    2017 Garda Moth worlds

    Burton is another who could surprise a few and should be good for a top 10. He's been putting in some solid hours on Lake Macquarie over the last 12 months or so.

    Future of the AC (when ETNZ wins)

    Considering NZ is the biggest beneficiary of having the boats built remotely, Constructed in Country isn't an option. What would Core Composites do with their $17m grant from the NZ Government?

    Best Helmsman in AC35 so far

    Slingers would also be a very good investment for a new syndicate.

    The Presser

    I'm not talking about direct collaboration and data sharing agreements. I'd rather see an outright ban there. Its the indirect and observational stuff that could assist the newcomers. Hence the locational aspect if my comment. It wasn't my main point though; BAR lacked the apparent wind and...

    The Presser

    I get what you are saying, but it is one way to reduce the development curve of new teams to bring them up to a more competitive position. If we want the number of challengers to grow and for some more competition at the pointy end, some incidental collaboration is one way to help the newer...

    The Presser

    Ben does make a good point, but let's be honest. They are well funded, and they have some great sailors in the team, but not necessarily the type of sailors required to get the best out of these boats, especially straight up boat speed. Guys like Burling and Outteridge are a class above when it...

    It's just plain unstrayan to support the kiwis'. Ever. Plus nath, goobs, and a crap load of other aussies in the program.

    Depends on what side of the ditch you are on ... most Aussies would be backing AR over NZ.

    +1 No options or external routing / weather info for me either. Last time I went the whole hog; custom scripts, Zezo, very little sleep (especially in the last week) ... it got old very quickly.

    Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Unfortunately there won't be much investment in multis' on the hope that they will eventually be included. Over time, these pesky baby boomers blocking the way will fall off the perch permitting some more progressive people to take ownership of the race. Until then ... well, there's always rum.

    I really don't see the point of stealth out of the top 100; we're all just battling for sloppy seconds. That said, hutspot, I'm coming after your arse. :)
