    Thanks MaxHugen. As you said, the articles a bit long and just a few snippets to be taken from it... will be interesting to see what happens with the next Cup in any case. Thanks again for posting the text.

    Unfortunately this is behind a paywall. Can anybody extract the text? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/americas-cup-should-become-the-f1-of-sailing-05wmq3z32 Along with “Everest of sailing” I think this “F1 of sailing” thing gets a bit old.... trotted out every time the America’s cup rolls around!

    AC TV Coverage

    For Australian viewers the action will be broadcast on Fox Sports/Kayo. Broadcast begins 1pm Thurs. Presumably any live coverage on youtube or the website will be “geoblocked”?

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Hey Couta, you’ve absolutely hit the nail on the head. It seems ridiculous that a two-handed boat is not eligible to win while everything from a 100 foot diesel-powered canter to a 30 something foot 1904 timber classic (Katwinchar or Maluka) are eligible. The other 600 mile Rolex races manage to include these boats, why not the CYCA? #stuckinthepast

    That Jim Farmer blogpost is spot on. Will be interesting to see what the future holds for TNZ after this current cycle.

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    FWIW Black Jack is back in the country and berthed at Sydney City Marine in Rozelle as of this week. Scallywag remains in Brisbane for now.

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Given these recommendations from World Sailing issued in August, the likelihood of this race in 2020 is minimal in my opinion.... Christmas Day in self isolation with your team would be interesting! F. Period of self-isolation prior to race start Participants in Category 0 and 1 race should self-isolate for a period of 14 days prior to race start. However, if PCR testing is undertaken, this period of self-isolation may be reasonably reduced to 5 days (see Section G: Pre-race COVID-19 PCR testing). However, the crew should stay strictly self-isolated in their extended team (including boat and shore team members) avoiding all outside contact. Attention must be paid to required activities such as re-provisioning, health checks, team logistics, to ensure these are undertaken in the safest manner possible.

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    CYCA has just cancelled a planned TP52 “regatta” which was scheduled for sep 5/6 also due to the impact of the above mentioned rules. There were 9 or 10 boats entered. No word yet on the rest of the sailing season...

    They’re looking very good. The bow down attitude of the boat seems to be the way to go, just like the ac50s?!

    Aust Sailing Australian IRC Championships

    The NOR for last years Aus IRC championships in Melbourne (Jan 2019) also had the Hobart race included, was only removed after some owners complained... I’ll see if I can find a copy.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    Loving the look of this boat and can’t wait to see it sailing. Well done to VPLP and Hugo Boss team Where are the winches? Isn’t there a rule that states winches have to be operated on deck?

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    Saw the first of the 70(!) containers arriving to woolwich and loading on to a barge around 3rd Jan. Have been away for the last week but live nearby so will try and get some pics of base and setup progress.

    AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    Great interview Clean. A lot of references to F1 in the interview so i thought these two links might be relevant. It seems even F1 doesn’t get paid for TV rights in the US! An America’s Cup broadcast solely over the internet, without any pay tv fuckery, we can only hope! https://f1broadcasting.co/2017/10/04/f1s-digital-strategy-unfolds-as-conflict-with-tv-model-takes-centre-stage/ http://m.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Daily/Morning-Buzz/2017/10/04/F1.aspx?
