Since the asking price to venues is so dang high this time (to include a bunch of GD’s fundraising) then there’s a good chance the Protocol will reflect a venue bid contract’s requirement that Challengers will be forced to live, practice and race only in that venue for 3 years. So…. Yes, agreed. It would also free up precious-few sailable boats.Oh, and no World Series, of course
Ha! Yes, maybe not for in that venueIn Jeddah ? :lol: :lol:
Agree, good chance since they don’t seem to have any good options solidified. Hard sell, at the asking price. The ‘Origin Sports Group’ may not have come through despite 10 months of effort.My guess is they push the decision out to a future date. None of the current options that we know about are ideal for TNZ. I wouldn’t think it’s hurts their credibility to say we need a little more time and are still evaluating options.
