    Only THREE challengers have signed up. What a joke! Designing and building foiling boats is far too expensive. Go back to traditional monohull displacement sailing. Cheaper, more challengers and better racing.

    SO DUMB that a country of 325 million people and they can't find a helmsman. Just the same old sailors swapping between teams. The America's Cup has become too incestuous.

    So it should. Don't you agree?

    Now that Oracle is Kaput. What is Spithills next gig? Is it ... 1. Skipper and helm of Team Australia? 2. Skipper and helm of Team Alinghi with Butterballs calling tactics? 3. Helm of BAR with Ainslie calling tactics? 4. Commentator? 5. The Bachelor 2020? 6. Other? Thoughts please!

    Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    That would be dumb. I thought proper sail boats were boats that used a sail and the wind as opposed to a motor and diesel? Hence the sport and hobby - Sailing. Therefore, how many hulls your sail boat has should be irrelevant.

    Let's hope we can defend the cup both on and off the water.

    OR was always faster in '13. It took 9 races for them to learn how to sail. '17 OR is slower and have had to destabilize their boat to get within the TNZ ball park.

    8 reasons to bench JS for Race 9 tomorrow. 1. Can't start. 2. Can't foil. 3. Can't gybe. 4. Can't tack. 5. Can't sail. 6. Can't win. 7. Can't talk. 8. Not an American.

    Yes the teams read all the posts each night after racing. Btw Spithill is in here posting incognito.

    When they're 7-zip down Spithill will pull himself and put Barker on the helm. It would be a great twist.

    If it's 6 races to zip this time next week I'd say it's on the cards.

    As long as Dalts is still in the mix I'm only 95% confident instead of 100%.

    Brad Butterworth in good form in the commentary box for todays races. "Yesterday OR looked slow and today look just as slow.". "If they [OR] lose the next race they'll be in a massive spin, they might spin so much they'll spin off this island." "[OR behind in race 2] Might have to get the binoculars out." "It's gonna be tough to put the cuckoo back in the clock in OR I think."
