Screen Shot 2016-03-04 at 1.46.20 PMSharp-eyed mothie Joe Turner pulled a screen grab from yesterday’s Oracle capsize, and look what he found: A mystery!

Said Tom Slingsby:  Gotta say I am enjoying reading the different theories, but it really is what I said it is. Below the bottom bearing is what we call the sliding door which keeps a flush surface to the hull throughout our 15 deg Cant range. This day it busted and was causing some drag. However, believe what you want, we get a good kick out of hearing some of the theories.

But we all know Oracle sailors will say whatever the chequebook tells them to… So, is it a super-secret foil fence?  Maybe it’s a supercavitating thingamabob?  Camera pod?  Ride height sensor?  Herbie 2.0? A turd flown over from Rio?

Weigh in.

As press conferences go, this is a good one; young Slingers looking like a deer in the headlights and Jimmy getting grilled on the early retirement for Oracle.  Watch the whole thing; Ray is always a chuckle and Jimmy’s finally being his old compelling self, and now’s the time to get to know them.
