    I assumed the name was a strategic thing linking team GBR with the Americas Cup to filter the sailors into commercial yachting.... I assumed wrong! Schoolboy

    Good luck to that man, if him building a winning AC boat is the best that can come of the UK campaign then I will be happy. Nice man,,,, quality builder... great innovator... A pillar in the UK boat building community!

    Mega tons of money would get me well stuck in.... There is clearly an opening to other larger projects coming up shortly due to Greens going down the pan. Jason is a smashing chap and would do a fantastic job.... Who wouldnt want to build a winning cup boat?!

    Who would build the big boats? Is Jason Carringtons new facility suitable for this?

    Ben knows best... lets watch this space! I look forward to seeing the Gladiator crew lineup for the TPs, surely he cant let him down that much...

    I bet the TP owner Langley will be happy about that.... Re-branded all of his boats and built up a new squad prior to a busy season and now...... dropped... I would have thought this is the one boat you would keep, work on communication/teamwork in a mono with similar crew numbers and try people out. Surprised as other teams have made the effort to run with a TP

    I am far from writing the team off, in fact as you have well put they are in good stance to do some serious damage at the next cup. My question is whats to like? The team hardly comes across as likeable...

    You summed up my opinion on the campaign in one short sentence... Nice work!

    how fast is it?

    Seems the boats fast.... Good crew on board, some pretty famous old faces appearing throughout! Whats the class reaction? is everyone putting in a new order for one? Whats the score with both Pace and GOF? Owners not on board?

    Whilst this news is a bit of a sorry state for a team which has focused heavily on the green/sustainability aspects to an organisation, we need to remember that the team was setup to bring the cup home back to the UK for the first time. £110 Million is a hefty investment which gives the new team what it needs to win the cup in theory. I cant see Greenpeace putting up this amount of cash!!

    how fast is it?

    Costings would be interesting.... Great looking boat and brilliant developments, as normal this type of design will filter down pretty quickly and it take a real innovator to push the button on it. Good on you Niklas

    "Williams" ?? This was a clip from the new video on FB... who is that? Either the old youth helm or Ian Williams?
