    That's a much bigger separation than I would have expected at the foot... No?
  2. Wow. And they used to say that America's Cup racing wasn't exciting!

    Some pics from today. The existing Brigham Wharf looks like it’s being strengthened and ETNZ’s new barn doors are underway. All the previous signage has been removed from the Events Centre with no sign of new signage for now. I *think* some reflective film has been added to the upper levels of the office space, but then I might be imagining that.

    I went for a wander down to Wynyard Wharf yesterday. It looks like work has started on the western bases.

    There's a bit of chat in here (including this) that suggests that ETNZ have a directing hand in the design of these bases. I went to hear Russell Green talk to a number of property professionals recently. It was clear that if it was up to them, the bases would be cheap and easy. They see it (correctly) as an obstacle to teams entering. These controls are imposed by Auckland Council who (correctly) want to avoid errors of the past.

    America's Cup: Hearing for Bases takes just seven hours by Richard Gladwell "The Environment Court has finished a Hearing of the Resource Consent Application necessary to obtain permission to construct new America's Cup facilities in Auckland." https://www.sail-world.com/news/209877/Americas-Cup-Planning-Hearing-finishes-early A lot of commentary in here about base design.
