    Press release or it didn't happen. Sorry, Mfluders rules!

    Clarkey, trust me on this. Someone inside Core told me they were working on these boats. His response wasn't prompted, I just asked what they were working on at the moment and he dropped that clanger. I was as surprised as anyone. Having mentioned this to a few others I got the impression that quite a few people already knew about this,hence the reason I started this thread. Do I think it will survive? That's a whole other story

    This was from a guy who is building the foils. He also said that the BAR boat had just turned up. A mate rang me the next day and he had beard about it too. Definitely not a rumour.

    I agree, but the difference with this is that the boats exist, some of which are at core, and they are spending large modifying them and building boards. This doesn't mean it's commercially viable, just that Larry has some loose change lying around...

    Core are building one design foils and modding the boats. Anyone heard anything else?

    Yeah he said that they were initially really worried about the measurement side of things "after what happened in SF". I was surprised nobody seemed to pick up on the comment

    So proud of our team. I've been lucky enough to be involved in several cups in the past but this feels different. Might be age, might be thoughts of 2013, who knows, but they have outsmarted and outsailed the worlds best. Magic

    Thought you were busy with the Lions tour?

    Was thinking the same. Maybe some should go and watch the 2013 debacle again.

    Just re watched the last gate mess in race one. Looked to me like PB thought they had finished - was about to congratulate one of the grinders before someone called him over!

    Probably better not to say Mudsy. He said that when the the broken board was sent back for repair he noticed something wasn't right - in his words they were cheating.

    Ironically I heard the exact same thing about Oracle's boards - from one of their boatbuilders no less. I don't know how you'd check other than cutting them up?

    Not sure what they are up to but they definitely did fly a bunch of guys up there. Stranger though was a story I heard from a reliable source who told me that Oracle were cheating with regards to some construction rules. I figured they were talking about the last cup with the 45's but they said that it was just recent, and in regards to the foils. Made me wonder if maybe Oracle was behind the revisions to the foil rules - would be ironic no?
