Some day he'll make the AC Hall of Fame.

I hope that at that HOF ceremony they show the great photo of GD grinding on board Aotearoa, neck veins bulged.

If any of you have seen this weeks Mainsail you would truly see just how much NZ is STILL behind their squad . The video footage of those crowds in shed 10 dieing as they watched those final races is really astounding . The overwhelming recepton they gave ETNZ on their return home after losing showed just how much class they have and love for their team . I wanted oracle to win , mostly to shut up some of the unbelievably obnoxious " fans " on this forum but I knew how much this really ment to the true fans of ET and that tempered my joy a good bit. Grant said as No 1 guy on the team the failure falls on him . He's taking responsibility for the results and obviously maintaining his fan support . I look forward to seeing ET back in the game for AC 35 along with MOST of their fans :)

Giving Grumpy this  award is like giving Hitler an award for services to humanitarian rights.

 

There were so many better candidates than this Loser.

 

My god! this is a disgrace to many great sailors who have achieved so much and actually won something.

Twice winner of the Whitbread (once as skipper/campaign director), 4 other podium finishes in that race all as skipper/campaign director.

 

He also skippered and won the The Race on maxi catamaran Club Med.

 

Not bad for a loser :)

once winner as Skipper in a 70 foot ketch v 60 foot Sloops. Hardly a tough race.

 

Skippered Club med against two dogs that crashed and burned.

 

 

So basically...   not a win in a serious competitive event with equal  hardware.

 

 

or .... a loser/choker

He is well known in the Wellington area for his sea sickness. Gets crook on the ferry apparently. Tastes his lunch twice as soon as they clear the harbour. Don't think he would have been much use on a Whitbread.

https://givealittle....ause/teamnzac35

Is that it?... fukk! That is pathetic.

Even if that was 160,000 people at $1.00 each that is still less than 2% of the population...
And it is probably just 5-10,000 people which means 0.2%.

Wow what a majority,

Sorry but the spin doctors have people like you believing anything.

99% of Kiwis do not give a shit about ETNZ or AC. Sure there was good TV patronage during the cup. But that was because there was nothing else on and kiwis needed something to cheer about... oh and it meant they had a excuse to be late to work...

Which explains NZ's very poor productivity stats!

So the 1.2 million people who tuned in to watch the races was 1% of the population?

 

Wow!

 

I had never realized that the equivalent of the population of the US was stacked on those few islands.You really must be cramped.

What crap.

Club Med finished in 62 days and LP, on Innovation Explorer, 2 days later. The only real difference between the 2 boats was a storm sail. Cam Lewis on Team Adventure was behind.

Well I'm biased on that one, but am curious where you draw the line and why. I'm not convinced there is a methodology to all of your opinions, but I'm willing to be wrong about that.
