The grinders on the cycle mechanism provide hydraulic pressure for the control of the sail trims. I don’t believe it is used for steering and am not sure about the blades. I think they have their own electric power.

The cycles were Team NZ's innovation for the last America's Cup, which they won.
Since the winner essentially sets the rules for the next cup, Team NZ banned them for this one.
It would no longer be a strategic advantage - and would shift the sport from guys with shoulders to guys with legs.
I've popped up to Auckland and seen these boats practicing. They are amazingly quick, and you can see the forces involved when it goes wrong with the Patriot capsize.
There have been other capsizes - Team NZ has done 3, 2 in the prototype boat and one in the final boat, only minor damage compared to the what the Americans suffered - they've been able to pull the boat upright and keep on going.
Sloop John B should be the winner of the best sailing song because first; “sloop” is in the title, second; raising the main is in the chorus, third; it even makes mention of how the main sets – this is a real sailing tune.
However it doesn’t win the Best Song title because “he feels so broke up, he wants to go home” and the tune loses points for that
I try to avoid anything from these sphincters. With a VPN, it's far easier to use DuckDuckGo or StartPage (which forwards Only Do Evil's results anyway). If I use their search engine directly, it often wants me to go through several captchas to prove I'm not a bot. No wonder, because VPNs make it harder to assemble dossiers. There's far more that could be said. If Dante were still around, he'd add an extra circle in Hell for these pricks.
I switched from Firefox some years ago and never regretted it. And I even installed Chrome on my iPad to replace the awful Safari. From what I have seen of Edge (when MS forces me to use it) it is not that wonderful.
Chrome "just works" - it displays every page you throw at it, and it's "multi-device" support is excellent - you can send pages to other devices such as my phone or Surface for later.
It's stable, it's not ugly, you can mute all tabs except for those on a white list, ...
I've been using it for years and have no problem with it.

You should consider switching away to FireFox again.
FireFox is far better and does a lot of blocking of tracking cookies and other items.
I used Chrome for a long while because dev console was so great.
But now FireFox has at least of as good of dev console and you get the freedom from the large company.
I also quite using Google search -- duckduckgo instead.
I do have an Android phone and like android devices so I've installed FireFox there too.
I like to switch it up in an effort to make it so one ginormous company doesn't just take over.
All of these points are features of Firefox too, sans the spying.

When using any browser on an iPad, you are using the Safari rendering engine because that's the only one Apple allows on their devices. So, on an iPad, the Chrome browser is a skin that replaces the Safari skin. You may prefer that skin, but in terms of rendering, etc., it's Safari all the way down.
Note that it's not your iPad, it's theirs. It's nice of them to let you use it.
The page content should be pixel-accurate for most content even if there were two different rendering engines because the specs are precise. If they are different, that's either in an area where the spec leaves decisions to the user agent or where the rendering engine is not compliant. iOS does include multiple HTML components, so perhaps it is now possible for an app to use a different renderer than iOS Safari uses, but if so, the renderer is still provided by Apple.
I never claimed that it is. I just stated that of all the browsers I have used I find Chrome works best for me. So when someone says it is the worst browser ever I tend to dismiss his opinion because it does not match my experience.
