    AC 36: INEOS TEAM UK

    Definitely the "Bat-boat".
  2. S&S stopped paying, so ETNZ stopped sharing months and months ago.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    For goodness sake there is PLENTY of room for the F50's and the AC. Still plenty of sailors, designers etc looking for a job. And just watching both beats doing quite a few other things. Sit back and enjoy them both for what they are.

    It is a very revealing video. Surprisingly so don't you think ? Why would that be ?

    AC36 - The Venue

    VHH plan to build a hotel where HQ is. They are worried about their view should the ETNZ/council plan prevail - hence their suggestion. VHH neighbors are worried about them going up many many stories .... nothing to do with the cup - just developer interest. A new hotel should be no higher than the surrounding buildings IMHO.

    It’s a fact etnz wages were not paid until just a few weeks ago. nice payout in place of the Auckland regatta helpfully paid back Matteo.

    "I wasn't consulted" is the usual refrain when the result isn't what they wanted. Reality is it was between etnz and the Italians to decide. Very high level Concepts were knocked up more than a year ago. If you don't like it tough. Enter, win it and you make the rules. Lose and you get to choose whether to play or not to rules others make. just like real life really. This will be way cool. Real boats, real sailors sailing in a real sea way etc. the trickle down theory at work with rich people spending like drunks on whose got the biggest and best. Go ETNZ.
