    Remember, it's slated to be an extreme first boat. It's just been launched. There is probably lots that isn't cup legal at this point. Plenty of time to change things yet.

    How many challengers will there be?

    Hi guys, I've got a couple of questions. The first, and most important is related to the late entries. There is a late entry fee that I believe is due on New Years day 2019, does that signal the final cut off for entries, even if they may not immediately announce their intentions? Second question is dg_sailingfan now accepted as A4E incognito. If so, I can safely ignore that users comments. Thanks in advance.

    For those that the BBC doesn't block here is the new BAR on BBC South Today. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/sailing/45377666 Interesting to note the new team owner gives Big Ben about 20 seconds, before taking over the piece. And then commits to maximum funding. Is the Cup coming home?

    Is that all? Come on Grant, you said you wanted to do right for the cup. Larry's poodles are now Luna Rossa's it seems. Poor, very poor.

    Teams?

    Just been reading this https://www.sail-world.com/news/207238/American-Magic-released-Sailing-Team-Roster Not sure I'm that impressed with the crew list, but what did attract my attention was the phrase 'Team Principal Roger Penske' not seen that he was involved before and if anyone knows about winning races it's Roger. Seen a lot of noise about lack of challengers, but I can't really see where any more 'Quality' challenges can come from. As it stands after the financial meltdown in 2008 into 9 the world has changed a great deal, so difficult to get back to the numbers of 87, 03, & 07. Pretty much every sport is feeling the same pinch.

    Teams?

    Hi everyone. So no real surprises. RZNYS, RYS, NYYC and Luna Rossa as CoR. 4 heavy weights of the AC that'll do for me, although an entry from RPYC would be nice as well. Just don't let EB or LE in, at any cost.

    This seems very fishy to me I looked at the website https://www.adelasiaditorres.com/en/ and all the text was garbage saying repeatedly 'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.' So either I have a nasty virus on my PC, the site has been hacked or it's total scam. RNZYS need to clarify this ASAP. Doing no favours to anyone like that.
