    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.
  10. No, back to the tried and true. Coutts on Helm and Butterworth calling tactics. Yes BB is over there on vacation and guest commentating for NZ radio with PJ Montgomery. Seems a waste of talent. Plus, if they kept it under wraps it would also have a great shock factor in the starting box. Burling and the boys would no doubt freak out and muff the start for sure, and OR needs a good start.
  11. My take on it is if they can make the boat faster or as fast as TNZ then why hadn't they done that already? The boat has been in development for years. Can't see what you can do in 5 days that will make any difference to be honest. And as for Frisco, I think OR was the faster boat then, it just wasn't being sailed properly. I'm not sure that is the case this time!

    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.
