to the foil movement changes, compared to now. Chalk and cheese
