    Alright everyone. 4 Feb 2020, the day I was finally emotionally ready to re-watch the 35th Cup. Still stressful even though we won it

    Maybe they should run an invitational team. Get some Sail GP folks to experience a real boat hahaha

    The Dolphin will be doing all the flashy promo work in exotic locations like Cagliari and Plymouth. This will be doing the behind the scenes hard work haha

    Tidbits from the press release: "While Te Aihe is being shipped 60 days either way to and from Europe, by launching Te Kāhu now, Emirates Team New Zealand plan to continue their on-water development programme uninterrupted." "Emirates Team New Zealand are now in the process of packing up and preparing Te Aihe for shipping to Cagliari in preparation for the first ACWS event in April" About the name: ‘Te Kāhu’ was named by Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei translated as ‘The Hawk’ The hawk majestically glides and soars at high speeds in the wind. It has great vision and foresight and stealthily swoops in on its prey.

    The launch photos are very interesting. They've basically designed the hull at a 75ft scale then rounded it off early. It's got a flat under-nose section *strokes beard thoughtfully*

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    The ETNZ statement is very interesting. Possibly trying to draw some opinions out from the other challengers.

    Definitely missing the sprit... Maybe now it's summer they don't feel the need to use a code zero? Or aero testing?

    Can't see if this has been posted so here's an update on the wind limits shit fight. Frankly I have no truck for a limit of 20. Pathetic. https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/americas-cup/118390692/americas-cup-team-new-zealand-and-challengers-in-major-dispute-over-wind-limits-for-auckland-2021

    Just saw the latest US team video and while trying to be fair to them, they do look fairly unstable...
