    Teams?

    Given two challenges from Italy and now that Mr Trump has made America great again. I'm expecting a raft of more challenges from the USA.

    It's not really a problem. Dalts can just send the cup to Garrard to have the 2013 inscription expunged.

    Correct. Also the labour politician who is supportive of the cup is Trevor Mallard who is likely to be speaker, so wont have any pet projects to push.

    Electric motors if they are allowed a big enough battery.

    Goodbye Russell ... ?

    Wethog. You should know the rules by now. Only foreign yatch clubs can challenge and the defender is a single club. The defending club may choose one of multiple teams to defend on their behalf but other yatch clubs have nothing to do with it.

    Desk model of Aotearoa now available: http://www.abordage.com/fine-ship-models/americas-cup-boats/emirates-team-new-zealand-catamaran-ac-50-2017-desk-model.html?utm_source=ETNZ&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=ETNZAC50 The New York Yatch Club had a scale model of each winning boat. Do they still do that?

    I was up there over the weekend checking out houses on the peninsula. I saw all the Open BIC's out sailing at Manly. May have been there for that. Russell has been open with his praise for Burling all along so who knows what he is trying to cook up. Maybe he was aksing Burling for a job

    The general idea is hardly new. I recall the use of route planning software was widespread for the online Volvo sailing game. Some I gather had even set up scripts to control the game while they were asleep using input from an online route planning site. It isn't much of a stretch from that kind of thing to "set your foil like this"

  14. I would say that Dalts will want to run the defence. Win or lose he might move on to something else after that.
