Pitch Poles and Duct Tape

What an exciting day on the water for the Americas Cup.  First we saw the hi tech boat from Team Artemis starting the second race with some duct tape holding bits of trim in place.  Glad to see that even the most advanced engineering needs some low level help sometimes.

Then we saw the spectacular pitch pole of the Kiwi team at the start.  Thankfully the crew are all safe and recovered and in the words of Ben Ainslee it made great TV.  Some pictures below.
