When does the leadership of GGYC wake up?

10 September 2014 - 09:15 PM

After reading all the various reports of yesterdays utterly pathetic press conference in London, when exactly are the officers and directors of GGYC going to wake up to their responsibility as the Trustee of the America's Cup?  Have they no shame, or was it bought and paid for with a paint job and some furniture?


Is there a way they can be nudged, suggested, coerced, or forced to do the right thing and do something to get Russell to deal with the reality of a market that is simply never going to fund his WSL dream, and which does not value the AC in remotely the same terms as he does.



Oracle rumors

Anyone else hear that Oracle has laid off a bunch of designers?  Or at least not renewed contracts recently.  


Also heard that there will be a deal with Airbus for design work.

Alameda for AC 35 campaign

27 July 2014 - 12:54 AM

At the suggestion of Stingray, here's a thread for us to show our support for Alameda to host AC 35.


Like they say in Chicago, vote early and vote often.


Drop Mayor Gilmore a note and let her know you want AC 35 in her city.  Tell her from where you are in the world.


Mayor Marie Gilmore





Does anyone here support Coutts?

23 July 2014 - 05:44 PM

Is there anyone in this forum that still supports Russell Coutts and his idea of how to run the America's Cup?


Does anyone have an ear to the ground to know if Ainslie and ETNZ really support him?
