  1. Didn't Gabe Newell do the same and move a lot of his people to NZ? There must be something in the air that's attracting billionaires
  2. I can't read the article but he's certainly motivated and has significant resources to mount a serious challenge. And he has assembled a stable of highly talented sports people across multiple disciplines beyond sailing. That will make the approach taken interesting and probably different from previous challengers.
  3. And without unlimited budgets, you can only fund each campaign which ETNZ has done well. It's the follow on investment by all the team principals that's been compromised by the 1 v 1 murmurings which excludes other teams.
  4. And he doesn't have Billionaire status or pockets. Wealth for sure, but not of the level that can sustain ETNZ.
  5. Yes, that would be some adventure
  6. Now an honorary Italian, when in Rome, do as the romans do.
  7. Ironically, Tommy Lipton was denied membership of the RYS until shortly before his death. Despite building a very successful businessman, he was not considered upper class.
  8. With nationality rules, not far but then, I wonder if any of them want to stray from the collective that has been very successful.
  9. Well while you're at it, stop by Ireland first and I'll sort you out for whiskey, Guinness and rashers n sausages
  10. No, he was interviewed after the final race on the dockside and made the statement about them being warriors. i don't think he gives many interviews but I don't know.
