  1. And that is the most worrying behaviour by those who chose to look the other way when it suited them, and are complicit in "normalising" human characteristics that used to be considered unacceptable.

    Teams?

    I'm not worried about having only 3 Challengers - they are legitimate well-resourced Challengers who can afford to compete at the design and technology levels and sailing personnel unconstrained by funding shortage. Very similar to Bermuda where there were realistically only 3 serious Challengers: ETNZ, Artemis, BAR. I'd rather have 3 serious Challengers than 6 or 7 if the other 3 or 4 are just there to make up the numbers..

    AC36 - The Venue

    Thank you for the summary...I would hazard a guess that the muppets causing the "hardship" in the Resource Consent process the developers of the hotel and apartments they're trying so hard to leverage off AC36. Parasites!!

    Mr. Vanderbilt never foresaw the likes of Ellison, unlike your founding fathers and framers of your Constitution who could have devised the Emoluments restrictions with the Dotard in mind.

    More like a bookend in the shadow, with AC34* asterisked in perpetuity for their cheating and self-dealings in the America's Cup.

    Only in your pathetic little mind. The people who matter - Kiwis - acknowledge the role Ashby played in the ETNZ team design and sailing programme since AC34*

    What's that got to do with anything?? The Design Team manager was/is English, the tea lady was Russian, the toilet cleaner was a yank...your point??

    The only thing the cheaters were faster than were these Bermuda locals..

    Why are you wasting your time on a second-rate losers' regatta that we were assured would be launched this year? All we've had so far is fake news over this...

    Soggy_porkie also conveniently overlooks the fact that one of the biggest spenders in sports advertising and sponsorships in the world is happily spending in Auckland -

    3 top Challengers compared to 3 Challengers with one realistic one? No comparison. Read it and weep - Auckland 2021 is where it's happening

    Teams?

    I don't understand why people are getting upset over the number of Challengers. AC36 has attracted the 3 best and most well-funded and -resourced Challengers ever, from whom the Challenger will be very tough to beat. Perth had the most number of Challengers, but Dennis-the-menace was realistically the only competitive Challenger with any chance of winning. Valencia 2007 likewise, with only LR and ETNZ realistic Challengers. AC35 - well, there was only 1 team in it, and they duly won. Roll on 2021!

    Actually, that's not quite correct. It's recognised in NZ as using the yanks' own predisposition to lawsuits against them, and he won. Until xenophobia overturned the court ruling.

    Which part of this Article from DoG can't you wrap your feeble brain around?? Fuckwit!! "The Club challenging for the Cup and the Club holding the same may, by mutual consent, make any arrangement satisfactory to both as to the dates, courses, number of trials, rules and sailing regulations, and any and all other conditions of the match, in which case also the ten months' notice may be waived."

    Teams?

    The British sailors in Artemis were the best thing about that team. They would have thrashed the cheaters had they got past ETNZ but they were never going to beat Aotearoa. Which is the real reason why they haven't challenged in AC36. They know they'd be up against the 3 most well-funded Challengers ever assembled, so they've tucked their tail between their legs and slimed off to join the other losers in their paddle boats.... The bigger problem for them and the cheaters is how they can become involved in the America's Cup ever again, because if ETNZ defend successfully in 2021, any new Challenger would be so far off the pace that they might as well piss their budget into the sea...
