    ^ Good to see Oracle still doing what they're good at, making slick self-promotional videos.

    ^ Thanks. We rely on you for textual clarity.

    ^ Actually what people objected to were your insinuations of cheating.

    The winning foils

    Excuse my ignorance but can someone give a simple explanation of how the different foil tips are attached and removed?

    Hauraki Gulf wind statistics

    I remember in 2003 there were many days delay but I can't remember if it was for too much or too little wind and what the limits were.

    Blimey! We'll be hearing soon that ETNZ were living in brown paper bags.
  9. They are whilst LE is there. The question is whether he still has the appetite for the AC. It wouldn't surprise me if he sold the assets to someone else who wants to get into the game. That's how LE himself got started, by buying Paul Cayard's AmericaOne outfit after the 2000 cup.

    Be careful what you say. @Wethog will be making more accusations of collusion!

    Anyone heard from Deano??

    The f'd penalty call was in the qualifiers. It played no part on ARs failure to beat ETNZ and reach the match.

    I know, it's the same silliness that has Spithill joint record holder of the most AC race wins. But hey, we're in celebratory mood.

    As skipper yes, but with different teams.

    ETNZ with three wins are, along with Harold Vanderbilts syndicate of the '30s, the most successful AC team / syndicate of all time. And, whilst we're doing superlatives, it's worth noting that that the 7-1 victory over Oracle is the biggest winning margin in AC history.
