    Heard a rumour this boat has suffered a broken keel ram. Anyone got any details?

    agree Bill E Goat, it's over 15m deep there off Longnose Point/Birchgrove. She hasn't gone aground.

    Nothing revealed in this presentation…..! However I am tired of Ainslie and co talking about changing the rules of the game before they’ve even won the thing! They tried that before Bermuda and look how that turned out.

    Fastnet 2021

    Sodebo looks to have stopped about 12nm from the finish? Been doing circles for a little while... Ran aground or broken something? Edit: they are going again now, must have been battling the tide or lack of wind for a while.

    Bermuda lockdown. I wonder how this will affect things? Maybe they should have run the series in Australia and NZ?

    Thanks MaxHugen. As you said, the articles a bit long and just a few snippets to be taken from it... will be interesting to see what happens with the next Cup in any case.    Thanks again for posting the text.

    Unfortunately this is behind a paywall. Can anybody extract the text? Along with “Everest of sailing” I think this “F1 of sailing” thing gets a bit old.... trotted out every time the America’s cup rolls...

    For Australian viewers the action will be broadcast on Fox Sports/Kayo. Broadcast begins 1pm Thurs.  Presumably any live coverage on youtube or the website will be “geoblocked”?

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Hey Couta, you’ve absolutely hit the nail on the head. It seems ridiculous that a two-handed boat is not eligible to win while everything from a 100 foot diesel-powered canter to a 30 something foot 1904 timber classic (Katwinchar or Maluka) are eligible. The other 600 mile Rolex races manage to...

    That Jim Farmer blogpost is spot on. Will be interesting to see what the future holds for TNZ after this current cycle.

    FWIW Black Jack is back in the country and berthed at Sydney City Marine in Rozelle as of this week. Scallywag remains in Brisbane for now.

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Given these recommendations from World Sailing issued in August, the likelihood of this race in 2020 is minimal in my opinion.... Christmas Day in self isolation with your team would be interesting! F. Period of self-isolation prior to race start Participants in Category 0 and 1 race should...

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    CYCA has just cancelled a planned TP52 “regatta” which was scheduled for sep 5/6 also due to the impact of the above mentioned rules. There were 9 or 10 boats entered. No word yet on the rest of the sailing season...

    They’re looking very good. The bow down attitude of the boat seems to be the way to go, just like the ac50s?!
