  1. When the designers should have their heads down designing (and the best design always wins) INEOS sheds it's design team! When will Ben learn that to win you need a good boat. The UK boats for the last 2 cups have been woeful

  7. I like the new rules. 1. Immediate statement of intention to provide some clarity for those wishing to put together a syndicate. 2. Nationality rules are good. If you think of the teams in NZ over the last few months we always referred to them as the Italians, the Americans, the British (poms) and the Kiwi's.
