    Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Does anyone know whatever happened to the Stars and Strips boat from AC36? Too soon?

    They're going to need to sort crew work for the big boat so I'd expect Te Aihe will be the focus once it's re-commissioned. Unless they have enough crew to run both boats? That would be an interesting dial-up

    Similar to the Sail World article posted above https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/americas-cup/121926605/americas-cup-team-new-zealand-completing-dry-laps-as-test-block-ends Team New Zealand have wrapped up another testing and training block by producing consistent dry laps on a practice course on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour. The America’s Cup defenders put themselves through four races on a tight, challenging course set up on the inner harbour and excelled sailing their test boat Te Kahu in 12-15 knots of breeze. “The 12m [Te Kahu] has been incredible for us, we’ve tested all sorts of things and it’s just a good way for us to focus back on racing,” Team New Zealand coach Ray Davies said.

    I've been re-watching some of the AC35 racing on YouTube which is pretty entertaining. Not so much the final but the earlier rounds. Does anyone know if they have the press conferences online somewhere? There was some classic stuff from Burling post race that I'd love to see again.

    I'm a bit surprised no one has posted this here yet. More "details" on the front page.

    Burling, Tuke, Maloney, Junior and a bunch of top sailors all competing in the Teams Racing national Champs in Kerikeri this weekend. Gorgeous day yesterday, ugly as today with 35 gusting 40 forecast for later in the afternoon.

    I do, of course, want ETNZ to retain the cup. However, if we did lose it, there would be some wonderful symmetry if Barker were to be the one who takes it from us. AM is my number 2.

    Reminds me of Ken Miles' tell tales on the original GT40 in Ford v Ferrari. Great movie.

    Saving our sorry ass country? We didn't need saving, we could have happily sat down here and kept out heads down. As it stands, NZ went to fight in Europe two years before the US declared war against Japan and the Axis powers. We declared war with Japan the same time you did. I lost a grandfather and two great uncles fighting alongside the US in the Pacific war so I don't feel like we didn't do our bit.

    Clearly he has made the physical transition which is fantastic, and has meshed well with the team which can't be underestimated. I won't labour the point, but I'm impressed he's made the transition from lower to upper body. The rowers went from sitting down to standing up ... still mostly using arm power.
