    Emirates Team New Zealand.

    Watching hem come back from the back paddock yesterday, yes, there were definitely some minor stability issues, a bit of hobby-horsing, a little tippy at times, but as they say in the video, it's a new driver and brand new boat, so still some learning and some tuning to be done.

    AC40

    She looked a bit tippy at times, but still being sorted I guess. Once she gets up and goes, she looks very sweet and slippery

    They are way out the Back Paddock unfortunately, but got the first part of the exercise. Hopefully might catch some sailing later.

    The AC 37 has started, news and rumours

    All the available girls have given up and gone home, the beer's run out, somebody's repeatedly chucking up on the dancefloor and the DJ is playing the same f***ing song over and over again ....

    The AC 37 has started, news and rumours

    Wow, 13 pages, a frenzy of outraged indignation over something that hasn't even been decided yet? This must set some new kind of SA record??! (... probably not :wacko: )

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    Thanks Waka. I'm retired and a bit old to be launching into any serious stuff. I have some other time-consuming interests, so will just pack the camera away for the meantime and wait for the next AC boat to sail past North Head ...  :D

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    I was just about to post that, thanks 45Roller. No I wasn't out that day, but the video gives a great  idea of what it's like. Slightly wetter and rockier on the TV Cats mind you! I have been lucky enough to meet some of the photographers, all seem like nice people and boy do they work hard...

    AC37 Broadcast Requests

    Somewhere (on one of the Behind The Scenes videos?) I saw that they were working hard on that issue through the Cup, and said that it even affects the crew comms on Te Rehutai.

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    Ha! Just found out that Andy, the driver of the media Photo Boat that I went out on back in December, is Blair Tuke's proud Dad! He told me that he came down from Kerikeri to go out as a Prada volunteer for the Cup, but I never clicked. Photos by Chris Cameron.

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    In that final leg ETNZ took off like a rocket, heading further down than LR (who followed them) and finishing 500m ahead. That was pretty impressive.

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    Huge spectator fleet out there already - the fleet markers seem to be set further into the harbour than previously? Maybe giving IM more room to rotate the course if necessary?

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    And just to add to that record, Mozzy Sails contacted me direct to ask permission to use my photos and even offered to purchase some, by way of compensation. I am more than happy to contribute any pics that might help his efforts to add to the technical conversation about these amazing...

    AC36: The Match (6-15th March. Reserve days to the 21st)

    Same, built in the UK, but from fibreglass I think: https://www.sirkeithparkmemorial.org.nz/page_events_news.html Edit: Yes, fibreglass shell on a steel framework, built by the same UK replica company that built the MOTAT Hurricane.
