    Looks to me more like load shifting from steering inputs/waves/wind load changes. Those boards aren't locked in with cement after all...

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sailing/news/article.cfm?c_id=106&objectid=11929785 America's Cup: Old rivals set to take on Team New Zealand
  6. There is set to be a new sponsor for the 2021 edition of the America's Cup. Italian sailing website Vela is reporting that Italian fashion brand Prada - one of the key supporters of sailing team Luna Rossa - is set to take over from Louis Vuitton as a main naming rights sponsor. According to Vela, the challenger series will be renamed as the Prada Cup, of which the winner will then race Team New Zealand in the America's Cup. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11924593

    I like this: " GA had a twinkle in his eye when he was talking about plans for the next cup defence in terms of the boats they're planning. "You ain't seen nothing yet". Can hardly wait for that news.
  9. Right. GD said there will no 80% rule. There will be some rules relating to that however saying that "a challenge from Japan must be Japanese" so there will be some 'made in country' rules and I would guess some amount of citizenship required. He doesn't want to restrict good sailors from sailing however. 80% means a lot of Aussies and Kiwis are out of the cup then.

    What about Team Trump. Make America Great Again perfect slogan. He's got the dough. The boat could have a gold plated mast, and TRUMP printed all the fuck over it. Paint it orange with a yellow wing.

    So what is thought about Coutts in NZ? Bastard traitor? Hero gone bad? Still a hero for winning it for NZ the first time?

    GD speaking the good words, bring back fairness, ethics, and a level playing field. No more stacked decks. It's one of the biggest reasons I was rooting for ETNZ as an American. Good on him and the Kiwis!
