    Imagine the size of the British AC museum.... There is no second.

    Put that bow sprit in a museum? I don’t think so. Remember, that boat lost. KZ1 went on display due to novelty factor really. Otherwise we only display winning boats.

    Also, if Rod Davis found it hard to sail, I suspect the rest of us would too.

    No. This is the leading (greatest circulation?) "news"paper in the country. I guess if GD bans you from the media tent, you've got no incentive to get facts right any more?

    “Hmmm, this looks like an interesting article about the Americas Cup, by the NZ Herald, I’ll have a read.” Paragraph 6 ”F’r fuck’s sake”

    This bit can’t be right! I’ve been told by very reliable sources, on these very pages, that this can’t be the case.

    I’m pretty sure this was a defensive manoeuvre they’d been working on in the event they raced Sir Ben.

    You're implying that they have some sort of collective consciousness. In fact, they look for some sort of controversy, just for the sake of clicks. Then, once they discover they're wrong, they double down on it rather than admit incompetence.

    Looks pretty slick. Nice wheelie at ~9:45

    Maintains a seal as the clew rises and falls. It’s beginning to feel like there won’t be many stones unturned.

    Did it change much when you used different jib sizes?

    I see all the ropes and crap on the deck have gone. @Mozzy Sails will be pleased.

    She looks to be foiling at impossibly slow speeds. Incoming tide too.

    It wasn’t even a case of needing to try harder, he didn’t even wear one! I mean, what do you think he thinks we tune in for?!

    Will Any Team Ever Fly A Code Zero?

    Still looks like an option.

    I think it’s telling that they’re flying both sails together, and that the CZ is clearly light weight material. I can only imagine that it’s designed for displacement sailing only, not to initiate foiling.

    Very windy in AKL today. This, stolen from Joan Kirk on the ETNZ Fans Facebook page. Interesting to see no batwing main.

    I need a cup like that.
