    Stars and Stripes Team USA is gone

    At this point, the only way S+S can keep going is for ETNZ and LR to mutually agree to amend the Protocol and NOR, which they can do. If they do, their next hurdle will be the protests from AM NYYC and INEOS. Then it will go to the arbitration panel. While they are at it, they could change the constructed in country rule (again if both agree to change the protocol, they can), and let S+S sail ETNZ boat #1. I am curious..... what do you all think is a realistic time line to: 1. Build a hull and deck in Michigan 2. Install foil arm systems 3. Rig and sails 4. Install fittings, hardware, winch systems and electronics 5. Launch 6. Sea Trial 7. Pack it all up and ship it to Auckland 8. Unload it 9. Training and Practice 10. Be ready to race on December 17 2020 for Auckland ACWS event (10.5 months from now)

    Way worse for the members of LBYC. The club Flag officers are silent on anything. No announcements of any kind, but they did send out a letter asking for donations. Pretty big blow to the reputation of a great club. They F---ed up so bad on this they are frozen and have no idea what to do. Maybe afraid of being named in a lawsuit. LBYC had it's installation of flag officers for 2020 last weekend. Not one word on S+S. LBYC is sadly turning into a banquet facility with most members not into sailing or boating. The few sailors left there see the whole AC thing as a huge embarrassment.

    There's got to be at least one powerboat with topless women. Where is it?

    How many times does Ricko need to say "Ease it" or "trim". Fuck!!!! Must have a bunch of wankers sailing with him if he needs to talk that much. They must go through alot of crew.

    The BEST AC VIDEO's....

    If you like match racing (not currently part of the America's Cup), this video is one of the all-time greats. It was Chris Dickson's last race on an AC boat...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1hYEuJWjW8

    whatcha think?

    Quite a few Quantum sail tags in an Ullman ad. Just sayin'.
  12. You won't find a better value, or a better boat to race offshore on. I have been racing them since the late 80's (many different boats) and they are fast and pleasant offshore. I've also raced on some Andrews designs (Locomotion and Med Man) and while great boats as well, they are low freeboard, small down below and very wet. It all comes down to how you want to enjoy your sailing. If you own a sled and like sailing with your long time shipmates that are north of 50, great. If you get a TP 52, probably going to need to import some younger skiff sailors. Both are great.

    2019 Islands Race-Looking Sporty

    Catalina to port. No SC Island. Leave the blast reacher on the dock.
  15. We had the same protest on the Islands Race in So Cal a few years ago. Boat with no AIS was DSQ. No time penalty. If this jury finds that WOXI breached the SI and does not DSQ them, I would be very surprised.
