Just a heads up to IV - torrent took awhile to start, but now running with 4 peers (1 NZL, 2 CAN, 1 USA). Up to 53% DL right now. Thank you, and Rudder.

Thanks. My US and Netherlands seedboxes both have it entirely so it should be pretty quick for everyone now.

Looks like Michael Douglas has lost interest in the AC already in his role as unoffical ambassador and spokescelebrity for the event. Just as the challenger finals start, he's turned up in Montréal for the Canadian F1 GP. So much for his family's 400 year history with Bermuda and all that. Will sell out to the more exciting event at the drop of a hat!

not that I've heard of but having said that, I have heard of YouTubers recently getting copyright strikes just...JUST... for using the press video footage! what on earth do you think they'd do if we started uploading full replays of the races themselves probably get the channel banned! the way it's being done now by torrents they cannot stop they are powerless to stop it, and I all I can say to that is..

It appears no one from ACEA is sending takedown notices to Youtube, judging from the number of pirate racing posts that have stayed up.

That's probably something more personal; ACEA goes after people they don't like, and Geoff (WOW) doesn't really follow the US Copyright rules.  Look for America's Cup on Youtube and you'll find dozens of copies of the actual racing so far, scattered around and getting no notices.  Do the same search for UFC or NBA and you don't find those, 'cause those actually have value to their broadcasters unlike the AC, which can't even beat a replay of bicycle racing in the cable channel ratings war.

SPOILER ALERT - avoid below if you havent seen Day 2 LV final races 

 

Thx Rudder_NZ for all the support with this. Now I have a really big question to ask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   

Is it possible to have the races uploaded in such a manner so that we dont know how many there are tomorrow??? If there is only one or two we know NZ has won before we start watching. I am no IT geek so dont know what the options are or how much work it is. If it cant done I will just have to watch and convince myself that the other races weren't run for some reason!!! :)

Appreciate the uploading regardless. Thx

We are a fussy bunch -:) ... but hey when you get it for free you want the best- right -:) ... should not be too hard just to post each after each race .( as long as you can see through the tears...)   .. and lets HOPE we only need one ... not going to Tegal tonight  ( to count the chickens  .....)  -:)  Great work Rudder ... many thanks you your work, hope others have sent you some drinking money ... if Team NZ do make it through do you think that Sky will loosen the grip and let us watch for free? ... maybe Bill could pay for it to be Free to Air ? .... a point of National pride right ...

The simplest way to do that, would be to put all three in the same video file, so it's one long video labelled day 3.
You still get an idea from the length of the video, but wouldn't know if it was one very slow race or 3 fast ones for example...

Personally, I'm happy with whatever is straightforward for Rudder, that guy is the highlight of this AC and has made it such a great event for me.
I'd have missed pretty much the whole thing if it wasn't for the great he's done.

when they eventually race, will it be considered the same race ( again) or a new race. SO, will the teams enter the start box from the same sides, port/starboard as they did before ??

one would think so ... it is still just race 7 ... so sad to see Team NZ so close but still so far .... but that sort of conditions is not really what this racing is about ... lets hope this is not a replay of San Fran.... Thanks Rudder

Thanks again Rudder & others, great stuff! 

- Can't get 2nd race today to download (overloaded, try again later) 

- Torrent file just hangs (gathering torrent info, please wait) 

I guess they are getting oversubscribed, or too many leechers vs seeders. 

Anyone else found having this issue? Or found a work around? Trying to see it before I hear the result...

I've got 11 seeds at the moment and I need to go offline in 10 minutes.  Hopefully, it will pause and restart when I am back on wifi.  This is slow going.  I'm new to this whole torrent and seed thing.  Maybe I need to check under the hood and make some adjustments in settings.?. I'm using Folx on a Mac.

Cheers

I think posting magnet links is not a good idea as it is accessible to those outside of sailing anarchy. Or if there are magnet links they should be contained within a file that needs to be downloaded.

I had this problem yesterday when I was trying Transmission client. Ditched that garbage and went back to µtorrent again and now downloading problem-free again from 55 seeders. My advice is if you can't find any sources and you're using Transmission as your BT client, then get rid of it.

Rudder.... As Tina Turner said.... Your'e simply the best!

I guess that shows how old I am.

 

Can't thank you enough.  All the BS legalese made watching this a nightmare here in the US.  If it got in your DVR... and they didn't screw it up  GREAT.  But if you missed it..  oh no... not available for online viewing, or not available for 'on demand'.  Not sure what the asshole lawyers were trying to accomplish by restricting access to a pretty esoteric event.  All they accomplished was fewer views for their advertisers... and pissed off  viewers hoping TNZ would win.

