    I for one am disappointed that we won't have that this cycle - its the role I've been training my whole life for!

    Nothing pisses me off more than people who choose to live in the heart of the city, and then complain when it beats.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Fuckin Horrible situation. Deepest condolences out to his family, friends, shipmates and, well everyone affected by this. To those complaining about the VOR not updating us and posting other updates - it is highly likely those other updates are automated/scheduled and not someone 'tone deafly' posting them. The social media team is likely the last part of the VOR organizers informed of this type of situation - Race Control will be too busy trying everything they can to tell the intern running the twitter and facebook accounts to post anything.

    I was riffing on Olympic Athlete from Russia. Trying to bring some humor into this clusterfuck.

    So really they should have competed as 'Americas Cup Athletes from Oracle Team USA' (ACAOTUSA - catchy)

    AC36 - The Venue

    I remember a debate when a music venue on K Rd closed down someone said "Don't move into the heart of the city, then complain when you can hear it beat".

    AC36 - The Venue

    1) Its not just their base, it is also their 'innovation hub' - so likely has a museum or similar to the technologies of the AC (the AC50 is outside in the model), 2) ETNZ will push for it to be a permanent base so they will want space for the design team to work in the future 3) ETNZ will be testing from that base (I would assume) so will need the extra space for their design and testing work
  13. According to Wiki, NZL-39 was sold to Supersail Deutschland in Keil, Germany for Corporate Charters (http://www.supersail.de/en/) EDIT: Some photos here http://www.supersail.de/en/corporate-events/segeln-match-race/

    How great would it be if they polished that up a bit and released it for the public to 'try their luck'

    In NZ it would be the 'Official Information Act': "The Official Information Act 1982 is a New Zealand law which replaced the Official Secrets Act of 1951 which made the release of information held by Government agencies an offence.[1] The Official Information Act takes the opposite approach and is designed to promote access to information held by various Government agencies. Its guiding principle is that information should be made available unless a good reason exists under the Act for withholding it." https://fyi.org.nz/ (sponsored by the Herald) has a lot of the OIA releases published.
