    Stars & Stripes Team USA confirmed as 5th Challenger

    Is Jim Ratcliffe willing to do that? I mean, he bought in a Sailing Team (Ineos Team UK), a Cycling Team (Team Ineos) and a French Soccer Club. Doubtful he will let some more money loose.

    I think it will be 2 ACWS Events (the one in Cagliari and the one in Auckland in October 2020) The supposed 2nd Event in Europe mentioned by ETNZ's COO Kevin Snarkbridge is just pure Fantasy. Who is going to pay for that Event? In 2015 & 2016 the ACWS Events in Portsmouth, UK were paid by Sir Keith Mills and his Origin Group. ETNZ doesn't have the money to stage an Event in the UK.

    AC 36: INEOS TEAM UK

    Have to say this: Still very pleased that T-C & Stingray is here. These are my two buddies

    Tom says by suspending their AC Challenge (if they do so) they wouldn't be completely out of AC Business but they could set up a robust AC37 Challenge should American Magic fail to win back the Cup in Auckland 2021. And quite frankly for me that would make a whole lot of sense.

    BREAKING from Tom Ehman's FB Show today: The Long Beach Yacht Club which is the YC associated with Stars & Stripes Team USA Challenge according to Tom are "internally" talking about suspending their AC36 Challenge. Ehman wouldn't be talking such things if he hasn't a high degree of confidence in it AND thus far this AC Cycle he has been right on many accounts.

    Nonsense gain. I'm told that Ainslie bought in a Hand Gun and will threaten Boris Johnson personally if he doesn't let him out

    LOL, Most of the INEOS Sailors have already qualified within the Residency Rules required by the Protocol. The Sailing Team from 2017 stayed with Ben except for Graeme Spence, Joey Newton, Luke Parkinson and Iain Jensen. Chris Brittle is already from the UK. Please stop these shit Questions.

    Boykot the AC. Not race there!

    AC 36: INEOS TEAM UK

    They won't be in England for long. They will have plenty of Sailing Days when they're down in Cagliari at the end of November/early December. They will have Full 3 1/2 months of Training & Testing mostly uninterrupted.

    These Kiwi Posters here on SA are whining. Actually I really have nothing against ETNZ. That Team is generally very decent. These NZ Posters here on SA ain't.

    If I should be in bed so should be that Clown @Forourselves with his nonsense talking Points. It would be so nice if SA would be New Zealand Free Crap Posters because all of these Clowns without a Question are bad.

    These Kiwi Whiners should go ahead with their Clown Cup. I am STUNNED by Ben Ainslie that he bothered to show up there. He, AM, LR should have boykotted it and let ETNZ race themselves.

    Unfortunately Ben should give up. He won't win. Stay home in the UK.

    Yup, I'd agree with Stingers. It's pure fantasy to think they make it to Cagliari. Given the Logistics that are involved they would need to have a Boat ready to sail at the end of October or early November to get proper training and then ship it to Italy. They have no Shore Crew, they have no Sailing Team except for Canfield. The only way they'll get there is if the USASailGP Team packs it up and instead goes for the AC and I don't see Rome Kirby doing that. Every Major US Sailor is either involved with SailGP, the American Magic Challenge or other Racing Circuits around the Planet. Buckley/Canfield were really ill advised to start an All American AC Challenge when there is already an American Team which is sucking all the air in.

    They are not going to make it unless ETNZ charters an AC380 Cargo Plane for them. At the present time they have no logistics at all to get there.