 

If God watches yacht racing on TV... he's rooting for TNZ so these imbeciles will be made redundant.

F1 or not, the commercialization of this thing is just nor running smooth.  They should be working to make the audience so happy that hey wan't to be associated with their brands... not pissed off at them for restricting access.

Hey Team ... don't you think it is time that Sky broadcast the finals Free to Air or at least Prime did a replay from 7 am each race day... I have written to Sky and Prime to see if they might actually have a tiny touch of national pride and stop thinking of the almighty $... also the PM ... maybe the Government could chip in a bit to make it free for ALL KIWI's to watch ... like in the red sox days ?

So we should all bombard Sky and Prime and see if we can guilt them into a little national pride ... here is the link ....https://skytv.custhelp.com/app/contactus/emailus/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xNDk3MzIwMDQ2L3NpZC9mVXpSWlcxbDEzV1AzSkkxc3RqT3hxMXZ4bUUlN0VnbXh4VFJJMHZuU1BNQ3h1WmIxWFY4MEs3V0ZFdzI0TGpCckZWX2NpaTB5VFZBcTl4NXRsdzRKMU9keW55M0wzVkI4R0lBdndnVm10TDU3dHNaWWNKYnY5bFBpQSUyMSUyMQ%3D%3D

Everyone involved is only there for the very short term. Nobody is playing the long game or looking to build a long lasting legacy. Unfortunately that's the way of the world these days and you're not going to change it. It's not just sailing, it's every sport. Fast four tennis, Twenty/20 cricket (or as it's become officially known because 'Twenty/20' was too high brow for modern generations - Big Bash), the ridiculously juvenile named V8 Supercar racing, E-Sports (whatever the F that is) and just about every other sport you can possibly think of. They've all been dumbed-down to be as short as possible and pack as much 'action' in all the time at the expense of strategy, patience & tactics. To appeal to the ADHD generation, it has to be all-action, dancing girls, fireworks and explosions ALL the time. Every sport these days is trying to become the equivalent of Stadium Monster Truck Racing with a heavy does of WWE thrown in on top. If it doesn't make a 4 y.o. boy stand up on his chair and scream in excitement until he's blue in the face, then it doesn't count.

This is the market the America's Cup is trying to tap because everyone involved wants to become multi-millionaires as quickly as possible and then leave. They've concluded the fastest way of achieving this is to sell it off to pay-TV broadcasters as much as possible using the success of the San Francisco event as the selling brochure. It's classic 'pump+dump' strategy used in the stock market. The pump was the unexpected success of the San Fran 2013 cup, now we're experiencing the dump part of the cycle where everyone cashes in but what's left of the commodity afterwards is an empty husk of nothing. Nobody will care about that though because they'll all move on to become property developers building holiday resorts in Miami.

One thing's for sure, ETNZ will not beat Oracle no matter what happens. Larry Ellison can't let NZ mess up all the above plans after the years he's put in lining the nest for his mates Russell, Iain & Jimmy, no, no no. Mark my words, when we see Oracle again at the start of the finals, they will have a completely new boat. It will have the same cyclor pump system that NZ has now, it will have the inverted gullwing F4U Vought Corsair foils and they will probably change 3/4 of the crew for US Olympic cyclists trained by Lance Armstrong & the 'doctors' from the US Postal Service Tour de France race team.

Even if all that doesn't work, they'll just do what they did in San Francisco 4 years ago and change the rules of the game mid-way through the event from a best of 13 races to a best of however many races it takes until Jimmy is in the lead and then it's over. It's not as ridiculous as it sounds. That's exactly what happened in 2013. Right up until ETNZ got to their 8-1 lead, it was widely and loudly reported it was a best of 17 race series. Then someone actually sat down and worked out the mathematics of what 8 race wins to NZ meant in a best of 17 race series with a 2 point penalty to the other competitor for cheating and realised it meant NZ had already won mathematically as there weren't enough races left for the US to get more points. At that stage, no-one heard the words '17 race series' ever again and it very quietly became a 19 race series instead. It's very hard to kick goals when one competitor has your posts and runs away with them just as you're lining up to take a kick.

Don't be at all surprised if this 'best of 13 race' finals becomes a 15, 17 or even another 19 race series by the time they're done. It'll be however many it takes for Jimmy to take the lead, then it'll be the 'Greatest Sporting Comeback Moment in History' all over again. Manufactured excitement like only modern sports can do!

Can someone help me understand how to watch these files? I clicked on the first race today and the link opened and played the race just fine, but the second race opens and just says "unable to process this file".

Any help would be much appreciated, I have no other way to watch the races and I really appreciate the efforts people have made here.
