    2 days at most (Cam mounts, cabling etc, testing) .....but remember the Cams would have been assigned to the Youth Americas Cup after the semi had finished between Swe and SBTJ.

    Highly unlikely as the TV Cams were removed from Japan boat after the semi series had ended and it would not have been a simple process to put them back on that quickly.

    Doesn't mention BAR being in the mix http://oracle-team-usa.americascup.com/en/news/310_-No-one-is-going-to-walk-away-with-it-.html

    Artemis?

    Artemis?

    A possibility not to be excluded. But I think it's more likely the semis will be between LR adn AR. GD has already stated that if they win the RR's they will nominate 2nd place to race the Semi and meet whoever in the LV Finals.

    Artemis?

    AR's AC34 campaign is an example of governance and management failure, IMO. A failure stemming from poor management decisions and a failure to deal with management weakness. The only waste of money would be not completing the boat and getting her to sail. Artemis plans to be back for AC35. This is their first time out and they aren't going home with their tails between their legs, they are pushing on despite what has gone wrong.They NEED to see this through.They made a bad decision on which way to go, foil or no foil, and the designer wasn't the best pick for THIS project. What happened was a cascading series of events that were due to those two decisions. All the armchair helmsmen out there have no idea what goes on in a project of this magnitude but find it is easy to "be the expert" and second guess and worse disparage the people who were responsible for the project. I don't see anyone running out to recruit you guys to run a campaign. It's easy to point fingers when you have nothing on the line. If the jury had agreed with Artemis and OR about how to measure daggerboards, ETNZ and LR could very well be in a similar position and AR would look like the smart guys. AR will be a strong contender next time around as they have learned the hard lessons in this series. In the AC there isn't a next time....it's now or never. Good luck to Artemis - they need every bit of it, hopefully NO has been watching all the replays on you tube.

    I think so If they can repair the other damaged wings then they are fine - but as it stands this is most likely wing 3, and the last one they can build. OR too are on their last wing as W1 was smashed in the PP.

    Artemis?

    the NZ Herald doesn't print apologies - their M.O is "if it bleeds it leads"...i wouldn't call it a newspaper - more like fire starter.

    Artemis?

    Artemis will not be sailing for awhile Main beam is broken Oh well that's all right then - thought it might have been serious Thanks for the word - J-Bird. Care to elaborate a bit? They said that the tow test would secondarily include 'loading her up a bit' or words to that effect. How does one go about that exactly in the absence of any motive force? Cranking on the 'pseudo wing' (white pole) stays? and foils Yes sad to hear that - hopefully LR don't have any issues, it would be great to see at least 2 x 72's sailing and they will probably be in the same harbor. Sooner Artemis get sailing the better!!

    Are Artemis sailing or is the boat damaged?
