    ETNZ To Attempt Wind Powered Land Speed Word Record

    How? Its clear that the funds that went into the land speed record attempt are independent of those that go into the Cup. The fact that the Land speed record attempt was already in motion before the venue deal was signed with Barcelona is proof of that.

    Recon diary

    I'm prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt at this stage. It wasn't long ago that they were asking for applications to join the recon team. The teams also haven't really started getting into the swing of fully functioning AC teams. I think the Recon teams will start once the teams arrive...

    The same people who moan on and on about costs and the event being expensive are the same who also moan about restricting the class rule and restricting the freedom of teams to explore any and all avenues. You can't have both. You can't have freedom of design, and less restriction while at the...

    The AC75 is as expensive as any other Americas Cup yacht. Are they all expensive? Yes. Boats aren't the most expensive part of the campaign. People are.

    That "discussion" was purely had here. The fact is, the same team who are competing the Americas Cup are taking on the Land Speed Record. The same team who have designed/ are designing the AC75 are also involved in designing the craft to attempt the record. In reality, no one on here actually...

    One thing is for sure, its good to see the end of Stingray and his boy Tom's mate Mark Dunphy. Like many of us always said... he was a no one that came out of no where, wanted his 15 minutes of fame, and once he got his ass handed to him, he would go back to being a no one. Good riddance.

    They're an Americas Cup team, taking on different projects in order to contribute to the end goal which is winning the Americas Cup. Are they going to race Horonuku in the AC? No, does breaking a wind powered land speed record mean anything when it comes to the AC? No, but it does provide teams...

    Given the AC75 class is guaranteed into the next cycle, the class may actually see a decent future.

    Really? By who? Sounds more like you heard what you wanted to hear, and then thought "I'll post this on SA, this'll prove all those bloody Kiwi's wrong" then like normal, you realise you were so stuck in your own dumb head that what you thought you heard wasn't what was actually said...

    Cheaper than what? Than last time? They certainly did. The only way to make it "cheaper" is to cap the budgets of teams. Even if the AC was in Opti's, teams will still find a way to spend hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Perception is reality when the cameras are on. And you think moving predominantly European teams, families and all from Europe to NZ is cheaper than basing European teams in Europe? Really? Holding the event in Europe drastically reduces logistical resource and cost. Current bases have been...

    No hydrogen boat means risking the perception of ignoring climate change. A risk NO ONE can afford to take. We're yet to see a "world tour of events" looks more like a European or even Spanish tour. Spec boat package - Fuck off. No 40ft boat, teams will just build their own, which means design...

    It is a bit of a shocker of a video, especially given its being promoted by the official Americas Cup channel. You'd think they'd have that sorted by now.
