I don't think ACE violated anything.

Malibu Cindy and her bunch of merry fuckwits have sent Jaffaland to level 3 so racing can't happen without the aforementioned exemption.
I suspect this forum has a slight right wing bent to it ........ie tax payers

If they wait, go back down a level then get more cases this can go on and on. 
Unfortunately it might.

But the Kiwis, like the Aussies, have become quite proficient at reacting to any outbreak very fast, using tracking and testing to identify those infected, and get the "spot fire" under control.

The result is that lockdowns are now geographically limited, and don't last as long as they otherwise might. IMO.

Although I read that Ben Ainslie didn't think the twin skin sail is much better than a single skin, I think it will trickle down through the racing fleets in due course. Contrary to BA, one of the designers (I think) gave his opinion that the twin skin is almost as efficient as the wing sail, and there's also been comment that the AC75 can sail at a better VMG/TWS than the AC50 upwind. Don't know how accurate these remarks are though.

BTW, there was a post about a large yacht that has been designed using the same style of canting foils! Possibly a novelty though?
I'd like to see an AC75 with a single skinned main...

There is no force majeure clause in the Protocol.
Yes there is, but only about parties liabilities.

58.5 None of the Indemnified Parties shall be liable for any losses, damages, injury, loss of profits, loss of prospective profits, consequential damages, penalties or inconvenience, whether direct or indirect, however arising, as a result of the postponement or cancellation of the whole or any part of AC36 due to any event, occurrence or circumstances whatsoever, including acts of God, terrorism, war, government intervention or regulation, public health, environmental conditions, strikes, lock-outs, other industrial acts, lack of funding or support, or any other force majeure circumstance.

It would be fair to say that I don't have a huge amount in common with any of NZs political parties.

I am socially and fiscally liberal in that I think people should be able to do what they want with their money and bodies as long as they don't impinge on others.

This means I am diametrically opposed to the lefts desire for taxation.

But I'm also diametrically opposed to the rights social conservatism and voted for cannibis legalisation despite not smoking it myself.

For me the most objectionable aspect of the current government is it's pure incompetence.

Neither John Key nor Helen Clark came close to this level of bumblefuckery.

Those who claims how wonderful Cindy has been in this pandemic should remember that unlike most countries, we have a miniscule population and massive natural borders and despite having previously eliminated the virus, this government's incompetence has allowed it back into the community on more than one occasion.

Worst government since Muldoon.

The second labour Government under David Lange was also very bad 

Have a look at a Nolan chart you might find it interesting

You are not that alone. History tells us that the people wanted Lenin. His legacy is about 60m deaths. Welcome to the socialist revolution.
