Congrats TNZ last race done in style.

LR thanks for a good series. Some truly classic races, from a team that gas won the respect of the tough NZ supporters. 

Max - come back. 

Francesco - come back

The young team from LRPP come back

Truly an impressive package from LR..... feel for them and an outstanding display of sportsmanship..... Cekko & JS have gone up heaps in my estimation, I do sincerely hope they come back - what a hell of a base line package to start the next cycle from......

There's no need to start a new thread stating Luna Rossa, Americas Cup holder.

The current Emirates Team New Zealand one is still correct. 

Four more years lads, four more years.

Strider. We know what's its like to be on the receiving end but LRPP can hold their heads high. I was fortunate enough to see the LRPP supporters when LR dispensed with the Americans and then the poms. They were loud in support for their team but the first to honor their competitors. These are the same young people who will be deeply disappointed today. They won my respect.

 If you ever come to NZ I will buy you a beer or vino and I am sure I will not be the only one

Hey Salty I have never abused you for hijacking my TNZ thread, but today I forgive you. Drink plenty like me and enjoy

I want to thank all the amazing people I had the pleasure to meet here on Sailing Anarchy during this America's Cup. It's a huge list. Brits, Irish, Kiwis, fellow Italians, French, Dutch, Americans, Canadians, Brazillians, Germans, Aussies and the rest of the world.

I got richer in meeting you guys. Let's keep in touch!

If by any chance any of you come to Italy, I hope we can meet for a good glass of wine and a dish of pasta.

Brilliant, we get to do this again in Auckland in 4 (or 3?) years.

A lot of things were great this time, hopefully with the class proving out (to most) and a bit of fine tuning (and no pandemics!) it can be even bigger and better next time round.

Impressive sailing by LRPP.

Well done Team NZ!

So, last time Dalton was hidden away in a boat with no signal to receive the desired CoR.

 

Did we miss that part? Or has it changed how CoR is determined?

Great show by ETNZ, sailing a whole regatta in wind strengths where they were likely at their relative weakest, and yet still winning.

And gutsy performance from LR tactically wringing everything they could out of a boat that was a click slower - to the point that they made for an initially tight competition and a final scoreline that somewhat flatters ETNZ.  I really hope that Mr Bertelli stays in the great game, he has been just about the classiest competitor in the whole history of the cup, and it's rather sad he has never (yet) held it aloft.  They are a very strong team and I hope they continue into AC37.

congrats to the Kiwi, best AC of recent history. For once at least, proud to be Italian.

You have every right to be proud, they were the best challenger by some margin

Agree - when the thought of the Italians winning crossed the mind (briefly of course!) earlier in the series, the consolation would be that there could hardly be a more deserving country to look after the cup for a bit.

No Guarantee next Cup will be in Auckland or even NZ, despite TNZ winning.  

It will be in Auckland.

Well done NZ! Great boat well sailed.

Good challenge LR, really hope they win it next time.... even if there is an Australian team.... we can win it the cycle after next!

Couple of things I'd like to see before they pack these beasts away:

Nautical mile record (currently 55.3kts), might be touch and go.

D class record (51.4kts).

24 hour record - 39kts avg, these beasts could beat that on a reach in 10kts.

Would be amazing on a Coastal classic - current race record is only about 24kts average over course.

For AC37 I'd like to see them cut down the class to 45ft length to reduce wind shadow on these tight courses, crew of 5 or 6, additional fixed lift foil under hull to assist getting up on foils before coming clear of water in marginal conditions and more easily internationally campaigned.  Maybe a retractable keel for oh shit moments to allow righting while making foil arms lighter and for lifting and less draggy when submerged (no bulb).

Thank you so much! I really wish I was in Auckland at the Viaduct with the thousands of Kiwi's down there, but work beckoned. So I'm now watching it on TV. It is what it is.

Congratulations Italy and Luna Rossa on a hard fought and well executed campaign. Luna Rossa were a more than worthy challenger. They really forced the Kiwi boys to get the best out of their boat.

But in the end, we did just that.

Looking forward to the future, but for now...Cheers boys!

Yeah I remember 2003, 2007 and 2013, which were not fun years. San Francisco was a real kick in the guts and I really though ETNZ were dead in the water. I really do know what your going through. 
 

The TV were saying that LR were confirmed to coming back, so you might get your revenge. 
 

Losing the cup is not fun, but the Italian fans were a real class act. You guys will be welcomed back with open arms

I must say you Italians put up an amazing fight.  Really worthy opponents!  It is a pity there is no silver medal.  But it is said you will be back!

Congratulations to Luna Rossa and her fans !!

They said they hadn't received any demands.....but were going to provide funding to keep the team together, as long as the cup is held in NZ.

That line can sound so weird to Italians.

That is not how it worked!

The challenge is between yachtclubs, as stipulated in de Deed of Gift, and usually the respective Commodores will be ready to do the deed.

Dalton's or rather ETNZ's influence depends on their contract with the RNZYS.

We will hear soon who the Challenger is, and later what the agreed conditions will be.

Meanwhile we will speculate and spread plenty false info here on SA.
