  • RT @KateLaven: Sorry I've been advised not to talk to you said the Royal Yacht Squadron when I checked their 'no women' membership policy #
  • No yellow lines, but great stuff for fans . RT @OffshoreAcademy: @GoodchildSam's multi-tasking – racing & filming : http://bit.ly/qoEyKx #
  • Even people who were at the #ACWSCascais press conference published the 'official quotes' from the press statement verbatim. Why even go? #
  • @34thAC Confused on your hashtags. is #acworldseries preferred over #acwscascais ? in reply to 34thAC #
  • Seems practicing against the best sailors in the #EXSS works RT @34thAC: @EmiratesTeamNZ crushes first practice race by over a minute! #ACWS #
  • It doesn't matter if #exss or #acws did ok today. Both were up against England v Wales in the rugby = who cares. #
  • Not too sure about this #ACWSCascais speed trial thing so far 1 at a time is not that exciting. None of the graphics either. #
  • #EXSS feed is showing 333 viewers (nice transparency) . Wonder what the #ACWSCascais number is. #
  • The #ACWSCascais Speed trial would be better with some F1 style timing and scoring. Would be good to see time versus previous and best… #
  • @Geo_Gephart thanks for the #ff – glad you enjoy the tweets. in reply to Geo_Gephart #
