And, just what is your point?

It was about time to do a new Thread. The other Thread had too much non-releated Team UK Stories and Comments. @2Newts also supported this move.

Unrelated stories and comments?! This is unacceptable!

Ben Ainslie:

“With no Youth America’s Cup planned for the 36thAmerica’s Cup the INEOS TEAM UK are still committed to providing opportunities into the America’s Cup for talented young British sailors. Both Oli and Ben have worked incredibly hard to get here and we look forward to having them as part of our team. I would like to thank everyone involved, in particular Rob Andrews and Andrew Walsh for managing and coaching such a superb programme ”

Oli Greber:

“I’m chuffed to bits to secure an INEOS Rebels place, I have massively progressed and learnt so much over the last 3 years and to achieve the goal of a place on the senior team is amazing, I have dreamt about being an America’s Cup sailor since being a young sailor. However, the hard work has just started. I need to work really hard to fulfil my position within the team.”

Greber & Ben Cornish (27) have been promoted to the INEOS Sailing Senior Team.

More Sailors to come over the next two years. Looks like the Rebels Programme will get smaller.

And you think this will be different here, just because it's a new thread?

Well, they can go to the other Thread then. As I said it was about time. The other Thread also had AC35 & AC36 mixed up over and under which was very bad.

Well, A4E thought things would be different with a new name...

Is this his/her new persona? 

Obviously ran away from the Volvo threads to cry for a while before the relaunch. :P
