A bureaucratic doozy: per the building permit containers are ok as boundary walls / tent supports, but cannot be used for equipment storage. Aucklanders can console themselves :D

  ^ It appears the volume of the containers was not computed in the building permit. So if they are empty, they are considered as structured and it's ok - but the moment they “contain” stuff, the authorized volume is exceeded ...

Yeah, but like with all council bullshit, unless they can check it with aerial imaging from their desks, they won't check, so damn straight the boys will be using them for storage, and none will be the wiser.

Even if they get caught, the guys who put the stuff in them will play the "I didn't know any better card", and the guys who liaised with council in regards to those permits will say "we told them not to use them, not our problem".

And nothing will happen anyway.

If they store the bodies of council bureaucrats and inspectors in the containers along with their equipment,  that'll sort a couple of issues simultaneously...

Suggesting ETNZ "borrowed" one of LR's sponsors for AC35?

Actually pretty happy to see Pirelli jump ship to LR, having companies sponsor teams from their own country is good for the event in my opinion, even if it works against ETNZ.

Interesting that the Prada/Pirelli deal is making huge titles in Italian newspapers, well beyond sailing world. It is both the power of both companies and the "myth" of the Luna Rossa battles in the 90s and 200s in NZ. From a pure sailing point of view it is quite sad to see those big titles and nobody that cares about the great Gold of Tita/Banti in the nacra17 Worlds, but at least it is something sailing related.

In milan we say "piutost che nient l'è megl piutost", which could be translated like "something is still better than nothing".

Bertelli: “Questa è la volta buona per vincere l’America’s Cup”

Il patron di Luna Rossa parla a tutto campo, dalla Coppa alla Tav, al lancio dell’edizione che vedrà la sua sesta sfida. «Vedremo barche veloci, volanti, con vele gonfiabili, con al centro di nuovo l’uomo».

Shows computer sailors are where it is going - imagine averaging 40+ knots for 24hours.

I guess amazing wind generators for the power to power the computers will be leading edge too.

that's what the trickle down from the AC75 will look like, without the outriggers.

No it won't. You would never do that with the AC75 set up. That's an ocean going boat and you would be a complete idiot to try ocean passages with the AC75 set up. Imagine if you hit something at speed with either foil and break it, as has happened to at least one foiling tri. With the AC75 set up, you would not get home. It's that simple. The AC75 configuratioon will never be used offshore.

One foil as keel. You will eat your words one day.

I have no issue accepting that as a “get you home” measure for an inshore boat but a big offshore foiler, in the middle of the Atlantic or Pacific, it will not get you home. Keel down mode is for stability, not for proper sailing.

As there is a video of François Gabart above, these are the photos of his test foils on a smaller boat, I took it a few weeks ago. Interestingly he seems to have only used the second aspect for his big boat.00000219.JPG.8f09d4b4fcde8d544e28d2ddaf43f275.JPG00000220.JPG.84ec0e565c2d796816c738c8a02be631.JPG

Why is that stupid? Attacking Ben Ainslie personally like Max Sirena did as I've read numerous articles about it at the back end of 2017 is equally stupid.

Coutts attacked Dalton, as did Spithill and Ellison. As did many on here. 

Ainslie has also done his fair share of attacking.

They made the class rules with ETNZ, thus they know some loopholes for sure. 

That's not cheating, that's Americas cup since the beginning.

ETNZ carved to the Italians on the Nationality Rules otherwise LR wouldn't be able to sign up Pitbull. And that's precisely the reason I don't like them. Pitbull should be prohibited from sailing any Events in the upcoming AC Cycle. I absolutely cannot stand his bratty behaviour at the Media Conferences.

Get a room guys.

Nav you spent years attacking the last two defenders and "hate" was your speciality. You better get used to the idea that what ETNZ does will also now come under scrutiny.

Are you out of your fckg mind?  The AC75 are novelty boats, not stable enough to go to far from shore.
