  1. Ratcliffe and ETNZ already have a team of 30 people carrying out design work so when does the 50 MI USD start? when the protocol is announced? I understand that Luna Rossi and Alinghi have also started employing people, are their costs included if they enter AC37? How do you account for the costs incurred for the writing of the protocol? ETNZ are designing and building hydrogen powered chase boats, where do these costs fall?
  2. Ratcliffe has previously stated that he doesn't want to buy the cup, assuming that he his a man of his word the threat that you describe is not a tool that he would use.
  3. That's a very sad story for a young woman, I hope she can get her life back.
  4. Given that they are trying to save money, I thought that they would get rid of they grinders altogether and use electric motors, more power, less cost.
  5. People over 12 years of age are considered eligible for the jab .. https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-data-and-statistics/covid-19-vaccine-data/covid-19-vaccination-uptake-rates-across-nz Auckland is nearly there, just waiting for people to get their second jab.
  6. As you are medical practitioner I can see why you don't like people bringing politics into medicine. You seem to be unaware that this is about the pandemic which is as much about politics as it is about medicine. We all have access to the same medicine but the results differ from country to country and this is because the politics are different in the various countries and that leads to success or failure, not medicine.
  7. That might be true but it can never be proven because most deaths are from the unvaccinated and the vaccinated tend to stay alive. You can't compare today's statistics with last years statistics because treatment has improved as well as vaccination.
  8. Ratcliffe stated that he does not want to buy the cup, there is clearly a difference between him and Ellison who doesn't mind spending to crush the opposition compared to Ratcliffe who gets his satisfaction from winning a fair contest.
  9. First you alleged that the NZ Govt. recommended 2 weeks between jabs, when I proved that you were wrong about that you claim that you were answering @TheDragon sorry about that, perhaps you should have responded to @TheDragon post rather than mine because some of us are not mind readers.
  10. It has nothing to do with politics, pfiver have always recommended 3 to 6 weeks as being an acceptable gap between jabs. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/second-shot.html
  11. The current recommendation in NZ for the second jab pfiver is 3 weeks, https://covid19.govt.nz/covid-19-vaccines/how-to-get-a-covid-19-vaccination/getting-your-second-dose/#when-to-get-your-second-dose It was originally extended when NZ had a supply issue and it was considered more important for people to get their 1st jab to make better use of the limited supplies of pfiver than that get the second jab. Now that the supply issue has been resolved they have reverted to the original 3 week space between jabs.
  12. You must be living in la la land if you think the money that the Government is using to prop up business via wage subsidies is being spent on property investment. Wages continue to be spent by the vast majority of the population on the consumables needed to stay alive. Some business will fail, as they have always done, and that will happen with or without the support of Government, specially in the travel and hospitality industries which has diminished just because we have a pandemic which discourages people from doing the things they used to do. The property market is drive
  13. The NZ Govt. does it for business reasons, in pre-pandemic days there was an expectation that 300+ members of their teams and their families would be living in Auckland and paying GST on their purchases plus an influx of super yachts that would be spending about a million each plus the fans who want to seen the event. As we now know most of that did not happen and probably accounts for the Govt, reluctance this time around. In the case of SF it was advertising the country for the tourists and to a lessor extent at Bermuda which was less attractive from our point of view.

  15. I think ETNZ's development of an AI system which could run the simulator while the boys were out sailing was an advantage that the challengers did not have. The AI system was able to find new ways to sail the boat and was able to compete against the crew who found that they needed to learn from the AI system the best way to sail the boat.
