    My 2 cents worth (for what its worth)

    So, that was spectacular. Particularly if you are a Kiwi, although there are a number of American and other nationalities that were either happy or neutral on this result. I am pleased that Oracle are gone and I hope they stay gone. Not because they might lift the cup off us, but because I...

    What I (think) I learned from today's racing

    Looking at these races, heres what I (think) I learnt: 1. Yesterday was no fluke (obviously). Orifice are now at least as fast in a straight line in these conditions. 2. If Orifice can find another 0.2 knots of boat speed over night they could still do this. However, you would think (and hope...

    Are Orifice Sandbagging?

    Ok, so this is written with a little tongue in cheek, but not a whole lot. Given how bad Orifice are at the moment, are they sandbagging? If we look at the boat speed differences, it is a little hard to tell whether they are going THAT MUCH slower because they are the trailing boat (forced to...

    Dear ETNZ I am a long time supporter of the team in its various forms from all the way back to 1986 in Fremantle. In the absence of any significant useful coverage from the ACEA, myself and a great number of members of the Sailing Anarchy forum have been lucky enough to be able to view some...

    NZ's Perception of Oracle

    Well, I was in the cafe yesterday with my son and overheard three women in their 60s yakking on about the AC. I thought it was all very cute when they talked about red socks and being so proud of the boys. But then it got nasty with them saying they hoped the mongrels don't intentionally smash...

    What is the likelihood that Oracle will reobund and defend the cup?

    Ok, so after 5 races we have seen a lot closer racing than many of us (including me) expected, but Oracle are still looking very on the back foot. What chance do you think Oracle has of making a comeback and defending the cup?

    How are you Oracle supporters feeling about your team after the ruling

    Ok, so this is not an attempt to stick the boot in but rather just curiously asking the question. Now that the ruling has come out and some of your boys have been found to have cheated, how does this affect your feelings about the team? Non-Oracle supporters: Please resist the undoubted urge...
