    Mmh ... https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=No Holes Barred ... in fact, that might be more entertaining than waiting two years for silly monomaran races ...

  5. Not for the first time, what strikes me is: the guy is some sort of industrialist, owns a mini-maxi and has won a few regattas - and yet he's as convincing as a third-rate used car salesman ...

    FareVela now considering this fake news https://farevela.net/2018/06/05/americas-cup-adelasia-di-torres-ci-prova-con-navigo/ They have contacted Duccio Colombi, Adelasia's nominated sailing team manager, and he's unaware of a formal challenge having been issued/accepted

    I beleve it was legit vaporware until June 4 - news agency piece about a vague engineering support deal with the Navigo consortium (superyachts in Tuscany, think Perini Navi) http://www.ansa.it/toscana/notizie/2018/06/04/coppa-america-accordo-adelasia-navigo_e3e1169b-66e5-45d9-bd5d-4454e6d95af8.html The latest release, instead, has got to be a fake news fabrication. Is this a first for the Cup?

    ^ Interesting stuff (other than considerations on islanders' endogamy negatively affecting newscasters' height): - LR's first AC75 will only be splashed in May/June next year, but a "prototype" boat (??) will be sailed in the near future - full team complement of 200 people - confirmed they'll move to AKL only from mid-2020 - they'll organize again Open Days, but for a limited number of visitors each time (SR, don't hold your breath) - of course, should they win, Cagliari yadda yadda yadda ...
