    'Small Margins' is the new 'Fore Ourselves' ;-)

    I clearly remember all the NZ media hype about NZL82, as well. And we all know how well that turned out.

    Tolerable, perhaps. ;-)

    I'd say, Grael's nose was pretty damn reliable, based on his CV. His kids are pretty handy on the water too.

    For me, Black Magic winning the Cup in 1995, followed by a successful Defence in 2000.

    A better question would be, "Which victory was sweetest". Just sayin.

    Great story, Paddy. Thanks for sharing it.

    It is true, GD can be combative. But I admire his convictions and how he stands his ground. Results are what count. There are plenty of ordinary people in the world, but few extraordinary ones. Yes. Sir Peter was pretty special.

    I thought foiling dead down wind (especially with both main foils immersed) was one of LR's tricks? Don't tell me the Kiwis have copied that bloody trick too.

    Just as well your Rhino dermis is up to it, mate.

    Hasn't worked for me, damn it. ;-)

    Yes. Given his successful track record in the AC, he'd be unlikely to take the long route to regain Cup glory.

    Well, it is true that we've one or two distractions and the build-up has been a bit hit and miss. But I think the usual Cup fever will return, especially if ETNZ starts racking up a few wins in the Match.

    Ha. Reverse that image, lose the city scape and dockyards and that could almost be a Rangitoto Island flyover (through squinted eyes.) How apt.

    Topped with mind-altering shrooms no doubt. ;-)

    Ha. They say, "What doesn't kill ya, makes you stronger".

    I wonder if the LRPP set-up and Jimmy would keep it all together when chopped in the box, or passed on the course? Hopefully, INEOS will get close enough, so we can find out.

    Yep. You gotta keep nibbling. And remember, that shit keeps cooking, even after it's out of the bath.

    LRPP for the, Prada Cup. ETNZ for the Match.
