    Depending on how narrow minded your view point is one might think that having a NZ firm employing over 100 people for over a year might be a good thing for the local economy .

    The “ Big Brother “ ? Big Brother to whom exactly ? Certainly not to anywhere near the percentage of the actual sailing community they had a dozen years ago . The best the AC can hope for is to ramp up interest to the here today gone tomorrow Xgames crowd and that is years away . For the next coupl,e of years the only ones interested in following the AC will be the foiling crowd and perhaps NEw Zealanders and those numbers are a fraction of what it used to be . Yes this is a generalization to a degree but just swing by most any yacht club and try to strike up a AC related conversation . The blank stare should tell you all you need to know .

    We can most likely cut the post count by 5 to10 a day from a certain member saying that there is no way this will ever happen

    This should be looked at as plus for the NZ economy . The well established boat building community which has grown year by year due in great part do to a VERY favorable $$$ exchange rate is well situated to handle the fleets needs . The dollars flowing into the area will help mitigate the lower than expected income from the AC due to a smaller number of participants what what was planned on .

    With as short of a time that this thread has been here it’s far and away the most active . With 44,000 + views and 15 pages of comments if you moved it this place would be a dead zone . Case in point other than this topic the last comment was on Tuesday and it’s thursday noon PST as I post this .

    This thread already has as many pages and more posts that the AC venue thread which had a six months head start . When or if it gets moved things will be quiet around here for a good bit yet . Not a whole lot to talk about currently . Better this than nothing perhaps ?
  7. Thank you Kiwi, I’ll be in town for that one .

    Anyone find it ironic that the most active thread in this his forum is about the Uncle Larry’s AC 50 program ?

    So you are saying that anyone that leaves a particular endeavor while basically not holding a championship trophy in their hand is doing something wrong ? Even if they have already won said trophy twice prior ? Really ??? Based on your flawed thinking Sir Thomas Lipton must be a total loser , he never even won it once. What a piece of work , truly .

    That's true. Be sure to let RH know, he might be able to stop pacing the halls , at least for now

    Where does it say that once you enter the AC you have to stay in it forever ? Who died and made you the rule maker . He won it , defended it , lost it . He ticked all the boxes and moved on to something different . This thread has been so active for so long mostly because of your unnatural attraction to all things Ellison. Let AC 34 go , seek professional assistance ,. Don't let your fantasies sully a series that might provide a nice living for actual sailors . Besides this is all for naught isn't it ? I mean you are the guy that said without a doubt this would never happen ? You aren't about to admit you were actually wrong about something are you ?

    He's been there ,won it more than once and got the tee shirt. I said years ago he would stay in the game until he got bored of it or had nothing else to prove. He has nothing left to prove in the AC why not move on to something new ?

    This has to be good for the NZ economy , keeping 100 employed with this new fleet. Once they are completed there will be additional repair and modification work down the road and hopefully other new boats as the fleet grows.

    Agreed , perhaps two sets of deepest pockets in all of sailing . On the other hand how can this possibley be true. We heard numerous times from a certain expert on a well regarded sailing forum that this would NEVER come about ? It must be fake news
