If GGYC wins, and given that they have said that the Cup needs independent management, who would be the candidates to be on that entity, and who specifically should chair it? (there's alot of questions about structure and terms of reference, but for right now, let's stick with the overall concept and the specific people how might serve it well)

Would really like to hear what Fish has to say on this topic.

Do they think that the AC can ever regain the stature it had before all this

lilly-livered whiny-assed bile-spewing weenie-wanking court litigation ruined the whole fucking thing? <_<

Please discuss the presence of 6.7 in the 5th Feb NoR despite the IJ ruling on 2 Feb stating that it must be removed.

I think the former trustees (NYYC, RPYC, SDYC, RNZYS and hopefully GGYC) could appoint an independent manager/management group to run the regatta and chair mutual consent meetings/agreements without over commercialising the event.

Remember, the AC pretty much turned to shit in the last 5 or so years. Before that, whilst the deck was stacked in favour of the defender, it was winnable, and done with the traditions of the cup upheld, men acting like gentlemen and common sense prevailing. The return of these 3 items will see the AC have its lustre restored.

i only think that will happen if it's light air. >7kts. and only to box out A5 to get to the left side for better pressure (if the wind models are correct)

If you could explore the rumor that LE just bought the Beechwood Estate in Newport and whether this means he intends to bring the Cup back to Newport when he wins? Have to believe that would cement his legacy in American yachting.

6.7 has been removed see here

This is why the new problem is HB only having 1 vote in the now called SNG RC when they vote on conditions. Other RC members are Freddie Meyer & Nicolas Granger

Note TE is BOR rep on the RC boat.

HB confirmed that he is the final decisionmaker today. No worries (we think). He is a straight shooter for sure.

Cocktail Hour tonight is going to be awesome. Worlds top multihull designers!

Qs for the top multihull designers

What do you estimate the relative weights of the two boats are?

Which set of hulls - a5's "pregnant" high aspect ratio hulls or DZ's more tubular Amas do you think generate less drag?

How critical is stiffness of the relative boats to performance

What do you think are the maximum winds each boat can sail in

HOLY SH******!!! Just had one of the most amazing nights anyone could ever wish for thanks to SA (especially clean), our new friend Fili**** at BMWO, and Tom Ehman for being such a gracious host.

For my photos, I unfotunately only post to one spot inside Facebook. Heres the link: http://www.facebook....1728&id=6236964 and watch the video that was Live and I know Clean adn Company are currently editing and about to post. Hope they don't cut the first 15 minutes where I bullshit with JC about earlier today while we wait for the important people to show in the Press room. Can't beleive I met some of my sailing idols tonight.
