    You mean to say you didn't even watch AC35? The event that brought sailing the masses like ever before as you claim? No wonder you think the SGP looks impressive - you have no idea what good racing looks like! There were multiple 100% flight times... just watch the clips like all the other thousands who have :-)

    I know you are struggling intellectualy, but it was a joke. You laugh at jokes... Not cry... That's what you do when you lose a cup, or a video production contract when the league dies out... Getting in some advance practice?

    Ahh so its the people now eh? And it's what they did before SGP? What an idiot...

    Their AC50 Aotearoa New Zealand has recently turned up at the ETNZ base... I suppose they could take it out and repeat another 50 knots, but of course, what do they have to prove? These things are old tech now ;-) We'll leave the spite to the others :-)

    Good point - how many AC50s are there other than ETNZs? If they find Artemis' one, they could pull together a swapsies match race series and smash 50 knots! ;-D

    "SailGP has done more than ANY program EVER" Your words, not mine. So is that like the Trump version of "giving credit where it's due"? To say nothing of the lack of having 'done' anything, what about the lack of any actual result. Where is this "excited" and "broader audience" you proclaim? It's not even inside the vanity metrics from paid-promoted autoplaying YouTube content, or mobile app downloads that you claim is the New Metric™. Again, I get the fact you've gotta desperately try and pump up SGP, but it's doubly pathetic and counterproductive to falsely dump on the rest of the sailing world... True colours eh...

    I know this will look good on your resume, which you may need in the near future, but you do realise that to anyone who has followed AC coverage in the last 20 years this is pure and utter horse-shit... SGP is a direct clone of AC35 in terms of TV production, visualisation and audience appeal. At best it has kicked the ball a little forward with some more data about how much slower the F50 is than the AC50s, but the giant leaps were originally made by Animation Research and the likes of Stan Honey more recently... Again your hyperbole is classic Trump-style lies... frankly it's a little odd to see you provide zero credit to your contemporaries in the field... but I guess Stan is dead to you now eh seeing he's gone to the dark side? I'm sure LE will look after you :-)

    Except it will still be higher quality sailing, and more watched, more exciting, more interesting and better produced than Fail GP ;-) If you're lucky you might be able to get a gig doing the production on some b-roll behind the scenes fodder for ACWS snapchat account once SGP dries up?

    Given a few more years of development they might even have a boat quick enough to have actually proved a worthy challenge for the likes of Artemis and ETNZ AC50s... Except these F50 things weigh much more the AC50s right? All those batteries and magic transducers and stuff - we should ask TC, he's keenly aware as to how much weight can drastically effect foiling performance... https://sailgp.com/about/f50-catamaran/ ahhh but SGP don't declare the weight of the F50... how odd...

    To be fair it is a significant step up from OTUSA's AC50! I think that must have been what he meant.

    Thanks but I'm more than happy here bathing in the glow of the trouncing victory over a laughably inept, duplicitous and outright slow sailing team in the world's oldest sporting competition, along with the rest of the The Kiwinners™ here and the other AC fans discussing AC36. But I do totally appreciate that you are having to knock on every door in an increasingly desperate effort to peddle such nonsense as the continued failure that is the SGP... again, I wish you much luck in finding some people who care... given you still cant even preach the much touted and promised 50 knots I'd suggest you just continue post more advertorials about the mobile app, that should help get the android downloads above the rounding error that is 5k!

    @smackdaddy I see you've taken it upon yourself to start an SGP thread in MH Anarchy - To which we wish you godspeed, and may you never darken our SAAC door again ;-) Or as your boss's, boss's, boss's, boss's, boss's boss would say 'Sayonara'

    At what point do you think @smackdaddy will realise his clueless jazz hands can't wave away actual fact. Trump's tactics might have barely squeaked by in the States smack, don't expect them to wash around here...
