    Did someone mention Thomas Lipton? The tea tycoon who was 'the world's best loser' 23 September 2018 The Americas Cup It is the world's oldest international sporting trophy.

In 1851 they sailed the schooner to the Isle of Wight at the invitation of the Royal Yacht Squadron for a race - and took home an ornate silver trophy. A few years later they dedicated it to international competitive sailing. As a boy Lipton was entranced by the ships arriving in Glasgow, making models and floating them in the city's ponds. Lipton now joined the world of elite yachting, in his quest for the sport's ultimate accolade.................... https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-45548495?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=facebook&ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_campaign=bbcnews

    I am happy that LR ended up with a prime spot. It demonstrates LR's commitment to the Cup in Akld. They are a first class brand and will add incredible support to bringing the Cup back to being premium sailing regatta after our excursion to the chips and sunscreen event in BDA.

    Artemis?

    Are they? Haven't heard anything from them but last time they were so into "we are in this for the long haul" that I would suspect they will be there when the gun goes off.

    "No one claims he had the 'reins' in AC34, the helm and the mic' yes" And don't forget he held the sheet for the mainsail as well during manoeuvres

    Can't see JS being skipper. His performance last cup was just not up there with Blair and he has this thing about his way or no way (ie not shedding weight to help the grinders) I can see a backup role and maybe sailing coach advisory type role.
