    Teams?

    Winners are always "arrogant" according to losers...

    And why not? All part of the economic benefits of the AC, generating GST and PAYE and jobs..

    ALL hip-pocket Challengers have been "amenable" to the Defenders - hence the term. Some too "amenable" than others which is why we've had DoG Challenges. Where have you been hiding for the last 30+ years?

    Hard to be reasonable with the AC33 cheat with his fake Challenger CNEV...

    Team Norway

    Norwegian sailors were very well-respected and in high demand back in the day...hope they can get their funds in time for the next AC cycle, of not for AC36.

    Why stop at nurses: what about the teachers and police?? But of course a Russky bot wouldn't know that

    Still peddling your bullshit Simon...AC36 was always going to be in monohulls if ETNZ won AC35: they did, and it is. Take your hate and fuck off to the Brexit forum.

    Maybe the first of the 5 sock puppets in Bermuda. ETNZ executed their first perfect foiling tack 4 days after they launched in Auckland - that's a fact!

    This looks eminently vicious with Ben Ainsley steering

    Fair enough. But I'm not sure whether the $50-mil for an Aussie Challenge under the London Agreement was even realistic, given that the LA format would only have been possible had the cheaters defended successfully in AC35 - or one of their sock puppets won. Had the cheaters defended, I could easily see Slingsby staying with the cheaters - perhaps even taking over from Jimmy. On top of this, the London Agreement format meant AC36 in 2019, which would have left an Aussie Challenge struggling to get an AC50 design up and manufactured in 12 months. Or was the expectation that the cheaters would provide their designs to an Aussie Challenge? I'm not buying the $50 war chest you keep bringing up in your constant blaming of ETNZ for the costs of challenging in AC36.

    Team NYYC

    I always felt Deano was more suited to monohulls. Coutts and Burling both have engineering pedigrees which Deano doesn't have (nor for that matter Spithill), which always limited his contribution to the team (ETNZ), making it inevitable that he would be released by ETNZ for AC35. I'm not sure he's got what it takes to helm the American Magic AC75 in anger...
