    Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Thanks. Nice summary. I'd also encourage folks to watch the video on the front page with Oakleys comments about halfway through it. Most links to that interview edit his out (or maybe I only finally watched the full interview after it was mentioned! ).

    Oracle Team USA

    Artemis is wasting time shipping the boat back and forth to SF, then are just now building a base in bermuda. BAR probably spent too much time building their fancy base on the wrong side of the atlantic, OR built a base when everyone else could, they just built it fast and moved there. They started building their 45T before anyone else, and BAR says they'll have more than one trial horse. Seems like Oracle is way better managed. NZ still isn't sailing a 45T, they said they were building their own like a year ago, then buys LRs and still isn't sailing. Sure, that's one way to look at it - if you don't really know how it works... Has it occurred to you that the land on which teams x,y and z are designated to perch - is still on it's way from Canada? Or that it might have been a slight advantage to know in advance when the event/s would be held, where the event/s would be held, in what type and size of boat/s, if surrogates would be allowed and then whether you could find sponsors who found that proposal attractive - if you didn't have 'independent means'. Not to mention the lack of transparency between Event Authority and the Defender on one hand and the hosts and the various sponsors on the other, the playing off of teams against each other on critical decisions and the convenient on the spot rule making by the Race Management so reminiscent of AC34 and which we have already seen in AC35. Apart from those few points you were spot on. Any link to this "Has it occurred to you that the land on which teams x,y and z are designated to perch - is still on it's way from Canada?"?

    well, something is going to give... Arcona yachts are available with a rubber bumper built in to the front of the keel - i guess because it's pretty common to hit rocks in scandanavia. Hobie 33 "Crash" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdVHhg5600Y

    certainly insurance rates go up.... regulations getting tighter can be self inflicted too...both have happened locally in response

    More than a relative difference - an actual difference. SF: -10M (wag) SD: 20M (wag) BER: 80M (that's what we're talking about!) Any land deals with Ber? That was a big part of the 34th discussion

    No more than anyone else that would want to see AC35 raced on the SF Bay. Breaking news for those unaware (all here obviously) the venue selection is not put up for a vote to all members. It probably never was when other clubs considered other options as well, but apparently that's too difficult a concept to understand. Sorry folks, pursue other issues for your daily dose of AC drama - this one is stillborne. well, since the government and citizens of SF didn't really give a damn about AC34, and didn't really want AC35.., I don't see how anyone can be upset with LE. and, I really doubt the membership of GGYC expected that they were going to be consulted about the issue just a reminder that most of the sf bay area (and sailors, boats) are not in sf. Many travelled into sf to build the case for ac34 in sf. Don't recall a similar call to arms to build a case for ac35 in sf or sf bay area. Was there one?
